SKF high temperature deep groove ball bearings should always be hot mounted to reduce the mounting force and the risk of breaking the graphite lubricant (VA208 and VA228 variants). An induction heater is the preferred choice to heat the bearing during mounting.
Submerging the bearing in hot oil is not recommended because the oil remaining in the bearing might carbonize later during operation.
Do not use impact mounting methods that could damage the bearing and prevent proper functionality.
