NORDEN Hatch cover bearing pads
Norden Maritime have over the years supplied a high number of hatch cover bearing pads for cargo vessels.
Our materials can be produced to suit any hatch cover bearing support arrangement. Below we have presented two examples utilizing respectively Norden 788 and Norden SL-4 pads.
Very low friction coefficient
Norden 788 exhibits the lowest coefficient of friction coupled with exceptionally low wear rates. During operation a very thin, but extremely strong lubricating film is deposited automatically over the complete moving surface. A typical dry sliding friction value of 8% against stainless steel, with no stick slip or noise generation, offer vessels a long term maintenance free service life.
High load composite bearing
Material Norden 788 is a high load composite bearing material made of specially manufactured synthetic fabric reinforcement using a composite construction process, which is impregnated with thermosetting resins. Solid lubricant fillers are added, which make it suitable for dry running applications.
Norden SL-4 self-lubricating bearing pad material uses a nickel aluminium bronze alloys as base material. Together with the PTFE lubrication plugs and the top coating the PTFE gives the Norden SL-4 a Coefficient of friction dry at 0,12.
