ship steering gear system / hydraulic
RV/IRV Series – 2&3
The RV series of steering gear is suitable for large and medium sized vessels and is available with 2, 3 and 4 vane options. A dual, submerged pump powerpack simplifies installation as no expansion tank is needed. Modulated flow control gives a soft start and precise control for small rudder movements. The IRV series incorporates a double sealing system, completely separating the actuator into two individual pressure systems. Automatic isolation of the actuator’s dual hydraulic system is a feature to meet IMO single failure criteria for large tankers over 100,000dwt. They can be supplied with steering controls, CANBUS alarm system and rudder angle indicators. The RV/IRV 2 & 3 vane range is from 430 to 3916kNm.
