The Solution® line of severe service bearings now includes Type E bearings. These units have high load capacity and the same dimensional footprint of industry-standard Type E tapered roller bearings, along with the advantages of being fully non-corrosive and completely grease-less. The product is constructed with a 304 stainless housing, a Poly-Sphere® plane bearing that is made from a high performance polymer, plus a 316 stainless locking sleeve. Plane bearings work without rolling elements, so grease is unnecessary and seals are eliminated. The product is available in one-piece or split styles of pillow blocks, four bolts and piloted housings for shaft sizes from 1-3/16” to 5”.
