Depending on their design and series, SKF support rollers are fitted with one of the cages shown in table 1. The standard cage is not identified in the bearing designation.
The lubricants generally used for rolling bearings do not have a detrimental effect on cage properties. However, some synthetic oils and greases with a synthetic oil base and lubricants containing EP additives, when used at high temperatures, can have a detrimental effect on polyamide cages. For information about the suitability of cages, refer to Cages and Cage materials.
