PHENOLIC BEARING 3/4″ – 1 7/8″
Phenolic non-metallic marine bearings; non-corrosive and anti-electrolytic. Applications: propeller shafts, stern tubes or skegs.
Phenolic Bearings 3/4″-1 7/8″
Manufactured from dense reinforced thermoset plastic, this range of phenolic non-metallic bearings suits applications where electrolysis is a problem through metal to metal contact.
Chemical and oil resistant, the nitrile rubber strips are shaped to form a hydrodynamic water wedge between the shaft and bearing, even at low speeds.
Water Lubricated Marine Bearings
Water being the perfect lubrication medium, it’s naturally abundant around marine vessels. It is non-compressible, cooling and has a low coefficient of friction when between bearing strip and propeller shaft.
Ingot Marine supplies a comprehensive range of standard non-metallic phenolic bearings. However bespoke sizes can be quoted for and manufactured upon request. Contact Us Today!
All water-lubricated non-metallic phenolic bearings will eventually experience wear in service. It is recommended that bearings should be inspected for wear whenever the vessel is hauled out for service.
Ingot Marine phenolic non-metallic bearings are designed to let abrasive particles pass over its surface and into the nitrile rubber grooves, where it is flushed out by the water feed pressure. This system prevents the particles from getting embedded into the bearing nitrile rubber surface, causing wear on the propeller shaft.
