Lubrication and Temperature Requirements
All bearings are supplied in rust preventative oil and should be cleaned and lubricated before use. Good quality medium oils and light ball bearing greases have the advantage of greater surface cohesion. High grade light oil will allow a higher operating speed and greater sensitivity to movement. Working temperatures under maximum load conditions should not exceed 120°C although the bearings can operate safely at slightly higher temperatures and under decreased load conditions, with special lubricants. For continuous high temperature operation, suitable grades of silicone grease should be used.
CAUTION:Excessive press fits may affect preload. If in doubt please contact us for alternative mounting methods.
