- an adapter sleeve on plain (a) or stepped shafts (b) (fig. 2)
- a withdrawal sleeve on stepped shafts (fig. 3)
Adapter sleeves are supplied complete with a locking device.
For appropriate SKF adapter sleeves, refer to product table.
When using sealed bearings, make sure appropriate SKF adapter sleeve assemblies (e.g. E design sleeve, refer to product table) are used to prevent the locking device from interfering with the seal (fig. 4). Alternatively, use a spacer ring between the bearing and the lock washer.
When two of these bearings are used to support a shaft, to locate the shaft axially the inner ring slots must be arranged facing towards or away from each other (fig. 5).
Appropriate SKF bearing housings are available in a variety of designs and sizes for a wide range of applications. The designs include:
- SNL, SE plummer (pillow) block housings in the 2, 3, 5 and 6 series
- FNL flanged housings
- SAF plummer (pillow) block housings for inch shafts
For additional information, refer to Bearing housings.
