CLI flanged inch sized miniature bearings have a solid steel flange on the outer ring. This allows the bearing to be more easily located in a housing. The flange can also help to prevent axial movement of the bearing in the event of a thrust load on the bearing.
It is easier to maintain the position of a flanged bearing in the housing where a lot of vibration is present. Flanged bearings are sometimes used where the housing is made from a different material and may expand more than the bearing outer ring at higher temperatures. The resulting loose fit may allow a non-flanged bearing to move within the housing.
CLI flanged chrome steel bearings, with a steel retainer and a suitable lubricant, can be used at temperatures of 120°C constant or up to 150°C intermittent. Above these temperatures, the load capacity of chrome steel is reduced and the steel undergoes more of a dimensional change than stainless steel.
