Bearing selection

Bearing selection is usually based on a variety of factors such as:
  • life required
  • servicing requirements (maintained or maintenance free)
  • load type (constant, cyclic, shock etc)
  • RPM and/or oscillation rate
  • environment (contamination possibilities)
  • temperature ranges
  • installation requirements.
