Loads and selecting bearing size

The bearing size is selected based on the basic static load rating C0. Basic static load ratings for bearings are listed in the product tables.
For an equivalent static bearing load P0, the selected bearing must have a C0 value ≥ the value of requisite basic static load rating C0req specified in table 1.


The values in table 1 are valid only when P0 = Fr. That is, when:

Fa < 0,8 Fr


Fa < 0,15 C0

P0=equivalent static bearing load [kN]
Fa=axial load [kN]
Fr=radial load [kN]
C0=basic static load rating [kN]
