Defining and Predicting Housing Strength for Mounted Bearings - February 2017

The Timken Company

The article "Defining and Predicting Housing Strength for Mounted Bearings" appeared in the February 2017 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

Summary
Design engineers across industries rely on pillow block bearings for a variety of tough and unconventional applications. Having access to data that backs housing strength performance claims is an integral part of choosing the right bearing to keep operations running optimally. What design considerations must be made when the application demands a pillow block installation on a non-horizontal orientation? What happens when bearing load is not applied through the base of the unit? Timken answers these questions with physical testing, advanced modeling and real-world experience to facilitate the selection of pillow block bearings for specific applications.
