PRIME Blue: water-lubricated stern seals and stern tube bearings
AEGIR-Marine offers a durable and reliable seal system. On top of that, it’s proven to be pollution-free. The PRIME Blue stern seal and stern tube bearings have many benefits for vessels with water-lubricated shafts. This type of seal is easy to install and operate. The seal does not wear the propeller shaft sleeve. Maintenance, including changing the seal, can be completed while the vessel is in the water. Seals come standard in a partial split version but are also available as a fully split on request.
The design of the PRIME Blue type seal is very straightforward. It consists of a rubber lip seal rotating with the shaft. The lip seal rotates against a stationary mating ring made of stainless steel. The seal casing is made of cast bronze. An inflatable seal for emergency and maintenance purposes is installed in the housing. Seal assemblies are supplied with one spare seal, which is installed around the shaft, ready for installation. This can often be done without the need for a service engineer.

Together with the PRIME Blue rubber stern tube bearings, a complete and reliable water-lubricated system can be installed. PRIME Blue bearings are available in straight and flanged types.
