Polymer Bearing Failures: How Many Excuses Are You Willing to Accept?

  1. It’s The Water Temperature
  2. It’s The Water Condition/Silty
  3. It’s The Marine Growth
  4. It’s The Shaft Quality
  5. It’s The Air Entrainment

A simple and cost-effective way to address ongoing premature failure, degradation and performance problems in polymers is shifting to lignum vitae bearings and seals.

The no-excuse solution lignum vitae is inherently able to adapt to extreme and dynamic operating environments:

  • Zero Clearance
  • Run of river water, No Filtering*
  • Zero Wiping or Smearing of Material
  • High Resistance to Shock, Edge Loading/Vibration issues
  • Low Coefficient of Friction
  • Oil/Grease-Free Operation
  • No Hydrolysis Degradation/perfect memory
  • Conforms to Worn Shafts
  • Only industrial Renewable Bearing
  • Mixed-mode of Lubrication/Dry Start & Hydrodynamic
  • First water-lubricated bearing – 1854, the same for centuries

Our team of engineers and specialists collaborates with plant operators to understand their unique challenges to design long-term solutions made with lignum vitae. Contact us to see how the Lignum Vitae North America personalized approach can lead to the superior solution for your needs.
