Load carrying capacity

Take-up housings made of cast iron or composite for SKF Food Line are able to withstand at least the same dynamic and static loads as the Y-bearings they incorporate. These Y-bearing units can also be used in applications where shock loads or varying axial loads occur, provided the strength of the adjustment screw and the way it is secured to the Y-bearing unit is sufficient.


If Y-bearing units are to be used in an application where health, safety, or the environment is at risk, the SKF application engineering service has to be contacted during the design phase.
