Cooper has worked long and successfully with OEMs and companies operating in marine environments.
From offshore support vessels to ferries, military vessels, fishing boats and tugs, Cooper split bearings provide the reliability and flexibility crucial in extreme working conditions out at sea - and a long way from support.
Whatever your marine application, Cooper split bearings will give you:
Cooper split bearings are offered in a variety of series, all of which have a powerful part to play in maritime operations. Follow the links for more detailed information.
Compact and lightweight, the 100 series is designed for high speeds and light loads.
Robust units that can handle the majority of propulsion shaft load and speed conditions.
A rugged bearing for heavier loads, frequently found in the ‘locating’ bearing position and on heavier shafting.
Designed to handle the kind of extreme loading conditions experienced, for example, by icebreakers. The 03 series is extra heavy duty.
Marine shafts often have to cope with high transient axial loading caused by temperature gradients, hull movements or reactions in couplings. These medium angle split tapered bearings feature two rows of opposed rollers that can handle axial loading from either direction. It is a good choice for handling thrust in powertrains.
Cooper tapered and cylindrical bearings are usually housed in a cartridge that can swivel within the bearing housing to cope with considerable shaft misalignment without compromising the seal.
We are proud to hold the Lloyds Type Approval for split cylindrical roller bearings, housings and seals – 100, 01 & 02 series, BCP (pillow block units), & BCF (flanged units) 35 mm to 600 mm bore size for main and auxiliary machinery.
We work closely with other recognized marine inspectorates. We are also ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 rated.
