Tufcot has purchased a new Bearing Test Rig, due for installation in late October, which they say shows its continued commitment to new research and development methods as well as allowing them to offer new and existing customers an extra service.
The new rig is another step in the progress of the company’s Technical Department and the continuation of testing for its next set of Classification Society accreditations, having already achieved Lloyd’s approval for T100MP material for Rudder and Rudder Pintle bearings.
The test rig will offer testing on:
- High speed water lubricated Bearings
- Low speed dry running bearings
- High load lubricated oscillating bearings
- Dry running oscillating bearings
Tufcot will be posting further information on the installation of the test rig on its Twitter page (@Tufcot) and website.
