Freeze Fitting Methods

Freeze fitting using liquid nitrogen is a fast and efficient assembly method for an OrkotĀ® Marine bearing. The thermal properties of the material allow a good clearance between the bearing and housing when frozen and the material does not become brittle at cryogenic temperatures.

Freeze fitting using dry ice and alcohol will only provide the required clearance when using very light interferences. As such it is rarely a viable method in its own right and will often require press fitting as well.
