Vosper Thorneycroft Engine
As a result of their propulsive performance modern water-jet almost as good as the propeller, and at high speeds and often exceeds it. Water cannon is very popular, where high-speed small craft should move freely in shallow water. Firm 'Vospauer' – a division of the famous British company 'Vosper Thorneycroft', which is building a small patrol boats and military vessels, has developed a series of water jets for advanced landing craft as the only engine of this allows such a vessel on the go 'pop' on the beach, and then weigh it on their own through the back of the jet, which drives the water under the hull. This advantage can be use and pleasure crafts, specially designed for 'landing' on unequipped shelving shore. Perhaps that is why the American company 'Hinckley' water cannon installed on their 36-foot model deykreysera, which by chance is called 'Picnic'. Safety – another positive feature water jet. The impeller is located inside the boat and not a danger to people nearby in the water.
This – the main reason for used water cannons and jet-skiers in tow. Rescue boats – another area where the water jets can play safety critical. In most cases, water-jet boat added solid fraction of the weight. Precise: not so much an engine as being in the water it constantly. When calculating the weight of the propulsion speed vessels of this water must be to add on to the weight of the vessel. Part of this added weight may compensated for the lack of line shafting gear as reverse and 'stop' provides a simple turn of the deflector (but in most plants need at least clutch between the engine and water cannons to the motor can operate independently of an engine operating mode).Tags: Equipment, industry
