Named the Mozah by Samsung, the 345m ship has twin rudders and chose TXMM for the rudder stock (upper bearing) and TLMM on the pintle (lower bearing), allowing operation without lubrication.
The Orkot TXMM material has long life with low unlubricated friction It is an advanced synthetic composition incorporating solid lubricants, with exceptional wear resistance, virtually no swell in water and great dimensional stability
The bearings tolerate edge loading and misalignment even with the heaviest loads.
TXMM adds a specialised bearing surface to extend dry running capability.
Both bearing materials can also be used in conjunction with water and grease lubrication.
