Water lubricated bearings require a steady flow of water to act as cooling agent for the bearing material. Heat is generated in lubrication states where there is a degree of contact between shaft and bearing. This heat needs to be evacuated to avoid heat build-up above the bearing materials temperature limit
The hydro cyclone’s performance and efficiency have been thoroughly tested and verified under a range of operational conditions. The hydro cyclone removes sand and silt particles of sizes that can reduce the bearing wear-life and allow the bearings to be flushed with clean (sea)water.
The hydro cyclone’s design is made with emphasis on robustness and material selections to prevent all types of corrosion issues.
A Norden Marine Bearings Hydro Cyclone will ensure a clean supply of water and last the vessels lifetime!
