Marine Hydraulic Mooring Capstan

About product

A marine hydraulic mooring capstan is a versatile capstan installed on a ship’s deck for anchoring, mooring, and lifting purposes. It can be utilized on boats or shores and features a hydraulic drive. The hydraulic capstan enables step-less control of the capstan head through hydraulic or frequency-driven mechanisms. Comprising a hydraulic motor, gearbox, capstan head, and brake, it offers reliable performance in marine operations.

  • We offer a high-quality capstan that boasts a long working life and low maintenance costs.
  • Our capstan is backed by certificates from esteemed classification societies such as DNV, GL, ABS, LR, BV, CCS, KR.
  • we provide a customized design service, allowing customers to tailor the capstan to their specific requirements, ensuring optimal performance and satisfaction.

Product Detail

Selecting the Right Mooring Rope for the Hydraulic Capstan

The choice of mooring rope for the Marine Hydraulic Mooring Capstan is a critical consideration, as it directly influences several key factors. The material type of the mooring rope affects the design and specifications of the capstan, including the drum size, fair-lead type, bending radius, and deck space requirements.

When selecting the mooring rope material, factors such as strength, elasticity, durability, and operating performance should be taken into account. For large ships, cable ropes are often recommended due to their high strength and robustness. Cable ropes can withstand heavy loads and provide reliable mooring capabilities.

On the other hand, for medium and small ships, synthetic fiber ropes are commonly used. Synthetic fiber ropes offer advantages such as lighter weight, flexibility, and ease of handling. They also possess excellent elasticity, which helps absorb shock loads during mooring operations.

Based on the specific material and diameter of the mooring rope chosen, the Marine Hydraulic Mooring Capstan can be designed and manufactured to suit the requirements of different types of ships. This ensures optimal compatibility and performance between the capstan and the mooring rope, enabling efficient and safe mooring operations tailored to the vessel’s needs.

Ship Suitability for Hydraulic Capstan Power Range

The suitability of ship size based on the power range of the Marine Hydraulic Mooring Capstan can be generalized as follows:

  • For the lower end of the power range (5KN to 30KN), smaller ships such as recreational boats, yachts, and small fishing vessels would be suitable. These vessels typically require lower mooring forces for their operations.
  • In the mid-range of the power range (30KN to 100KN), medium-sized ships like coastal freighters, workboats, and small to medium-sized commercial vessels would be appropriate. These ships often require moderate mooring forces for their anchoring and mooring needs.
  • At the higher end of the power range (100KN to 300KN), larger ships such as ocean-going freighters, container ships, and large commercial vessels would be the target applications. These vessels generally have higher mooring force requirements due to their size and operational demands.
