Depending on the bearing type and size, mechanical, thermal or hydraulic methods are used for mounting. In all cases it is important that the bearing rings, cages and rolling elements or seals do not receive direct blows and that the mounting force must never be directed through the rolling elements.
Some parts may be mounted with a loose fit. To avoid any fretting corrosion between the mating surfaces, it is recommended to apply a thin layer of SKF anti-fretting agent LGAF 3 E.
Detailed instructions for a selected bearing can be found at
Tools for mounting of bearings can be found in the section Maintenance products.
