Cartridge spherical seat diameters are common to the seats for Cooper cylindrical bearings, which means the bearing and cartridge unit can be fitted in a wide variety of existing housing designs. The two most commonly used are the pedestal (or pillow block) and flange.
Ductile iron pillow blocks and flanges are offered as standard with these bearings. Please confirm housing load capacities with our technical department before finalising designs.
Where bulkhead sealing is required, for example in marine propeller shafts, a specially adapted flange mounting is used. The flange incorporates additional sealing to the cartridge seating and may include sealing on the mounting face ('backface').
