Non-split plummer block housings and take-up housings, SBD and THD series

SBD plummer (pillow) block housings and THD take-up housings are non-split housings designed to accommodate heavy loads acting in different directions. These types of loads are typically encountered in conveyors, roller beds and crushers. Highly reliable bearing arrangements can be designed using SBD or THD housings together with SKF Explorer bearings. In conveyors, SBD and THD housings are often used together.
