Bearings for the Offshore Industry

offshore

TENMAT high performance bearings are widely used in the offshore industry, supporting oil and gas production around the world. They excel in all sea environment conditions from shallow coastal waters in the tropics to deep sea wells in the North Sea.

TENMAT materials are suitable for use in:

  • Anchor chain guide bushes
  • Davit, sheave and winch bushes
  • Lifeboat release bearings
  • Cylinder rod end bushes
  • FPSO riser, turret and mooring pads
  • FPSO turret slide pads

FEROFORM T814 replaces metallic bearings with a lubricant-free solution for high-performance bearings for all types of service conditions, especially in abrasive offshore applications.

The dry running capability of FEROFORM T814 minimises maintenance requirements. Thus it is ideal for offshore applications, such as risers and FPSO turret bearings where maintenance proves difficult and expensive. FEROFORM T814 will not seize up or pressure weld and may be water, oil or grease lubricated if desired.

Key benefits include:

  • Non-metallic: no galvanic corrosion
  • Self-lubricating
  • Does not cause seizure
  • High wear and abrasion-resistant
  • Excellent stability: low thermal expansion and water swell
  • Low stick slip
  • Accepts misalignment
  • Maintenance and grease-free
