Split housing pillow blocks, also known as split pillow block bearings, are available for shaft sizes ranging from 1-3/16” to 10-1/2”. These units have multiple designs, offering a choice of two or four-bolt base mountings, depending on the split housing’s size. The pillow block is split into an upper and lower housing, which can be detached from one another.
With different housing options and seal designs, split housing units can be very cost effective. Get maximum service life with less need for maintenance.
Various seals may be included with split housing pillow blocks to stop dust and other contaminants from entering the bearing. Split housings provide an excellent environment for bearings to freely rotate, which increases their performance, thus extending their life.
