Drives for propeller shafts
More freedom for engine movement, less freedom for vibration
The VETUS DRIVE (Type VDR) is a combination of a self-aligning thrust bearing and a double-acting constant velocity joint. The propeller thrust is absorbed by the inbuilt thrust bearing, allowing the engine to be set up on softer mountings: this results in lower vibration and transmitted noise. The VDR is made of black passivated steel and high-performance rubber. This heavy-duty VDR has been tested under the toughest conditions and is suitable for maximum thrust up to 24,000N.
- VDR6 is available for shaft diameters of 50, 60 or 70mm
- VDR2 and 4 are available for shaft diameters of 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 or 50mm
- Interchangeable with other well-known models
- Durable design with long lifetime
