What are Light Duty Bearings?

Pillow block or flange mounted light duty bearings mount bearings safely enabling the outer ring to be stationary while allowing rotation of the inner ring. Housed bearings are bolted to a foundation through the holes in the base. On some styles, seals are provided to prevent dust and other contaminants from entering the housing. The housing provides a clean environment for the bearing to freely rotate, increasing their performance and duty cycle.

What is a Pillow Block bearing?

Pillow Block Bearings are bearing units that are contained inside a housing unit. The housing provides a rigid and secure positioning while allowing the bearing unit to rotate within a clean contained environment. The housing is bolted to a foundation allowing the outer ring of the bearing to remain stationary while the inner ring rotates. Housed bearings are generally used in light duty applications.

Do bearings require lubrication?

As with most moving parts, proper lubrication is important to ensure the life of the product as well as reduce friction. Climax bearings require manual lubrication while others are self-lubricating. For those bearings requiring manual lubrication, an accessible oil-hole is provided. UHMW-PE solid bearings or UHMW-PE inserts are self-lubricating.
