Thomson's Lube for Life linear bearing pillow blocks maximize bearing life and offer maintenance-free operation
Thomson introduces “Lube for Life” self-lubricating linear bearing pillow blocks. Lube for Life assemblies eliminate the need for expensive lubrication systems, provide continuous bearing lubrication and enhance protection for maximum linear bearing life and maintenance-free operation. Available for open or closed pillow block assemblies, Lube for Life can now be ordered as an option with Thomson Super Ball Bushing Bearing and Super Smart Ball Bushing Bearing Pillow Blocks. They come as a complete assembly for new applications or in a retrofit kit for existing, non self-lubricating pillow block assemblies.
Lube for Life pillow blocks work through self-lubricating cartridges pressed into each end of the pillow block housing, with the linear bearing itself initially lubricated with EP2 grease. The Lube for Life polymer is under constant pressure against the 60 Case shafting, ensuring a film of lubricant is always present between the ball bearings and the inner race.
