ship water-jet drive
The modular design allows flexibility in the scope of supply.
A compactly designed axial pump with excellent efficiency, cavitation and noise characteristics.
High performance components in stainless steel to prevent wear and corrosion.
The water lubricated bearing in the stator bowl provides an environmentally friendly solution.
Water lubricated Face type sterntube seal with an optional inflatable emergency seal.
Inboard mounted thrust bearing block, for increased life and easy maintenance.
Tailor-made inlet design based on the shape and operational profile of the vessel.
The characteristics of a waterjet make it a good propulsor for numerous applications.
High speed vessels; waterjets have better propulsion efficiency at ship speeds over 25-30 knots.
Shallow draft vessels; the integrated steering function provides benefits for rescue vessels, inshore passenger ferries, landing crafts & special work boats.
High power density; the pressure built-up in the waterjet inlet allows small dimensions.
Maneuverability; waterjets have integrated steering and reversing with quick response times.
Examples of such applications include:
Littoral combat ships
Fast patrol boats
Fast supply vessels and workboats
