Pillow Blocks & Flanges – Baldor-Dodge of ABB

Dodge Imperial spherical roller bearings—the only high-capacity double-row spherical roller bearings with an effective easy-on, easy-off adapter mounting and removal system. Not only does this patented system provide a concentric grip for superior holding on the shaft, but it reduces the fretting corrosion caused by traditional setscrews and vibration.

Combine these features with our Imperial bearings’ superior sealing systems and compact one-piece, industry-standard dimensioned housings, and you have a family of mounted roller bearings which lives up to its name.


An ineffective seal can allow contaminants to enter a bearing, which can cause failure. However, with Imperial bearing inserts, there are two exclusive seals for maximum sealing protection. Our proven Trident seals are extremely effective for dirty environments, low-to-medium speeds, and normal ambient conditions. Made of nitrile material, this triple-lip rubbing seal has a low coefficient of friction, and its seal land maintains full seal contact even when misaligned.

For high speeds and harsher ambient conditions, the Imperial inserts offer labyrinth seals with corrosion- resistant flingers and clearance steel seal carriers.
