 The “Lube for Life” self-lubricating linear-bearing pillow blocks eliminate lubrication systems and provide continuous bearing lubrication and protection. Available for open or closed pillow block assemblies, Lube for Life is now an option for the company’s Super Ball Bushing Bearings and Super Smart Ball Bushing Bearings.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.Thomson, 1500 Mittel Blvd., Wood Dale, IL 60191, (540) 633-3549, www.thomsonlinear.com
