BLO Bearings

Heat treating custom fan


Robinson has been manufacturing high-quality fans and blowers since 1892. So naturally, we know a thing or two about the critical components. When performance and reliability demands increase, the need for robust bearings increases as well. That’s why we created Robinson BLO Bearings for high-speed fan applications.

BLO Bearing Features:

  • Two-bearing unit ensures precision alignment of bearing inserts
  • Includes two single-row, deep groove ball bearings (Alternate bearing combinations available upon request.)
  • Higher speed capabilities than separate pillow block housings
  • Ideal for fans and other overhung rotating equipment
  • Heavy cast iron construction
  • Oil lubrication
  • Shaft size ranges from 65 mm to 100 mm
  • Complete BLO line acquired from Dodge/Baldor/ABB
  • Manufactured in the USA

“Calpine cannot thank Robinson Fans enough for the upgrade AIG blower fans for our LM6000 Package – they have been nothing short of exceptional. Prior to installing the upgraded fan with the oil bath bearing, our service life on the bearings were very short lived (measured in weeks). They were very unreliable and costly to repair. Since we have installed the upgraded fans with the BLO bearing the only maintenance needed is to change the oil every six months and that’s it. If there are any doubts on whether the upgrade is worth the money give me a call because it is!”
