Timken’s expansion units – with a pillow-block design – can be used where thermal expansion of the shaft is present. These units are available with full-width, eccentric-locking bearing inserts. Our heavy-duty series bearings have loose internal clearance.

Design Attributes

  • Self-aligning ring allows initial alignment with shaft and axial float during operation.
  • Popular sizes come complete with a spacer ring to make unit “fixed” or “float” side.
  • Enclosed units include oil-tight seals to allow oil or grease lubrication.

Applications

  • Cooling towers
  • Textile processing
  • Material handling
