Minimum load
Refer to Minimum load of standard bearings.

When compared to a bearing with steel rolling elements, hybrid bearings are less sensitive to skidding and smearing damage that occurs in lightly loaded applications, even if light loads are only a small part of a variable load cycle.
Axial preload

For additional
(→ Axial preload)
To provide low noise and high-speed operation, typically an axial preload to a bearing arrangement comprising two hybrid deep groove ball bearings is applied. Axial preload can be applied with spring washers, as described under Preloading with springs.
Axial load

Identical to standard bearings (→ Axial load carrying capacity)

= 0,5 (d + D)
e=limit for the load ratio depending on the relationship f0 Fa/C0 (table 1)
f0=calculation factor (→ product table)
Fa=axial load [kN]
Fr=radial load [kN]
Frm=minimum radial load [kN]
kr=minimum load factor (→ product table)
n=rotational speed [r/min]
P=equivalent dynamic bearing load [kN]
P0=equivalent static bearing load [kN]
X=calculation factor for the radial load (table 1)
