Orkot® Hydro Bearings Products

Determining the proper solution for a Genuine Orkot Hydro Bearing application requires expertise in many areas. Our seasoned engineers are able to provide the specialized expertise you need to balance all of your requirements - operating performance, service life, cost and logistics.

TLMM Hydro Bearings
Products made from Trelleborg Sealing Solutions composite materials have exceptional wear resistance and virtually no swell in water, providing dimensional stability. They offer tolerance to edge loading and mis-alignment even with the heaviest loads, and are particularly suited to freeze fitting without the danger of shattering. Orkot® TLMM is the standard grade of material incorporating a woven fabric reinforcement and solid lubricants within a thermosetting resin matrix. The material can be used in conjunction with water and grease lubrication and can be run dry for limited periods.

TXMM Hydro Bearings
Orkot® TXMM Hydro is a further development of Orkot® TLMM Marine, utilizing a specialized bearing surface to extend its dry running capabilities and reduce friction and wear rates. It can also be used with grease and water lubrication.
