Thanks to thoroughly detailed production measures, combined with the latest manufacturing methods, we can offer top class hydraulic control systems. These systems consist of two parts: the hydraulic hand pump with axial plungers and the double-acting gimbal steering cylinder.
All items are manufactured to the highest standards and they are housed in corrosion-resistant materials. The installation of the control system is extremely simple, only the copper pipes and flexible hydraulic hoses need to be installed. To connect a second control object or an electro-hydraulic pump for autopilots, one needs an upgrade kit and corresponding locking blocks. To select your steering system, choose the type of cylinder that you need (required by your type of ship).
Corresponding calculation documents are available.
Info about hydraulic cylinders and pumps
Hydraulic cylinders determine the force of a hydraulic control system, while all pumps are interchangeable in theory. If a lower number is desired for the steering rotation, (Output per wheel revolution), a pilot pump can be selected with a larger capacity.
For the cylinder, we recommend the nylon hose to be ø 10 x 2 mm, or the copper pipe to be ø 10 x 1 mm. The hydraulic controls can be combined easily with an autopilot.
Major installations for commercial vessels are available upon request (also with a GL certificate).
