SAW split pillow (plummer) block housings are designed to accommodate the higher capacity 232 series spherical roller bearings. They can also be used with 222 series bearings to allow for greater axial travel or thermal shaft expansion.
SAW blocks have the same basic mounting dimensions as their SAF counterparts but are about one inch wider to accommodate the wider bearing. Shaft sizes range from 37/16 in to 715/16 in in adapter mounting.
SAW blocks are available in four-bolt base only and are suitable for grease or oil lubrication.
LER/LOR triple ring seals are standard but, as with the SAF, other sealing options are available.
