Where are pillow block roller bearing units used?

A pillow block roller bearing unit, also known as a plummer block roller bearing unit, consists of a robust mounting bracket which houses a roller bearing.

The housing is generally made from cast iron as standard, but other material options such as cast steel are available.

Pillow blocks can be found in almost every industry, with pillow block roller bearing units particularly suited to applications with a high load and a low to medium speed.

These units have a variety of sealing options and end covers to suit even the most contaminated of environments.
