Single row radial ball bearings with balls separated by a cage can support radial
loads, axial loads and tilting moments.
A full complement V-type ball bearing can support only radial loads and some low axial loads.
Maximum permissible speeds for ball bearings are mainly related to the bearing design and size, cage type, bearing internal clearance, method and type of lubrication, manufacturing accuracy, sealing methods and loads.
Single row radial ball bearings are precision components and have low torque and noise levels.
Shaft and housing seats with poor accuracy, fitting errors and shaft bending might
cause inclination between the inner and outer rings although the internal clearance
of the bearing will permit this to a certain extent.
Generally, the maximum permissible inclination between the inner and outer, rings is approximately l in 300.
Bearings under load deform elastically at the contact point between the rolling element and bearing ring. This in influenced by the bearing type, size, form and load.
The single row radial ball bearing is a non-separable bearing.
Therefore, shafts and housings should be so designed to enable bearing inspection and replacement when necessary.
Improved axial location is obtation with NR and F type bearings.
