Shaft Bearings

Shaft Bearings

Our Drive Force range of water lubricated shaft bearings, which include:

Naval Brass cased shaft bearings
GRP cased shaft bearings (non metallic)
Special shaft bearings for Beneteau & Jeanneau yachts

Water lubricated shaft bearings are available, made from a synthetic nitrile rubber inner with a naval brass case or GRP case. These traditional bearings are suitable for most general purpose marine applications. Beneteau and Jeanneau shaft bearings consist of a rubber sleeve with a collar at one end with no outer casing.

Modern materials and advances in cathodic protection have enabled boat builders to select the bearing material most suited to the application. Most bearing inner liners are made of tough synthetic nitrile rubber for best all round performance. Vetus shaft bearings are lined with polyurethane rubber. Other materials are available to order. A new brass shell shaft bearing should have a clearance of 0.15mm per 25mm of shaft (0.006" per 1" of shaft). The casing of GRP shaft bearings or composite cased shaft bearings will not swell.
