Timken manufactures a full gamut of bearing products, including Timken pillow block bearings. Pillow block bearings, otherwise referred to as plummer block bearings, are a mounted bearing type that is used to provide load support for a rotating shaft. Their mounting surface is on a plane parallel and offset to the axis of the shaft, and mounting holes or slots in the base or feet of pillow block bearings permit adjustment and easy mounting.

Types of Pillow Block Bearings

Pillow block bearings consist of a bearing inside a housing. Many pillow blocks have a replaceable bearing, which is also referred to as an “insert bearing.” Bearings used with pillow block housings are usually self-aligning to compensate for angular misalignments. Also, pillow blocks are available with many different bearing types, including:

  • Plain Bearings
  • Ball Bearings Roller Bearings
  • Tapered-Roller Bearings
  • Spherical-Roller Bearings
  • Cylindrical-Roller Bearings
  • Needle-Roller Bearings
  • Hydrodynamic Bearings

Materials for Timken Pillow Block Bearings

As stated above, pillow block bearings feature housing components which can be made from a variety of materials, each well suited for specific applications. These different materials feature different properties which render them suitable for a variety of uses. Housing materials include:

  • Aluminum– high load-carrying capacity, fatigue strength, and thermal conductivity
  • Cast Iron– the most common material for pillow block bearing housings
  • Pressed Steel– a less expensive material used in lower load-carrying applications
  • Plastic– common plastics used for housings include Acetal, Nylon, Polyamide, and Teflon
  • Stainless Steel– chemical and corrosion resistant, with relatively high pressure ratings And more
