Thordon bearings are specially formulated to provide superior wear life in very abrasive conditions, especially ideal for shallow dirty water applications, such as landing craft. Thordon has specifically developed RiverTough tailshaft bearings, SXL rudder bearings and TG100 shaft seals for the toughest operating environments with minimal maintenance.

  • Extended wear life
  • Lower Life Cycle Costs
  • Ease of bearing installation & removal
  • Reduced docking frequency
  • Low friction
  • High abrasion resistance

    Canada's Support for Canadian Manufacturer, Thordon Bearings: A Highly Successful Partnership

    Feb 25, 2020
    Thordon pursued the Halifax-class frigates throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s, only to lose out to rubber, the dominant naval bearing at the time. When the rubber bearings could not meet the HMCS Halifax’s demands during sea trials, the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) knew who to turn to. Thordon’s revolutionary COMPAC propeller shaft bearing design allowed for hydrodynamic operation at low shaft speeds and a low acoustic signature, passing sea trials very successfully. Thordon’s COMPAC tailshaft bearings went on to enjoy a 26-year wearlife run in the Halifax’s A-Brackets, three times the life of Thordon’s closest bearing competitor.
