igubal® pillow block bearings
igubal® pillow block bearings are bearing units very easy to install and which are able to compensate alignment errors and prevent edge pressure.
The standard version consists of two parts made from iglidur® GLW, a material preferred in applications with static load, where only occasional movement takes place. Suitable for temperatures from -40 °C to +100 °C in long-term use.
A four-part version is also available upon request. It includes an additional lining made from different iglidur® materials for various applications.

|When to use it?|
- If chemical resistance is required
- If a cost-effective option is required
- If you need dirt-resistant bearings
- To adjust misalignments
|When not to use it?|
- If temperatures are higher than +100 °C
- If an integrated adjusting ring is required
- If diameters above 150 mm are required
- If rotation speeds higher than 0.5 m/s are required
Due to the fact that igubal® pillow block bearings are suitable for maintenance-free dry operation, they are worth considering in particular for applications where the installation site is difficult to access, in a humid or wet environment or when there are special hygiene demands. As a result, igubal® pillow block bearings are used for instance in wash-brush controls, in facade sunshade systems, in materials handling technology and in bakery equipment.
igubal® pillow block bearings are designed for mounting with two bolts. Exact alignment of the bearing housing is not necessary since the spherical bearing automatically compensates for alignment errors. Special adjusting rings can be used to fix the shaft.
