ORKOT MARINE BEARINGS: Trelleborg United Kingdom

Orkot® Marine is a world leading manufacturer & supplier of bearings to the shipping & marine industries. The bearings are approved by all major marine classification societies.

Orkot® Marine Bearings are manufactured from a unique synthetic composition incorporating solid lubricants for dry running to ensure outstanding wear life. Virtually no swelling in sea water & very low thermal coefficient of expansion provide dimensional stability in arctic & tropical seas. They do not corrode or promote corrosion of the housing & tolerate both edge loading & misalignment.

Orkot® TLMM Marine

This is the standard of material incorporating woven fabric reinforcement & solid lubricants within a thermosetting resin matrix. The material can be used in conjunction with water & grease lubrication & can run dry for limited periods.

Orkot® TXM Marine

Is a further development of TLM Marine utilizing a specialized bearing surface to extend its dry running capabilities, which reduces friction & wear rates. It can also be used with grease & water lubrication.
