The free comprehensive new guide is designed for use by engineers in the workshop or in the field. Providing ‘at a glance’ reference for all aspects of plummer block maintenance, the A6-sized guide is designed to fit neatly into overall pockets, whilst its sturdy spiral bound construction and thick glossy pages ensure that it is built to last.
Extending to 78 pages, the guide includes sections on all aspects of bearing installation and maintenance.

Helpfully for the guide user, some of these sections are supported by step-by-step graphics illustrating best practice for the procedure concerned.
The sealing section in the pocket guide is particularly comprehensive as the SNN series offers the user five options, depending upon the level of severity of a particular application and its operating requirements, typically speed.
NSK’s SNN series of plumber blocks provides integrated benefits in general manufacturing industry, food processing, materials handling and agricultural applications. By providing units that are ready assembled to bolt into place, the SNN series enables designers to easily and economically solve specific bearing problems relating to component complexity, mounting, and also bearing maintenance and life in difficult environments.
