Stern gear systems
As important as a reliable engine, stern gear assemblies need to be of the best quality available on the market. Stainless steel prop shafts made of Remanit (Duplex 1-44462) offer maximum strength and corrosion resistance, bronze stern tubes are equipped with a self aligning dual lip seal which eliminate the use of a conventional stuffing box. Lubrication is ensured by the use of raw water. Seals do not require grease nor oil. A wide range of standard lengths and diamters are available from stock. Longer shafts and larger diameters are available on request.Flexible couplings to be fitted between the gearbox and the shaft will reduce all vibration and noise. The VETUS Drive is equipped with a thrust bearing that allows the use of softer engine mountings.
