The Link-Belt P-LB6800 series spherical roller bearing pillow block is built for carrying shafts with radial or combination radial and thrust loads. The four-bolt cast iron housing with spherical roller bearing insert provides ready-to-mount installation. It has a split housing pillow block with removable housing cap to help mounting, inspection, and maintenance. The Labyrinth seals protect against contamination and help retain lubricant at higher shaft speeds. It can be relubricated if necessary. A non-expansion-type bearing with an adapter-mounted locking collar provides a secure attachment to a guided shaft. The pillow block is suitable for conveyors, dryers, road building equipment, runout tables, fans, crushers, hammermills, and other heavy-duty applications.
Mounted bearings combine a bearing mounted inside a housing unit. The bearing housing replaces the need for a casting or weldment to position the bearing securely for reliable operation, and its design determines the type of insert bearing. Insert bearings use rolling elements (ball, cylindrical, spherical, barrel, needle, spindled, or tapered) to maintain the separation between moving parts to reduce rotational friction, and to support radial and axial loads. Available in a variety of materials and mounting configurations, mounted bearings can be one- or two-piece, they can have an extended inner ring and locking device, and they can have seals and end caps that retain lubrication and protect the working parts of the bearing from environmental debris. Mounted bearings support shafts in a variety of mounting configurations (flange block, hanger, pillow block, and take-up block), and are used in a range of applications from light duty shaft guidance on conveyors to road building equipment and crushers.
