Suitable bearings are required in stern tube and rudder tube assemblies. A quality bearing can ensure the appropriate life cycle of the parts is achieved. CJR offers a range of bearings from bespoke designs made in-house to standard off the shelf sizes.
The products that we can supply include brass shell nitrale inner, phenolic, composite, polyacetal and UHMW. Our bearing systems are most commonly water lubricated but grease lubricated is also an option when a unit must be sealed due to excessive wear more often found with workboats function in waters containing high levels of debris.
Standard bearings can be screw cut and fitted with flanges if a retaining plate feature is required. Bearings can be standard parts or sourced and supplied as approved products to suit class requirements.
