Product DescriptionGAC50F SKF Angular Contact Spherical Plain Bearing
The sliding contact surfaces of angular contact spherical plain bearings are spherical in shape and are inclined at an angle to the bearing axis. As a result, these bearings are well suited for accommodating both radial and axial loads. Single angular contact spherical plain bearings can only accommodate axial loads acting in one direction. These bearings can be separated, enabling the rings to be mounted separately.
The inner and outer rings are made of bearing steel that has been through-hardened and ground. The sliding layer of fibre reinforced polymer, containing PTFE, is injection moulded onto the outer ring. The sliding surface of the inner ring is hard chromium plated and coated with a lithium base grease.
Operating temperature ranges from -40 to +75°C, although temperatures up to 110°C can be tolerated for brief periods. However, load carrying capacity will be reduced at temperatures that exceed 50°C.
