A patent application has been granted for the taper locking key design of Orkot® Marine Bearings’, part of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions in Rotherham, stern tube bearings manufactured in two material grades for commercial and naval vessels.

They have all major classification society approvals at 2:1 length to diameter ratio and can be used as conventional water lubricated stern tube bearings or as A bracket bearings for naval ships.
