Locating bearings to accommodate radial and axial load:

Fa/Fr ≤ e → P = Fr + Y1 Fa
Fa/Fr > e → P = X Fr + Y2 Fa 

For a proper functionality, SKF recommends:

  • Fa ≥ 1,27 Fr for bearings in the QJ 2, QJ 3 and QJ 10 series
  • Fa ≥ 1,78 Fr for bearings in the QJ 12 series

Thrust bearings with radial clearance in the housing in combination with a radial bearing (fig. 1):

  • P = 1,07 Fa for bearings in the QJ 2, QJ 3 and QJ 10 series
  • P = 0,81 Fa for bearings in the QJ 12 series
