|Throughout the SRB range, the support units have been designed to provide a rigid and stable base to enable the associated bearing to operate to its full potential. With this in mind, all types of SRB support unit are manufactured from Grade 250 cast iron (BS EN1561:1997) and include strengthening webs and ribs to provide a highly robust unit. In order to compliment the inherent strength, we recommend that careful consideration be given to the siting and mounting of the support unit.|
To determine a supports suitability, one should consider the resultant effective load derived in the bearing selection process and the direction of that load. The diagram shown indicates the area in which the full Cor rating of the bearing may be applied. Should the direction of the applied load be outside this area it may be necessary to consider alternative designs or materials. SRB Technical Services have a proven track record of innovative solutions and would be happy to provide assistance.
