Thordon Bearings Inc.

Charting a New Course with Seawater Lubricated Propeller Shafts

Thordon Bearings designs and manufactures a complete range of bearing and seal systems for ships, including propeller shaft bearings, rudder bearings, deck equipment bearings and shaft seals that eliminate oil and grease.

Did you know that over 95% of merchant marine vessels operate with an oil lubricated propulsion system? Unfortunately, 60 million litres of operational oil are discharged from these oil lubricated systems every single year. Thordon’s products are produced using proprietary polymer materials that are lubricated with water, or self-lubricated, therefore eliminating oil or grease usage, meaning ZERO risk of oil pollution to our oceans and waterways and are proven, cost effective, environmentally sustainable solutions.  A short video will explain this here.

Unlike many publicly traded and larger private companies, the motivation behind the on-going growth and success of Thordon Bearings has not been to enhance shareholder returns, but instead has been to provide a contribution to society in the form of superior products, valued employment, and technological advances that better the environment we live in. At Thordon, we strongly believe we should all play a role in protecting our oceans and seas for future generations.
