Hydro Armor Sales
Who we are
Hydro-Armor, which was established in 1968, has already supplied and installed thousands of hydraulic units over the years. Sometimes under the most extreme conditions, such as in Arctic or tropical areas. These units are produced in Hydro-Armor's own factory in the westernmost tip of France.
The advantages of hydraulics
Significant cost savings. Cheaper to purchase, cheaper to maintain and repair.
Less damage. No bevel gears, no drive shafts, special seal system. Equipped with shear pins, very solid construction, even suitable for Arctic conditions.
Shorter delivery times. Thanks to an advanced production process and ample stock.
Simple, quick and easy to assemble. Plug-and-play system, assembly without alignment. Can be installed at any height, even entirely submerged in water.
Choose for yourself where to install the engine.
Greater flexibility on-board. Besides the propeller, with a hydraulic power pack you can also power other systems, such as a crane, a winch or even a generator. As a result, you need fewer diesel engines to do the same thing.
Optimal manoeuvrability. From full steam ahead to full astern in 2 seconds. Quick steerage, ideal for dynamic positioning.
Super-compact, good performance, low noise level, can also run on bio-oil
The advantages of a retractable system
Prevent damage. With the depth adjustment system, you can easily adjust the height of the propeller to differences in water depth or load.
Optimise performance. Better performance and lower fuel consumption due to optimal water flow.
Fully retractable. Even if the ship runs completely dry, the propeller remains undamaged.
The advantages of a tiltable system
Easy to maintain. Dirt or rope in the propeller? Damage? Because you can tilt the propeller, you do not need the services of a diver or dockyard. This saves you a lot of time and money.
Easy to operate. The propeller is tilted with the press of a button.
Secure with sheer pin system. If you hit something, then the safety pins will break and the propeller will automatically tilt upwards. This prevents any damage.
