A pillow block bearing, often referred to as a bearing housing or plummer block, is a pedestal that provides support for a rotating shaft with compatible bearings like ball or roller bearings. For the purpose of this blog, we will be referring to this kind of bearing as a bearing housing or plummer block to avoid confusion among the other bearing types. Plummer blocks serve as housings that have a bearing placed into them. They are typically mounted on a surface parallel and offset to the axis of the shaft, and they contain a stationary outer ring and rotating inner ring. Mounting holes at the base of the plummer block allow for easy mounting and modification.Additionally, these bearing housings are best suited for cleaner environments and are not meant to handle higher loads. While their application is fairly straightforward, it is important to know whether your system requires ball bearings or roller bearings. For this reason, this blog will outline how to choose the right bearing housing for your application.
