Making bearing conversions easy

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Cooper Bearings has introduced the SNQ pedestal, a range of plummer blocks for split roller bearings. The angled SNQ pedestal is claimed to simplify the fitting of bearing units as the angled joint allows the pedestal to be slid under the shaft without the need for tools and is available across the standard range of SN and SD equivalent pedestal housings.

Besides the SNQ range, Cooper offers pedestal ranges that allow direct replacement of SN, SD, and SAF pillow block units. The combination of same base to centre heights, distance between bolt holes, and angled pedestal means changing from a problematic non-split spherical roller bearing and plummer block assembly is simple.

Besides pedestals and housings, Cooper’s full range of split roller bearings includes standard bearings such as cylindrical roller bearings and tapered roller bearings as well as special bearings including water-cooled bearings, flat thrust bearings, other solid bearings, high speed bearings, full row bearings and other special types, and large bearings over 600mm bore size.

Typical applications include marine propulsion, conveyors, fans and blowers, cooling beds, continuous casters, stacker reclaimers, and many other applications, especially where bearings are in trapped positions and access is limited.
