How to choose this product
The bearing for ships consists of one or more elements supporting the propeller shaft while allowing it to turn with minimum friction.
Bearings can be mounted both within and outside the hull. Their primary function is to support the propeller shaft or shafting line.
Bearings for ships are composed of a series of rings designed to reduce friction as the propeller shaft rotates within them. They must be lubricated constantly and be well-maintained to minimize power loss in the shaft.
