Propellor shaft grounding brushes and holders

We specialise in the manufacture of extremely low resistance Carbon brushes, to ensure excellent grounding of propellor shafts. For complete protection, it’s imperative to electrically ground the ship’s propellor to the hull, to minimise stern area corrosion and current-induced damage to the propellor shaft bearings and gearboxes.

This is achieved whether the main hull is protected by a sacrificial or impressed current system by using propellor shaft grounding. This consists of a set of silver brushes which ensure maximum contact with the least resistance to drain the current.
