SKF ConCentra roller bearing units must be mounted properly using the appropriate tools and state of the art mechanical mounting methods. All the associated components must also meet certain basic requirements (→ Specifications for shafts and housing support surfaces).
The mounting collar of bearing units in the SYNT and FYNT series is equipped with M6 grub (set) screws, the number of which depends on the size of the bearing unit. SKF recommends using a torque wrench to tighten these grub (set) screws. The tightening torque is 8 Nm.
Do not tighten the grub (set) screws until the bearing unit is positioned on the shaft. If the screws are tightened prematurely, the stepped sleeve may deform.
Attaching bearing units in the FYNT series to a machine wall
Bearing units in the FYNT series are produced standard with a machined recess, which can be used to centre the housing on a shoulder. With this arrangement, the attachment bolts are not subjected to shear forces. The shoulder can be provided either by machining the wall or by attaching a guide ring to the wall. The dimensions of the recess Da, are provided in the product table.
Dowel pins can also be used where necessary. Recommendations for the position and size of the holes to accommodate dowel pins are provided in table 1.
Pinning or supporting bearing units in the SYNT series
Some load conditions may require the housing to be pinned to its support surface or to provide a stop to accommodate loads acting parallel to the support surface (→ Additional housing support for bearing units in the SYNT series). Recommendations for the position and size of the holes to accommodate dowel pins are provided in table 2.
