Bearing housings come in several varieties, each with its own specific uses. Simply Bearings stocks a fantastic range, and as always, price, delivery and service are unbeatable, with same-day dispatch on most items.
Pillow block housings are designed to give support to a rotating shaft. Ours are available in cast iron, stainless steel and a stainless steel/thermoplastic combination which gives both flexibility and strength. Pillow block housings can also be ordered in a block and grub screw configuration and in miniature and small footprint versions. We also have bolt pressed steel ones.
Take up units are available in cast iron, stainless steel and the stainless steel/thermoplastic combination. There's a range of bore sizes in both metric and imperial measurements. These bearings are very cost-effective, can be re-lubricated and the insert can be replaced. There's a grub screw fixing and they're food safe and are approved. They are extremely durable and strong.
Pressed steel housings are available in round, oval and triangular versions, and we also stock pressed steel pillow blocks. Or you can order housings only to go with specific inserts.
Hanger bearing units will allow you to support a screw conveyor shaft. The insert has a couple of grub screws which you can tighten against the shaft once you've finished the installation. If you need to replace the housing at any point, you can simply remove it.
Cast iron belt tensioners for conveyor belts come with a flat back bearing insert already fitted and offer a great solution in engineering, agricultural, automotive and industrial environments.
Cartridge units are also cast iron and are fitted with a full-width bearing. These units allow you to use self-aligning bearing inserts instead of fixed bearings.
If you only need housings, we stock cast iron and pressed steel round housings with a range of metric and imperial bore sizes.
All the housed and assembled bearing units we stock are shown online with schematic illustrations to help you decide which parts you need, and our ranges are really comprehensive.
Simply Bearings is, without question, the best retailer in the UK for bearing housings, inserts, hanger units, seals and other engineering supplies. We have a 35,000-product inventory featuring every top name in the business, with both metric and imperial sizing.
