Plummer Blocks

Heavy Duty pedestal style Bearing Housings designed with split castings for easy Bearing installation and maintenance.

Plummer block housings are used with high-capacity spherical roller bearings or self-aligning ball bearings. They are manufactured from high-strength cast iron as standard but are also available in cast steel or spheroidal graphite cast iron. The housings have lubrication facilities and can be used with either oil or grease lubrication.
