Browning pillow block bearings feature a powder coat epoxy cast iron housing, a zone-hardened inner ring with 120-degree spacing set screw lock, diamond-faceted set screws, and a single lip contact seal and flinger. These mounted bearings come in different types of materials to support use in most industrial settings in applications that handle light to moderate loads.
Browning pillow block bearings feature–
- Two-bolt housing with ball bearing insert for a straightforward, ready-to-mount installation
- Relubricatable solid one-piece housing pillow block for maximum strength and rigidity
- Cast iron housing and steel bearing unit for carrying shafts with radial or radial and thrust loads
- Non-expansion-type bearing with eccentric locking collar for secure attachment to guided shaft
- Contact and flinger seals to retain lubricant while protecting against contaminants
More on Browning Pillow Block Bearings
Browning pillow block bearings, also sometimes referred to as plummer block bearings, feature housings that have bearings fitted inside. They are generally mounted in cleaner environments and bear low to moderate loads, and their primary application is to mount bearings safely with a stationary outer ring and a rotating inner ring.
Bearing housing can either be split type or solid type. Split type generally being split into a two-piece housing where the cap and the base may be detached, and solid type being single-piece bearings. The housing portion of the bearing is generally manufactured from cast iron; however, various grades of metals can be used. The bearing element can be manufactured from 52100 chromium steel alloy, stainless steel, plastic, bronze, or other synthetic materials.
Engineering of Pillow Block Bearings
Pillow block bearings utilize mounting holes or slots at the housing surface in order to facilitate the bearing insert's mounting and secure adjustment onto the inner ring. This contributes to this bearing’s user-friendly nature and success in smoothly allowing for the shaft's rotation. The pillow block bearing does not rely on impeccable precision for its fit as a result of its perfectly-designed spherical ball, which compensates for misalignment during function.
