turbodrive 490 H.C.T.
Innovation and technological evolution without compromises.
This is the guideline that Castoldi engineers pursued in the development of the Turbodrive 490 H.C.T. waterjet, designing each component with the most advanced CAD and CFD softwares.
The result is a waterjet with high propulsive efficiency, capable of an outstanding static and dynamic thrust which, thanks to its integrated heavy duty gearbox with many gear ratios available (typical feature of all Castoldi waterjets), can be finely matched to any engine on the market.
The excellence of the materials used (as the Duplex micro-cast stainless steel impeller and the titanium liner) and the production processes (anti-corrosion hard anodizing treatment protecting all the aluminium alloy components and three layers of special paint) make it unique for the construction quality.
Extra accessories include the superior Clear-Duct unclogging system (performing the simultaneous operations of impeller reversing and intake grid opening), integrated interceptors as well as various available control systems, among which the high-end electronic ACES with additional features such as: position keeping, smart anchor, unmanned interface, autopilot integration and hybrid power.
