Because of their versatility and cost-effectiveness, ball bearing units are typically used in many industrial applications.
Ball bearing units consist of an insert bearing mounted in a housing. An insert bearing is a deep groove ball bearing with a sphered (convex) outside surface and an extended inner ring that includes a mechanism to lock the unit onto the shaft. The housings have a correspondingly sphered but concave bore.
SKF roller bearing units (mounted bearing units) are robust, ready-to-mount bearing units that are assembled, lubricated and sealed at the factory for maximum service life.
The assortment includes bearing units with a pillow (plummer) block housing, including a relubrication-free variant, and units with a flanged housing, each optimized to accommodate different operating conditions. All bearing units are available as locating (held) or non-locating (free) units.
Bearing housings support your bearings, protect them from contaminants while keeping in lubricant, and can also house monitoring equipment. Essentially, they provide customizable mounted bearing solutions and help maximize performance, service life and cost-efficient maintenance of the incorporated bearing.
