Bearing storage

Bearings are coated with a rust preventative compound and securely packaged before delivery. Please observe the following guidelines when storing bearings.

  1. Ideally, bearings should be stored in a location with low humidity, i.e. less than 60% relative humidity.
  2. Bearings should never be stored on the ground, but should be stored on shelves or palettes at least 20 cm above the ground.
  3. Boxes of bearings should not be stacked too high or the rust preventative compound may be squeezed out of bearings on the bottom.
