Rubber Lined Cutless Bearings
SHAKTI RUBBERS bearings are lined with a proprietary formulation of Nitrile rubber perfected over decades of research and development. The rubber is extremely tough and resistant to swelling, as well as exposure to chemicals and oil. This Nitrile rubber compound is molded and bonded to a metal or non-metallic shell. The bond strength between the shell and Nitrile rubber lining is an industry-leading 235 PSI (16.5 Kg/sq. cm) SHAKTI RUBBERS bearings are used in the rudder, shaft, and stern gear applications for all types of submersible pump, vertical pump, marine vessels from naval ships, cargo/container ships, tankers, ocean liners, trawlers, and coastal fishing boats.
The inner groove design of SHAKTI RUBBERS bearings combined with rubber lining create a hydrodynamic lubricating film to separate the bearing surface and the shaft even at low shaft speeds. The unique shape of our bearing grooves is designed for maximum lubricating water flow and dissipation of heat. Abrasive grit is flushed out through these grooves, protecting the shaft as well as the bearings from damage. Our bearings cover a wide range of shell diameters from 25mm to 500mm. SHAKTI RUBBERS Cutless rubber bearings are made to the highest quality standards, in materials, workmanship, and dimensional accuracy. With continuing research and advancements in product technology, SHAKTI RUBBERS maintain critical parameters like Tensile strength, elongation, and bond strength. We have a specialty in brass cutless rubber bearings, flanged cutless bearings, split flanged bearings, only rubber bearings, suitable material for the bearings are Bronze, Leaded Gunmetal, Naval brass, Aluminum, SS 316, SS410, We also provide re-rubberizing/li services on used bearings. ( If metal shell dementia ok)
