Fitted to over 2000 ships, Thordon seawater lubricated propeller shaft bearing systems eliminate leakage from stern tubes, provide excellent operational and wear performance, and offer low operational and maintenance costs. Water lubricated bearings eliminate the aft seal and the need for storage, sampling, and disposal of oil.
