The permissible operating temperature for indexing roller units can be limited by:
- the dimensional stability of the roller unit rings and rollers
- the O-rings
- the lubricant
Where temperatures outside the permissible range are expected, contact SKF.
Roller unit rings and rollers
SKF indexing roller units are heat stabilized up to 150 °C (300 °F).
The permissible operating temperature for FKM O-rings is –30 to +200 °C (–20 to + 390 °F). Temperatures up to 230 °C (445 °F) can be tolerated for brief periods.
