Loads

Minimum load

information
Requisite minimum load
Pm = 0,01 C0

Oil lubricated bearings:

n/nr ≤ 0,3 → Pm = 0,003 C0

Obtain the axial drive-up distance

Axial load carrying capacitySKF spherical roller bearings are able to accommodate heavy axial loads and even accommodate purely axial loads.
Bearings correctly mounted on an adapter sleeve on plain shafts without fixed abutment:

Fap = 0,003 B d

 
Equivalent dynamic bearing load

information
Equivalent dynamic bearing load, P
Fa/Fr ≤ e → P = Fr + Y1 Fa

Fa/Fr > e → P = 0,67 Fr + Y2 Fa
