SSS Clutches are selected for marine propulsion to give automatic changeovers between multiple engines in various propulsion systems. SSS Clutches already have several thousand marine propulsion references. The driving machinery includes steam and gas turbines, diesel engines and electric motors. Fluid coupling experience exists for reversing / aft manouevres. Propulsion schemes include** COSOS, COSAS, COGOG, COGAG, CODAG, CODOG, CODELOG and CODELAG with controllable pitch propellors, fixed pitch propellors and pump jet propulsors.
In general, SSS Clutches are added to marine propulsion systems to provide...
- Simplified / automated operation
- Improved Efficiency
- Fast Response
- Power Factor Correction
- Energy recovery
SSS Clutches are also used for marine gas turbine starting and turning systems.
SSS Clutch lock-in and lock-out is available as well as baulked mechanical safety protection against incorrect operation.
