Thrust Bearings

Rubber Design has developed a compact range of thrust blocks ( o r trust bearings ) in combination with their flexible marine couplings for high performance operation in ships and yachts. The advantage of using a thrust block is that the propeller thrust load is not taken by the engine-gearbox, this enables an optimized flexible mounting system of engine-gearbox to be used. This gives the best results for vibration isolation and reduction of structure borne noise from engine-gearbox to the foundation ( hull of the ship ) .
