Marine Propulsion Applications

Kingsbury bearings have been keeping the United States Navy fleet afloat for a full century. The reliability of our bearing systems for commercial or military marine applications, is unrivaled.

Kingsbury has a wide array of bearing configurations for marine propulsion systems. The shaft rotation speed for marine applications is much lower than that of turbomachinery equipment. Kingsbury's flooded style thrust bearings are the standard choice for these applications along with a sleeve type (fixed geometry) journal bearing.
