Improve Ship Bearing Performance Orkot® Marine Bearings

An updated manual details the latest developments in marine bearing technology, aiding in design and specification for shipbuilding and repair. 

Orkot® is the brand name of a range of proprietary composite bearing materials consisting of a matrix of fabric-reinforced polymers from Trelleborg Sealing Solutions. For over 60 years, Orkot® bearings have been used in industrial, offshore, oil & gas and shipbuilding applications. 

They incorporate solid lubricants for dry running to ensure outstanding wear life. Virtually no swell in sea water and a very low thermal expansion coefficient provide dimensional stability in either arctic or tropical seas. They do not corrode or promote corrosion of the housing. 

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions is set up to meet the urgent demands of modern ship repair. Orkot® TLM Marine tubes can be shipped the same day and are stocked worldwide by local distributors in the major ship repair centers. Modern, well-equipped facilities can manufacture specific sizes of raw material in both tube and sheet form for dispatch within 24 hours and can supply a full range of finished machined products quickly and economically.
