Simplex Intermediate shaft bearings

The operational efficiency of a machine or plant is determined by, above all, the quality of the bearings used in all rotating applications. This applies in particular to the line-shafting of ship propulsion plants. The Simplex bearings were developed especially for this purpose as short, plain bearings. More than 21,000 have left our works to date.

Simplex bearings are characterized by a short shell length. Moreover, they can be precisely aligned to avoid edge loading. The running properties of the bearing metal have been optimized with a technically highly advanced bonding of bearing metal and shell. The vital lubrication of the bearing is safeguarded in the Simplex bearing at all times, even at low shaft speeds. Temperature sensing and monitoring systems are also supplied. Cooling systems are available for unfavourable operating conditions.
