  43. 43. DualVee® Wheel Capacities Sizing and life estimate in 3 simple steps: Step 1: Calculate the loads on each bearing in the system Step 2: Calculate the load factor (LF) for the most heavily loaded wheel Step 3: Calculate the life estimate using the equation Working Load Capacities Working load capacities are based on empirical data on guide wheels used in general applications with static and dynamic load conditions. Guide wheels can routinely achieve travel life of one million cycles or higher when these specified load capacities are observed.
