Bearing Units and Pillow Blocks
Regardless of your industry type, TFL offers various seated bearing units to meet your application needs. Whether it is mining, construction or food processing, TFL can provide solutions for your industry.
The vertical bearing unit and the pillow block bearing are pedestal-mounted bearing seats, consisting of a mounting block with a bearing. The block is fixed on the base, and a shaft is inserted to rotate the internal parts. To obtain a tight fit, the inside of the bearing is usually a little larger than the shaft. Set screws or locking rings can be used to fix the shaft. Vertical bearing housings and pillow block housings have similar designs, and both use the same type of bearings, but they differ in application. Pillows are used for lighter applications, while stand blocks transmit high power and support heavy industrial loads.
What are pillow block bearings used for? Bearing housing can refer to various bearing types, such as single-row ball bearings, double row ball bearings, spherical roller bearings, tapered roller bearings, etc. A unit usually refers to a one-piece housing instead of a split housing.
Pillow block bearings vary by the type of rolling element, which might include ball bearings, roller bearings (which consist of cylinders between the inner and outer rings of the bearing), tapered rollers, needle rollers; or metallic or synthetic bushing.
Certain combinations of housing type and bearing type determine the best pillow block bearing for a given application or condition.
