AHTS Stern Roller Bearings and Seals


Stern roller
SXL Stern Roller Thrust Washers

AHTS vessels do the tough job of setting anchors for drilling rigs, as well as towing mobile drilling rigs and equipment from one location to another.The AHTS stern rollers and seals operate in harsh sea conditions, under high bearing loading, while demanding low maintenance and grease free operation. Thordon provides a reliable and cost effective solution to the traditional metallic or phenolic bearings that require constant maintenance.

  • Able to withstand shock loading and fatigue
  • Abrasive resistance
  • Less rigid - it can deflect slightly
  • Allows better load distribution over the bearing surface

    Capital expenditure is always a key consideration during the system procurement process but when low cost components result in an increase in unbudgeted operational costs, then any savings quickly diminish. That was the experience of Saudi Arabia-based ship operator Hadi Hamad Al-Hammam when the original shaft seals fitted to Hadi 37, a 2013-built twin-screw offshore tug supply vessel (OTSV), began to leak and vibrate, resulting in regular visits to drydock for costly repairs.
