The temperature of the bearing rises as the rotational speed of the bearing rises owing to heat buildup inside the bearing due to friction. This might cause a lot of damage to the bearing, such as seizure, and the bearing will be unable to keep operating in a good condition.
Numerous mechanical and kinematic factors restrict the maximum speed of a ball bearing in operation. Narrow bearing and surrounding part tolerances, particular lubrication and lubricant type measures, as well as special retainer materials and designs, all have a major affect on the speed limit. As a reason, Feiken Bearing simply provide an idea of the ball bearing’s relative speed appropriateness. If your operating circumstances are different, please contact us for further information.
