Marine Bearings



Making history for 165 years in the fastest, most powerful ships and submarines in maritime history while eliminating current EPA compliance issues.

Recent EPA rulings for accidental oil spills is leading conversions back to water lubricated solutions. Lignum-Vitae is the only water lubricated technology that can operate at a zero clearance to replace all oiled and composite bearing types. Converting to Lignum-Vitae will eliminate all potential EPA or DEQ lawsuits and fines for accidental spills along with lower insurance rates from reduced liability. We can engineer existing oiled equipment back to a water lubricated system and avoid all future threat of oil spills.

Lignum-Vitae Bearings are Water Lubricated – Eliminates EPA Issues

Lignum Vitae Water Lubricated bearings commonly replace composite, plastic, bronze, babbitt and oil filmed bearings. The material is the oldest bearing in service with unmatched longevity in water applications. It has tremendous load bearing qualities and unique shock absorbing qualities that no other material can match.  This material has successfully returned to the Hydro Power market and now will return to the Marine market.
