Thordon Video Makes TG100 Seal Installation a Breeze

Posted by Michelle Howard

Thordon Bearings has updated its TG100 seal installation requirements to facilitate cost-effective installation at all shipyards with the release of new instructional videos. Shipyard staff can quickly and easily install the state-of-the-art seal themselves, reducing the overall costs of TG100 procurement.

In addition to instructions detailed in its TG100 Installation & Operation Manual, Thordon has produced a three-minute YouTube video outlining the steps shipyards need to take to achieve the perfect TG100 install. Additionally, a video has also been produced to guide shipyards through the ten-step process to prepare the TG100 seal for shaft withdrawal.

To ensure that installation remains under warranty, a simple registration form must be completed by either the shipyard or the vessel owner.

With hundreds of TG100s in service, the state-of-the-art seal incorporates an important safety component allowing vessels to return safely to the nearest port should the primary seal undertake heavy damage.

This emergency inflatable safety seal was put to good use in February 2019, when it was successfully deployed on a 70ft (21m) long workboat following multiple shaft failures. Its activation prevented the vessel from sinking.
