Marine Hydraulic Anchor Capstan

About product

A Marine Hydraulic Anchor Capstan is a versatile machine used for mooring and anchoring tasks on small ships. It features a mooring head and a gypsy designed for anchor chains ranging from 16mm to 60mm in size. The capstan is driven by an electric-hydraulic power unit (HPU) or a diesel engine, providing the necessary force for operation. It can be deck-mounted or thru-deck mounted, offering flexibility in installation options.

Product Detail

The anchor capstan functions as a mechanical device, utilizing a rotating drum to wind or unwind the anchor chain or rope. This allows for controlled handling and adjustment of the anchor during mooring and anchoring operations. The capstan provides efficient and reliable operation, ensuring the safe and secure positioning of the vessel.

By incorporating a marine hydraulic anchor capstan, ship operators can effectively manage the anchoring process, whether it involves raising or lowering the anchor. The capstan’s rotating drum enables precise control and smooth operation, facilitating the necessary adjustments to maintain stability and security.

Overall, the marine hydraulic anchor capstan is a valuable component of deck machinery that enhances the efficiency and effectiveness of anchoring procedures on ships and boats.

The Advantage Of Hydraulic Power Of Anchor Capstan

The advantage of hydraulic power for anchor capstans lies in its specific benefits for this application:

  • High Power and Torque: Hydraulic power systems can generate high levels of power and torque, allowing anchor capstans to handle heavy loads effectively. This ensures efficient and reliable operation, even in demanding mooring and anchoring tasks.
  • Precise Control: Hydraulic systems offer precise control over the speed, force, and direction of anchor capstans. This level of control enables accurate positioning and smooth operation, allowing for precise handling of anchor chains during anchoring processes.
  • Safety and Overload Protection: Hydraulic systems incorporate safety features such as overload protection and pressure relief valves. These mechanisms help protect the anchor capstan and prevent damage in case of excessive loads or pressure, ensuring safe operation and equipment longevity.
  • Durability and Reliability: Hydraulic systems are renowned for their durability and reliability. They are designed to withstand harsh marine environments, including exposure to water, salt, and vibrations. This robustness ensures consistent performance of anchor capstans, even in challenging conditions.
  • Compact Design: Hydraulic systems offer a compact design, making them suitable for installations with limited space onboard vessels. The compact nature of hydraulic components allows for efficient use of space, optimizing the overall layout and functionality of the anchor capstan system.
