turbodrive 600 H.C.T.
The Turbodrive 600 H.C.T. it is an innovative high efficiency propulsion system with ground-breaking performance destined to revolutionize the market of the large waterjets.
Castoldi has transferred all the exclusive technical characteristics of the H.C.T. range into it creating, after 4 years of intense studies with the most advanced CAD and CFD software, a complete and easy-to-install propulsion system that allows compact applications, with considerable savings in dimensions, weight and costs.
For the first time a waterjet of this size is equipped with an integrated gearbox (heavy duty certified) with many gear ratios available, matched to a multi-disc hydraulic clutch, the innovative Clear-Duct unclogging system (synchronizing operations of the impeller rotation reversing and the intake grid opening) and the integration with the interceptors.
The steering and reversing actuators have been designed to manage the high forces involved with two hydraulic cylinders controlling the movement of the bucket. This allows rapid and efficient crash-stops and one cylinder dedicated to the steering nozzle for greater dynamic efficiency.
The excellence of the materials used (such 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.
The Turbodrive 600 HCT is controlled by the ACES electronic system that can be supplied with several extra features such as position keeping, smart anchor, unmanned interface, autopilot integration and hybrid power.
