Different bearing types can be used for specific maximum speeds only. A maximum speed parameter defines the maximum permissible speeds for standard designs. The speed parameter n x dm is the product of speed and mean bearing diameter.
Single row deep groove ball bearings, for example, can be used for speed parameters of up to n x dm = 500,000.
If the speed is to be increased even further, special measures are required, e.g.:
Such a modified design can have the potential for achieving a speed parameter of more than 1 million.
