Housed bearings support your bearings and hold in the lubricant whilst protecting them from contaminants. They are often made from cast iron or stainless steel and are available in various sizes.

Spherical roller bearings and tapered roller bearings are commonly used with housed bearing units as they are suited to general industrial applications; they can manage high loads and low speeds.

Housed bearings are suitable for contaminant filled environments and have anti-corrosion finishes. Other benefits of bearing housings include:

  • Easy to fit and replace
  • Low maintenance 
  • Maximise performance
  • Self-lubricating
  • Durable
  • Long lasting
  • Can handle misalignment
  • Condition monitoring options

Housed bearings are often used in fabricated machinery, more specifically:

  • Conveyor belt rollers
  • Belt drives connecting motors and pumps
  • Fabricated equipment
  • Ventilation systems

They are applied in agricultural settings and used in construction, food packaging and processing equipment.
