Major components in aluminium make for a light and efficient waterjet. The aluminium inlet duct is integral with the thrust bearing and hydraulic system making the waterjet a complete package. Aluminium series waterjets provide a high volume flow from the axial pump, with a good driving thrust at lower speeds making them suitable for both planing and displacement craft. They can be installed as single, twin, triple or quadruple systems to suit the vessel design, with steering/reversing or as boosters.
The inlet duct is fabricated from marine aluminium plate for light weight, optimum hydrodynamic performance and resistance to corrosion.
The pump is a single-stage axial-flow design providing a high volume flow with good pulling thrust in a wide speed range
Usually, the aluminium series jets do not require reduction gears.
