Thordon COMPAC

  • low coefficient of friction (typically 0.08-0.15)
  • used in a range of "open" water lubricated propeller shaft bearing systems
  • to promote early formation of a hydrodynamic film between the shaft and bearing, the lower (loaded) portion of the bearing is smooth, while the upper half of the bearing incorporates grooves for flow of the water lubricant/coolant.
  • approved by all Classification Societies for 2:1 L/D ratios
