The permissible operating temperature is mainly limited by the seals and lubricant. For temperature limits of SKF bearings and lubricants, refer to the relevant product information. For temperature limits of the seals used in PD housings, refer to table 1.
The housing material does not set any additional temperature limits, except for very low temperature applications where impact strength could be a factor.
The housing paint is heat resistant up to 80 °C (175 °F) material temperature or 100 °C (210 °F) ambient temperature.
When temperatures outside the permissible range are expected, contact the SKF application engineering service.
