EXC compact stainless steel 316 pillow block bearings

316 stainless steel tapped base pillow block bearing

These pillow block bearings can be secured vertically or horizontally to support rotating shafts. In comparison to the EXS washdown pillow block bearing, this design is more compact and therefore more suitable in tight spaces.
The housing is made of stainless steel (grade 316) which is rustproof and resistant to corrosion from seawater. It is also resistant to all cleaning products and chemicals. The rounded corners and smooth surfaces make these units very easy to clean.
The units are delivered complete with a spherical roller bearing insert that enables the stainless steel pillow block bearings to carry up to five times more load than conventional bearings. Spherical roller bearings have the advantage that they provide a much larger load capacity than ball bearings and can accommodate axial force.
Many sealing options are possible. Each possesses different properties depending on the application. We would be pleased to advise you on the best choice of seal.

Atention !

When you are looking for a bearing block to replace, you should pay attention that there are 2 pitce sizes of the mounting holes on the market. You can see these sizes in the table below Type EXC and Type EXR

If you want to use this type of stainless steel bearing block in a new installation, we recommend that you use a type EXC because it is more standard and we keep more stock of it.


EXC is a bearing block whose mounting pitch corresponds to the skf bearing blocks SYF..TF


EXCR is a bearing block whose mounting pitch corresponds to the INA bearing blocks PSHE..-N

Load directions for Extreme Bearings

Extreme pillow block bearings are intended for loads acting vertically towards the base plate support. Therefore, if the bearing housing is supported over its entire base, loads are limited only by the load limits of the bearing insert. If loads acting in other directions occur or if the housing is not supported over its entire base area, check that the magnitude of the load is permissible for the bolt assembly attached to the machine frame.
