What options are available on bearing housings?

Bearing housings are assemblies which are designed to be easy to install, whilst protecting the bearing, extending its operating life.

They are available in a wide range of imperial and metric bore sizes, with designs such as split pillow blocks, solid blocks, flanged housings and two bearing housings. Split housings are also available in applications where ease of assembly and maintenance is essential.

Bearing housings are supplied in cast iron as standard, but corrosion resistant stainless steel and thermoplastic are also available for applications which need to withstand high pressure washdowns or comply with hygiene regulations, for example in the food & beverage or pharmaceuticals industries.
