All SDAF housings must be mounted properly using the appropriate tools and state of the art mechanical mounting methods. All the associated components must also meet certain basic requirements (→ Specifications for shafts and housing support surfaces). Mounting instructions are provided with the housing. For information about mounting rolling bearings, refer to the SKF bearing maintenance handbook or skf.com/mount.
Cap bolt torque specifications
Cap bolts should be tightened to the torque values listed in the product tables for bearings on an adapter sleeve and for bearings with a cylindrical bore.
Pinning or supporting the housing
Some load conditions may require the housing to be pinned to its support surface or a stop to accommodate loads acting parallel to the housing support surface (→ Additional housing support).
