The permissible operating temperature for cylindrical roller bearings can be limited by:
- the dimensional stability of the bearing rings and rollers
- the lubricant
Where temperatures outside the permissible range are expected, contact SKF.
Bearing rings and rollers
SKF cylindrical roller bearings are heat stabilized up to 150 °C (300 °F).
For temperature limits of SKF greases, refer to Selecting a suitable grease.
When using lubricants not supplied by SKF, temperature limits should be evaluated according to the Traffic light concept.
