Load carrying capacity

Split cylindrical roller bearings have less capacity to carry load than non-split bearings as comparatively fewer rollers can be incorporated because of the split design of the cage.
The over-rolling of the joins in the raceways by the rollers is taken into account when calculating the equivalent dynamic load bearing by a factor, the value of which depends on the mode of operation, see under Equivalent dynamic bearing load.
