EBL split plummer block bearing units
Stainless 316 split plummer block bearing units designed for corrosion resistance and hars envorimental
Bearing plummer block made of 316 stainless steel
Now Extreme Bearing engineers have created a new corrosion-resistant generation of stainless steel plummer block bearing housings manufactured with AISI 316 grade steel, high machining accuracy and a number of new features that improve the serviceability of these robust units.
Stainless steel plummer block for better corrosion protection
EBL housings are well protected from corrosion. They are made of 316 stainless steel, which gives them superior corrosion-resistance in harsh environments and extreme applications to any other conventional split bearing housing on the market.
A modular design concept for a wide range of options
Like SNL housings, EBL plummer block housings are split housings consisting of a cap and base. They have two holes as standard cast into the base for attachment bolts.
The housings are based on a modular design concept to enable a wider choice of bearings and seals as well as a variety of bearing/shaft combinations and lubrication methods.This stainless steel split plummer block design allows for easy mounting and dismounting of pre-assembled shafts.
High quality seals
An important advantage of Extreme Bearing plummer block housings is that they can be fitted with different seal types. Double-lip seals are made of polyurethane, a wear-resistant material which has good elastic properties. The seals are split so that they are easy to fit. Extreme Bearing offers a range of sealing options including oil seals, labyrinth seals or heavy-duty face to face seals. Case end covers are available.
EBL Plummer block housings are supplied with spacer rings in order to provide axial location. These can be omitted for “free end” axial front.
- Food processing
- Material handling
- Fluid machinery
- Package machinery.
EBL housings can be used to replace common plummer block housings. In general, the same procedures and functionality (with regard to housing variants, sealing solutions, system design, lubrication, mounting, condition monitoring and accessories) apply to the EBL housings as to common cast iron housings.
The Stainless steel Extreme Bearing unit is interchangeable with most known brands of housing and can therefore be used in existing machinery.
Grease escape hole with non-return valve
As standard, the excess grease escape hole is fitted with a non-return valve. This ensures that if the machine where the plummer block is mounted is cleaned by high-pressure jets, no water can penetrate into the bearing unit.
As an option, the excess grease escape hole can be equipped with a thread so that a hose can be mounted
to collect the excess grease or for continuous oil flow lubrication.
The solid stainless steel base
The new, optimized design of the plummer block housings, together with their superior grade of steel, make them more robust compared to conventional split housings. In addition, the load ratings are higher in some directions. With a solid base and solid material around the holes for the attachment bolts, EBL housings are more robust than their predecessors.
Excellent heat dissipation
The solid stainless steel base makes for a large contact area between the base and support surface. This reduces operating temperatures and increases the service life of the bearings, seals and lubricant.
Polished bearing units available on request
For high-end solutions with high demands on hygiene, we can also supply mirror-like polished plummer blocks. In fact, we can supply all our bearing units with this kind of finish on request.
