Propellers | Choosing the right propeller
The fewer blades a propeller has, the more efficient it is. Unfortunately, fewer blades also means more vibration. Three-bladed propellers are the most common for pleasure boating because they offer the best compromise between smooth performance, speed and consumption. Propellers with 4 or 5 blades allow better acceleration and significantly reduce vibrations. On the other hand, it is to the detriment of maximum speed and fuel consumption. Each propeller blade...

How to choose this product
propeller

The propeller is a cast element consisting of a set of blades around a central hub and designed to transform an engine's rotary motion into propulsion. It usually has two to seven blades and a diameter ranging from a few centimeters to several meters on large ships.

Applications

All vessel propulsion systems other than hydrojets are equipped with a propeller. This includes drive shaft, pod and other configurations. There are propellers for every type of motor, from the tiniest outboard to those powering supertankers.

Technologies

The rotating propeller creates a pressure differential between the forward and aft faces of the blades, sucking water toward itself and pushing it astern, driving the vessel by hydrodynamic thrust. Its primary characteristics are the diameter, the number of blades and their pitch, rake (angle fore or aft with respect to the hub) and cup, or tip curvature.

Some models have folding blades to reduce drag on sailboats. On variable-pitch versions, blade angle of attack changes with boat speed to optimize torque, increasing efficiency and reducing fuel consumption. Certain twin-screw vessels with powerful engines have propellers which rotate in opposite directions.

How to choose

Choice of propeller will depend on motor type, power, rotational speed and gearing type and ratio. The central axis can be machined as a conical cavity for propeller shafts and outboards or as a crenelated cavity for pods and similar drives. Power transmission type and dimensions are the determining factors.
