Load carrying capacity

For information about breaking loads for SBFN housings, contact SKF for more information. SBPN and SDM housings are intended for loads acting perpendicular toward the support surface.
Guideline values for the permissible loads for SDM housings, based on cap bolt strength, are provided in table 1. Housings for paper machines should always be supported over the entire base. Perpendicular loads toward the support surface are limited only by the bearing.

Additional housing support

When radial loads act at angles between 30° and 120° on SDM and SBPN housings or between 90° and 270° on SBFN housings, a stop should be provided to counter the load. The stop should be sufficiently strong to accommodate the loads acting parallel to the support surface (fig. 1).
