A-5 BALL BEARING HOUSED UNITS
Installations that operate at high temperatures for extended periods may lose the quality of shaft and housing fits. Carefully machined and heat-treated shafts and housings will minimize trouble from this source. In some applications, the internal clearance of bearings may be partially absorbed. For example, during the first few seconds of rotation, a massive housing may keep the outer race cooler than the inner race and balls, even if the housing is already at some elevated temperature. Also, during heat soakback, when rotation stops, heat may flow back to the bearing along the shaft. If, while stationary, the effects of heat soakback nullify

When given a stabilizing heat treatment, A295 steel is suitable for many applications in the 177 - 232 C (350 - 450 F) range; however, it is not as stable dimensionally as it is at temperatures below 177 C (350 F). If utmost stability is required, use materials in the 316 C (600 F) group below.

NOTE: Bearings have been made of special material for operation at temperatures above 427 C (800 F). Consult your Timken engineer regarding the application. ASTM A295 bearing steels are suitable for many applications up to 212 C (413 F) but are not as dimensionally stable as they are at the temperatures below 100 C (212 F).
This table provides standard operating temperatures for common bearing component materials. It should be used for reference purposes only. Other bearing component materials are available on request. Contact your Timken engineer for further information. the radial internal clearance, radial brinelling of the races may occur and the bearing will be rough during subsequent rotation. Bearings with greater internal looseness may be required to compensate for these conditions. Consult your Timken engineer for recommendations.Previous Page
