Permissible speed

The permissible speed is the lower value of:
SKF recommends oil lubrication for bearings with a ring centred cage. When SKF high-capacity cylidrical roller bearings are grease lubricated (→ Adjustments of relubrication intervals due to operating conditions and bearing types, Cylindrical roller bearings) the ndm value is limited to ≤ 250 000 mm/min.
where
dm
bearing mean diameter [mm]
= 0,5 (d + D)
n
rotational speed [r/min]
Higher speeds are possible with modified bearing designs or with additional heat dissipation from the application. For additional information, contact the SKF application engineering service.
