Pillow Block Bearings

Pillow block bearings mount and supports a rotating shaft in a housing, typically made of cast iron or cast steel. The pillow block housing keeps the bearings in place for reliable and consistent performance. Flange bearings provide support for rotating shafts that run perpendicular to the bearing mount, and are available in 4-bolt or 2-bolt mountings.

A pillow block (or plummer block) is a pedestal used to provide support for a rotating shaft with the help of compatible bearings & various accessories. Housing material for a pillow block is typically made of cast iron or cast steel.
A pillow block usually refers to a housing with an included anti-friction bearing. A pillow block refers to any mounted bearing wherein the mounted shaft is in a parallel plane to the mounting surface, and perpendicular to the center line of the mounting holes, as contrasted with various types of flange blocks or flange units. A pillow block may contain a bearing with one of several types of rolling elements, including ball, cylindrical roller, spherical roller, tapered roller, or metallic or synthetic bushing. The type of rolling element defines the type of pillow block. These differ from "plummer blocks" which are bearing housings supplied without any bearings and are usually meant for higher load ratings and a separately installed bearing.
