Pressure control for parallel operation

The axial piston high pressure pumps shown

here maintain a controlled pressure to the
common piping system. By means of parallel
operation of the axial piston units (APU), the
main engine out-put (PTO) and axial piston
units themselves are loaded uniformly.
In addition the APUs operate without
oscillation of the control.

With this design, drive powers of 6000 kW
per PTO are converted into hydraulic energy.
This corresponds to a oil flow of

Great influence to the design of a propeller

drive will be the performance of the shaft
end. Due to the design of this motor, it is
possible to create the shape of the flange and
shaft to nearly every requirement and to
mount the propeller directly.
In order to cope with the high axial and
radial forces, arising from the application, a
new type of bearing was created.
Other very interesting applications have been
implemented together with Hydromarine. The
ships main drive, for example, produced a
better overall efficiency than the conventional
drive because of the considerably improved
arrangement of the propeller. This was partly Flange versions A4FP/A10FP
because the traction propeller version had
been selected.
The same principle was also applied for the
bow thruster. To protect the drive shaft
against seawater, there is a ceramics coated
sleeve included.

These shown examples are typical

applications for axial piston units in marine
and offshore field.

In addition to this, we offer in view of an

increasing demand for hydrostatic
transmission, in each marine equipment, the
suitable solution.
