Explore Ingot’s selection of stern tube bearings, which includes the durable and lightweight Phenolic, as well as the robust Naval Brass options. Choosing the right stern tube or rudder tube bearings for your yacht’s propulsion system is crucial to ensure it runs smoothly. Both Brass and Phenolic marine bearings provide support to the propeller shaft and help reduce friction and wear in various ship components, such as rudder tubes, propeller shafts, and p-brackets.
Naval brass bearings are preferred in marine environments as they are corrosion-resistant and suitable for salt or fresh water. The outer brass casing is durable and polished for precision fitment. Internally reinforced nitrile rubber offers excellent resistance to wear, abrasion, and chemicals, making them ideal for harsh marine conditions. The fluting allows water to lubricate and cool while flushing particles to prevent scratching or pitting.
Phenolic bearings are an optimal choice for marine applications because of their exceptional durability and affordability. They are the perfect fit for aluminum boats since they are impervious to corrosion and electrolysis.
