Propeller Shaft Bearings

 

 

COMPAC

Thordon COMPAC is a high performance water lubricated bearing system primarily for “blue water” operating conditions. Specially formulated with a low coefficient of friction to reduce startup friction and eliminate stick-slip,

SXL

Thordon SXL offers a lower coefficient of friction for reduced break-away torque and smoother operation at lower shaft RPM, increased resistance to third particle abrasive wear and improved wear life compared to XL. 

 

 

XL

Our traditional standard propeller shaft bearing grade, Thordon XL is a general purpose bearing offering superior performance compared to other bearings commonly used in propeller shaft applications. XL provides good balance between long wear life, low coefficient of friction, reasonable abrasion resistance and cost effectiveness. 
 
RIVERTOUGH

RiverTough

Thordon RiverTough propeller shaft bearings operating in combination with hard coated nickel-chrome-boron sleeves are specially formulated to provide superior wear life in very abrasive water conditions and have proven their ability to last at least twice as long as rubber bearings.  

 

thorshield

ThorShield

Thordon's ThorShield propeller shaft coating system provides corrosion protection against seawater. This toughened, 2-part epoxy coating is up to nine times more flexible than existing shaft coating products.
WATER

Water Quality Package

The Thordon Water Quality Package is designed to supply seawater to the propeller shaft bearings for lubrication and cooling while also removing suspended solids from the seawater.

 

SEATHIGOR

SeaThior

The Thordon SeaThigor Seal is a mechanical face seal for 300mm (11.8") to 750mm (29.5") water lubricated propeller shafts found in yachts, cruise ships, merchant ships and naval vessels. The SeaThigor has evolved from a design first tested in 2003 and improved during the next decade.
 

“Spills always come at times when you do not need them, and they must be resolved as soon as possible. Prior to the switch to these seawater lubricated bearings, Flinter, like others, had been fined for oil pollution, especially in U.S. ports.”
