Wärtsilä Rudder & Stabilizer Bearings
Wärtsilä Steersafe is a range of composite bearings developed specifically for rudder and stabilizer applications. Years of research and testing has resulted in the extensive use of Wärtsilä bearings in rudder and steering gear on vessels of all classes.
Wärtsilä Steersafe offers excellent performance in applications where oil, grease, water or dry running may be required. Also the risk of bearing failure during service is reduced, since extreme hot or cold environments will not affect operation. In addition, design and machining is simplified, as calculations to compensate for varying workshop temperatures are not necessary. A variety of different supply options is available to suit the specific application.
