Orkot Marine Bearings are used throughout the marine industry in rudders, propeller shafts, deck machinery, stabilisers and hatch covers


Orkot is a synthetic fabric reinforced polymer incorporating solid lubricants specifically designed for demanding sea water conditions. Orkot® TLM Marine is an established material for use in most applications. It has approval from all the major classification societies for use as a rudder bearing with pressures up to 15NM/mm2 and 2/1 L/D ratio for propeller shaft bearings.

Orkot® TXM Marine has a very low coefficient of friction and is approved for wet and dry rudder bearing applications by most major classification societies. Orkot® TXM Marine is particularly suitable for use on water lubricated stern tube bearings running at very low shaft speeds and for submarine steering and dive plane bearings.

All the materials have virtually zero swell in water, high compressive and impact strength, low friction and the ability to be freeze fitted. Over 3000 vessels have been fitted with Orkot® bearings including, VLCCs, LNG carriers passenger ferries, bulk carriers, cruise ships, container vessels and naval ships and submarines.

We offer global stocks for the repair market and 24 hour turnaround on custom sizes. This is supported by an extensive network of distributors in key ship repair and shipbuilding locations.
