Pillow blocks, also known as plummer blocks, are a kind of bearing housing. They consist of a pedestal that provides support for a rotating shaft. They have the bearings fitted into them; therefore, you don't need to buy and fit separate bearings. They are usually used for lighter loads in general industrial applications, although 'plummer blocks' can also refer to bearing housings designed for heavier usage.
We stock both cast iron pillow block housings and stainless steel pillow block housing units in a range of inside diameters.
Our cast iron pillow block housings come from the manufacturers SKF, RHP, EU Budget and Balder Dodge and include SKF's range of pillow blocks suitable for use with high temperatures. Our stainless steel pillow block housing units are made by the EU Budget brand. Every pillow block housing is fitted with a lubrication nipple to allow easy re-lubrication. The inserts are available separately and can be removed and replaced when necessary, extending the life of the housing.
Once you have selected the components you need, you can pay at our secure, easy-to-use online checkout. We accept bank transfer, PayPal, credit and debit cards.
