Lube oil unit for hydrostatic oil pressure support for bearings
The high pressure hydraulic pump provides the required hydrostatic oil pressure at the lubrication pockets of the bush and intermediate shaftline bearings. The combination of customised bearing design and directed oil pressure keeps the shaft floating in all bearings, even at very low speed or with frequent changes of the rotating direction, thus minimizing wear in the bearing.
- Sterntube bush bearing
- Intermediate shaft bearing
- Radial bearing of thrust bearing
