Loads and selecting bearing size

The bearing size is selected based on the basic static load rating C0 (→ product tables).

For an equivalent static bearing load P0, the selected bearing must have a C0 value ≥ the value of the requisite basic static load rating C0req (table 1).

The values in table 1 are valid only when P0 = Fr. That is, when:

  • Fa < 0,8 Fr
  • Fa < 0,15 C0
