SKF housings for paper machines must be mounted properly by experienced, knowledgeable people using the correct tools.
SBFN housings can be mounted at angles of 0°, 90°, 180° and 270°. To prevent oil leakage, the arrow on the cover should always point upward.
For SBFN and SBPN housings, the interface between the housing and covers should be coated with an oil-resistant sealant.
SBPN and SDM housings should be mounted so that the oil outlets with the plastic plugs are facing outward.
For additional information, contact the SKF application engineering service. SKF can also assist during mounting or provide a complete installation service.

Eye bolts and lifting holes

SBFN and SBPN housings are supplied with an eye bolt on top. SDM housings have two flanges on the cap with a cast hole in each (fig. 1).

Cap bolt torque specifications

Cap bolts should be tightened to the recommended torque values listed in table 1.
