On commercial fans and blowers, a large portion of the spherical roller bearings are mounted pillow blocks. Pillow blocks are convenient and offer an array of options to suit most applications. In general, pillow blocks come in two types: split housed solid housed.

The Model 1030, the newest addition to the Rexnord Smart Condition Monitoring System, has two distinctive features:  
  • It monitors oil quality along with temperature and vibration—the only such system for large gear drives.  
  • It’s universal. The Model 1030 can be fitted to nearly any gear drive with an oil port 3/4” or greater—typically on equipment with a 100 HP or larger motor.

One of the most common reasons for bearing failure in agricultural equipment is moisture ingression. This occurs because the equipment is typically used for a limited period of time each season, therefore, it can remain idle for up to nine months at a time.

In agriculture, the leading cause of bearing failure is improper or inadequate lubrication and contamination ingression. For applications such as tillers, planters, harvesters and other equipment where bearings are routinely subjected to (or submerged in) dirt, sand and other contaminants, proper lubrication is critical to bearing service life.

Agricultural equipment endures extremely dirty environments. Metallic sleeve bearings -- commonly used in pivoting (oscillating) applications – require external lubrication with grease or oil to function properly and efficiently. However, a film of oil on the shaft acts like a magnet for environmental dirt and other contaminants.

When it comes to dirt getting into bearings, the agriculture industry tops the chart. Whether you're plowing, harvesting, tilling or discing, the bearings in these applications experience some of the worst contamination possible. We all know that when the work begins, uptime is crucial, and nothing increases cost more than a piece of farm machinery that’s been sidelined during the peak season.
