Thordon propeller shaft bearings are available in four different grades and multiple configurations to offer the optimal bearing solution for each owner’s specific application and technical requirements. Open seawater lubricated bearing options include Thordon COMPAC, RiverTough, SXL, and XL.
With over 35 years of experience, Thordon has solid references in over 2,000 marine propeller shaft bearing applications. Whether your bearing needs are for repair, conversion, or newbuild, Thordon propeller shaft bearings and bearing systems deliver proven, reliable, cost-effective performance.
Manufactured for long wear life and reduced maintenance costs, TG100’s elastomeric bellows accept both axial and radial shaft movement and compensate for alignment issues. Its unique emergency seal allows stand-alone operation to get you back to port safely, without damaging the seal. The wedge “lock” design ensure the rotary face is perfectly square to the shaft.
A flow alarm is incorporated to alert the operator to any low water flow condition to the bearings. The Thordon Water Quality Package is designed to operate on a stand-alone basis or can be fully integrated into the ship’s control and monitoring systems to allow operation in an unmanned machinery space.
Thordon offers three Water Quality Packages in configurations designed to deliver flow to suit a wide range of shaft sizes and provide an appropriate degree of redundancy for the vessel involved. Thordon can, if required, work with integrators, designers and builders to meet special needs for specific installations.
