Features and benefits
SONL plummer block housings have the following features and benefits:
Simple mountingTo simplify mounting and make alignment more accurate, lines indicating the centre of the bearing seat and housing bore axis are cast into the housing base. Dimples indicate the position for dowel pins (fig. 1).
Deep sump for lower operating temperatures
SONL housings have a deep sump that holds a large volume of oil so that heat can be dissipated effectively (fig. 2). This cooling effect extends the service life of both the lubricant and the bearing.
Strong, stiff and simple design
The simple, sturdy design of SONL housings provides maximum support and reduces the risk of deforming the cap or base during installation. Dowel pins between the cap and base are off-centre so that the cap can only be installed one way.
Comprehensive seal kits
In addition to the seals, seal kits for SONL housings are supplied standard with (fig. 3):
- an oil level gauge that makes it easy to visually check the level and condition of the oil
- a magnetic plug that screws into one of the four tapped holes in the housing base. This plug attracts metal particles, extending the service life of the lubricant and bearing.
