General operating limitations of mounted ball bearing units

These units are suited to applications in which static misalignment of up to 2 deg must be overcome, but are not well suited to high speed, dynamic misalignment applications where an internally aligning bearing system would offer better overall performance, as well as a range of sealing systems.

Operating temperature range -20 to +100 Celsius, but at temperatures above 70C, grease degradation should be considered a limiting factor.
