Bearing PV Value
PV is the product of the specific bearing load P and the sliding speed V. It is a very important design data for the bearing application. The PV value is inverse proportional to the bearing service life (Graph 12). So it is recommended to consider a lower design PV value during the bearing selection.

Graph 13: Correction factor of PV value by Intermittent Operation
Intermittent operation correction factor y1
Commonly the bearings are not continuously running during most of the applications. The short time operation period (less than 10 minutes) does not allow the bearing reach the highest limited operation temperature so that the limited PV value will increase because during the stop period, the heat generated by the friction will be reduced. Graph 13 shows the intermittent operation correction factor y1 for different stop and operate period. Lubricating operation correction factor y2Although CSB-EPB bearings are normally designed for the dry operation, it has good the general lubricant such as oil or grease. The initial oil or grease lubricating will improve the starting performance of the bearings and therefore achieves a shorter run-in time. At the same time, the using of lubricants considerably improves the loading capability of the bearings because the lubricants will reduce the temperature increasing during the operation so that the loading capability of the bearings is improved. Graph 14 shows the PV correction factor y2 for different lubricants are used. The Bearing WearAs the bearings wear resistance affected by many factors, it is difficult to accurately describe bearing wear and life span. Through numerous experiments we can conclude that the main factors affect the anti-wear property are the load, moving method, speed, roughness of mating surfaces, ambient temperature and dust and type of the outside lubricating medium, etc. When the load, speed and temperature increase, the wear resistance of bearings gradually reduced; when there is outside lubrication medium, the wear resistance could be doubled; CSB recommend the roughness of axis to be Ra0.2 ~ Ra0.8. If the shaft is too rough or too smooth, it might increase the wear. Although there is no special restriction on the using of shaft material for the CSB-EPB series bearings, CSB recommend the use of hard chrome plated shaft material. The recommended shaft hardness is over HRC35 in order to avoid the initial wear off on the shaft. Bearing UV- resistance PerformanceBearings used for outdoor equipments are constantly exposed to different critical environment. Anti-UV property is one of the most important indexes of a variety of bearing materials to resist UV-ray damage. CSB-EPB Series plastic bearing UV-resistance reference (Graph 16).
