Locating and non-locating bearing positions

FNL housings can be used for both the locating and non-locating bearing positions. The housings are machined standard for bearings in the non-locating position. Bearings in the locating position as well as CARB toroidal roller bearings must be secured in the housing with a spacing washer or one or two locating rings (fig. 1). Appropriate spacing washers and locating rings are listed in the product table.
When a spacing washer or only one locating ring is used, it should be inserted on the cover side of the bearing. When two locating rings are used, one should be placed on each side of the bearing.
