EBL split plummer block bearing units
Split plummer block bearing made of 316 stainless steel
Extreme Bearing engineers have created a new corrosion-resistant generation of stainless steel plummer blocks. This generation EBL plummer block bearing housings are made of AISI 316 marine grade stainless steel, which makes them very suitable for application in the most difficult conditions and harsh environments!
Stainless steel plummer block for better protection against corrosion
EBL housings are well protected from corrosion. They are made of 316 stainless steel, which gives them superior corrosion-resistance in harsh environments. These bearing housings are much more suitable for extreme applications compared 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 a 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 wide range of sealing options including oil seals, labyrinth seals or heavy-duty face to face seals. Case end covers are also available.
EBL plummer block housings are supplied with spacer rings in order to provide axial location. These can be omitted for a “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 when 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. This creates the opportunity of a hose being mounted to collect the excess grease. Also, this can ensure the 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, makes 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 the 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.
