Purpose

Propeller shaft grounding provides a low electrical resistance to the hull preventing erosion damage in the shaft bearings and gear.

When the propeller shaft revolves it is more or less electrically insulated from the rest of the hull. This can result in spark erosion in the shaft bearings and gear. Propeller shaft grounding provides a low electrical resistance to the hull preventing erosion damage.

Grounding the shaft will also include the propeller to the ship's cathodic protection system.

It is essential that the shaft grounding device represents a very low ohmic resistance.
