Design considerations

SKF housings are typically designed for self-aligning ball bearings, spherical roller bearings and CARB toroidal roller bearings. These bearings are chosen because they are insensitive to initial misalignment, which normally occurs when the housings are spaced far apart.
Two-bearing housings have inherently aligned bearing seats and therefore can accommodate rigid bearings such as deep groove ball bearings, angular contact ball bearings and cylindrical roller bearings.
