Stern Tube Bearings

These are bearings that support the propeller shaft of a ship, which extends through the stern of the vessel and into the water. They are typically made of a material such as white/babbitt metal, and are designed to reduce friction and wear on the propeller shaft, as well as to prevent water from entering the ship’s hull. They are a critical component of a ship’s propulsion system and must be regularly maintained to ensure proper operation.
