Duramax rubber-lined naval brass bearings adapt equally well to strut and stern tube mounts, and are often used effectively as rudder-stock and pintle bushings.
Bearing diameters are precision fitted - in accordance with U.S. Navy Buships clearances - to the designated shaft size with the correct clearance for efficient water lubrication
Duramax bearings possess inherent vibration-dampening qualities and are non-polluting
External brass shells are machined and polished to provide easy fitting
Specially formulated oil and chemical resistant nitrile rubber is securely bonded to the shell
Units with thin shells are available for the struts of small craft
Sleeve bearings are usually installed by light press-fitting and locked in place with cone-pointed set screws
Fisheries Supply also stocks heavy-duty bolt on Flanged Cutless Bearings for larger shaft diameters; please inquire
