The permissible operating temperature for spherical roller thrust bearings can be limited by:
- the dimensional stability of the bearing washers
- the lubricant
When temperatures outside the permissible range are expected, contact the SKF application engineering service.
SKF spherical roller thrust bearings undergo a special heat treatment. The bearing washers are heat stabilized up to at least 200 °C (390 °F) for 2 500 h, or for brief periods at even higher temperatures.
