 Minimum load For additional information → Requisite minimum load Frm = 0,02 C Except for SKF Explorer bearings: Frm = 0,017 C Perform calculations Equivalent dynamic bearing load For additional information → Equivalent dynamic bearing load, P Face-to-face or back-to-back arrangement Fa/Fr ≤ e → P = Fr + Y1 Fa Fa/Fr > e → P = 0,67 Fr + Y2 Fa Tandem arrangement1) Fa/Fr ≤ e → P = Fr Fa/Fr > e → P = 0,4 Fr + Y Fa Perform calculations Equivalent static bearing load For additional information → Equivalent static load Face-to-face or back-to-back arrangement P0 = Fr + Y0 Fa Tandem arrangement1) P0 = 0,5 Fr + Y0 Fa P0 < Fr → P0 = Fr

1) When determining the axial load Fa, refer to Calculating the axial load for bearings mounted singly or paired in tandem.
