Split plummer block housings SNV

German Excellence, Now Made in India

The latest innovation in our product development is the SNV Housing.

Born in Germany, Schaeffler India brings in FAG SNV housings made in India. Customers can now get German quality out of Indian production at a competitive cost.

Designed as per modular system, manufactured at a precision facility, these housings deliver premium performance. Perfection across geometric parameters during machining process ensures perfect mounting of bearing and shaft in all applications.

The Tougher, Smarter & Efficient Choice
  • Longer rolling bearing life due to accurate mounting
  • Easy interchangeability owing to dimensional adherence to market standards
  • Reduced maintenance and fewer down times
  • Simplified stockholding due to modular concept
  • Very high load support for bearing housing units
  • Optimized for fitting condition monitoring and re-lubrication systems
  • Double lip seals, labyrinth seals, felt seals, V ring seals, combined seals or special seals can be used for additional Protection

Wide Applications
Designed to be Superior
Wide Applications

Split FAG plummer block housings SNV and the associated bearings form bearing arrangement units that can be matched, through the appropriate selection of accessories, to a wide range of applications. Applications include agricultural machinery, the paper processing industry, mining, materials processing, the steel industry and power stations.

Modular Concept

The housings are designed in accordance with a modular concept. Each housing can be fitted with rolling bearings of various diameter and width series if they have the correct outside diameter for the housing.

Depending on their design, the bearings can be located either directly on the shaft or by means of an adapter sleeve. This gives different shaft diameters for the same bearing size. The spacing between the shaft and housing body are compensated by means of appropriately matched seals.

Quick to Mount

A technician requires approximately 8 to 20 minutes to drill just one of the center-punched lubrication holes. And he carries out the same procedure 10 or 100 times, depending on the application. You can quickly calculate how much working time can be saved by using the new SNV housings from FAG. Because they are predrilled!

The new split plummer block housings SNV052-F to SNV340-F are particularly easy to fit and maintain. As a result, it is no longer necessary to use special housing designs in many standard applications.

Easy to Lubricate

Lubrication is made considerably simpler by the presence of two threaded holes for grease lubrication and one threaded hole for grease outlet that are sealed with screw plugs during manufacture.

The new grease outlet hole provided as standard on the bottom edge of the housing is an inconspicuous design change that can quickly secure a competitive advantage. Excess grease can escape from the bottom of the housing if excess pressure occurs and the bearing cannot be over greased. Furthermore, there is an additional lubrication hole that allows easier re-lubrication of, for example, ball bearings.

20 to 160 mm 3/4 to 5 1/2 inch
Split plummer block housings of the series SNV are available for shaft diameters 20 mm to 160 mm and ¾ inches to 5 ½ inches
Dimensions and Interchangeability

The dimensions of the housings SNV correspond to ISO 113 and DIN 736 to DIN 739. The housings SNV are interchangeable with the existing housings SN and SNE.

Suitable Bearings

Split plummer block housings SNV are suitable for fitting with spherical roller bearings, barrel roller bearings and self-aligning ball bearings with a tapered or cylindrical bore as well as deep groove ball bearings, see table. The range of shaft diameters is 20 mm to 160 mm and 3/4 inch to 5 1/2 inch.
