No Need To Remove Shaft For Bearing Change With Duramax Demountable Bearings

Easily replaceable, demountable rubber stave bearings are now available from the Duramax Marine Division of The Johnson Rubber Company.

The individual staves of Duramax demountable bearings can be assembled or replaced without shaft withdrawal. These keystone-sided, molded rubber staves slide into place without hindrance and can be removed as easily. Shipbuilders and owners will benefit from this time saving feature since Duramax demountable bearings can cut the cost of bearing inspection and replacement by about one-half.

Other bearings Duramax offers include metal backed stave bearings, with individually replaceable staves to support extreme shaft loads, and Duramax sleeve and flanged bearings, which feature specially formulated nitrile rubber securely bonded to metallic or nonmetallic shells.
