Plummer Block Housing and Housing Units
Plummer block housings are usually mounted upright on a mounting surface. The housings are either integrally mounted with a special ball bearing insert or twin-piece mounted with standard self-aligning ball bearings or spherical roller bearings. Due to the spherical design of the bearing outer ring or through the use of self-aligning ball bearings or spherical roller bearings, they have the ability to compensate for misalignment. Plummer block housings are available in a variety of materials -cast iron or ductile iron, painted or coated, sheet steel, cast stainless steel or plastic.
