For almost thirty years, they have developed, manufactured, supplied and supported the application of composite materials into multiple worldwide markets.
L2 Marine is a high load composite bearing material that has been specifically formulated for marine environment applications.
With virtually zero swell in water and very low thermal expansion coefficients, L2 Marine is ideally suited to the operating conditions and working environment of rudder and pintle bearings which can be either water, oil or grease lubricated and even applicable to dry conditions. L2 Marine was developed to give improved performance, longer life, non-lubricated operation and a maintenance free bearing solution.
L2 Marine is the only composite material approved to operate as a rudder bearing in wet and dry conditions at bearing pressures up to 10 MPa. Class approvals are held from many of the world’s foremost classification societies.
Being the same specification as that used for rudder bearings, all the key features described above, apply. L2 Marine is a maintenance free solution that is available as finish machined bearings or in billet form for final machining in the shipyard. The excellent bearing performance of L2 Marine coupled with its superior physical characteristics offers shipyards and ship owners many advantages.
ACM has extensive experience supplying L2 Marine bearings for the marine and offshore industry in a wide range of applications including rudder bearings and water lubricated but L2 Marine is equally applicable to steering gear, bearings for anchor handling systems, crane bearings, life boat systems, winches, stern roller bearings, offshore moorings and so on.
ACM L2 Marine is successfully installed and operated on over 7,000 vessels worldwide.
Yes, most water lubricated bearings require this, to keep bearing temperatures within limits but also to flush any unwanted debris and particulates from the bearing/shaft interface. Remember that this seawater flush should also be filtered to promote bearing life.
