Statewide Bearings are leading suppliers of bearing housings Australia-wide. Our extensive product suite includes all different types of bearing housings, suitable for a broad range of applications.

What Are Bearing Housings?

Engineered bearing housings are specific modular assemblies with multiple benefits. They’re designed to make bearings and shafts easier to install, protecting bearings, extending their operating life, and improving the maintenance process.

Statewide Bearings is a leading supplier of bearing housings in Australia, which are suitable for a broad range of applications. Our extensive product range includes pillow block, split housing types, non-locating/locating designs and more. Standard bearing housings are made from grey cast iron, with stainless steel, spheroidal graphite cast iron (SGI), and cast steel housings are available. Depending on the operating conditions, contact seals, non-contact seals and combinations thereof are also available for sealing of bearing housings.

Pillow Block Bearing Housings

Pillow block bearing housings, also known as bearing blocks, are assemblies that combine radial ball bearings with housings made from high-quality materials such as cast iron or pressed steel. These housings come in various shapes, and their design typically includes spherical surfaces on the outer bearing and the internal housing to allow for self-alignment. Pillow block designs often feature a double-seal arrangement with oil-resistant synthetic rubber seals and slingers on both sides of the bearing to provide effective protection against contaminants.

Split Housings

Split housing is a versatile range of designs primarily designed for spherical, self-aligning ball, and barrel roller-type bearings. These housings offer multiple sealing options and are available in various material specifications. We can even provide housings that meet the sealing specifications of BHP and Rio Tinto, or collaborate with you to develop a custom solution tailored to specific operating conditions.

Locating or Non-Locating Bearing Housings

The bearing seats in the housing are generally machined such that the bearings are movable and can thus act as non-locating bearings. Locating bearing arrangements can be achieved by inserting locating rings. Locating rings must be ordered specifically. Bearing housings without locating rings are supplied in either a non-locating bearing version or a locating bearing version.
