Load and Speed Limitations

IntroductionSelection GuideEngineeering DataBrochure

The load ratings shown in the product tables are not additive. For combined simultaneous loading, an equivalent radial or thrust load must be considered. In general, C-Type bearings are designed for radial loading applications; moderate thrust and/or moment loading may be applied in combination with radial loading. For thrust loading applications use the A-Type bearing; any radial loading should only be applied in combination with thrust loading. X-Type bearings are primarily for reversing thrust and moment loading, pure radial loading should not be applied.

The limiting speeds shown in the product tables are based on standard lubrication. The unsealed bearing speeds are calculated assuming the bearings are lubricated with MIL-L-3150. Limiting speeds for sealed bearings are calculated assuming the bearings are lubricated with MIL-G-23827 grease. If bearings are lubricated with alternate oils or greases, new limiting speeds must be calculated, see operating conditions.
