Advantage of fitting thrust block inside engine

  • Ship structure already is strengthened for engine seating , so no need of additional strengthen
  • There are more no: of nodal points
  • Cross sectional area is more , so strengthening required is less.
  • No need of separate LO arangment as the chain\ gear LO supply can be tapped for using in thrust bearing.
  • Thrust collars outside is having the sproket , so space saving.
  • Both side of the collar have thrust pads
