Vertical Electric Mooring capstan is a machine for mooring work on various ships when the boat or ship reaches to a port or a dock, it consists of a mooring head for wire ropes range from 16mm to 120mm driven by a electric motor. It has the same function as mooring winches. Mooring capstan is also usually used for boat anchoring. Different from capstans driven by hydraulic power, electric capstan is powered by electricity from the motor and it is widely used especially for mooring and anchoring ships, but its load capacity is not very heavy compared with heavy-load marine winch applied for anchoring and mooring operations. The electric mooring capstan is available with a rated pull from 3-20 t.
If you are looking for an anchoring or mooring solution for your ship, capstans should be one of the first things that you consider. The capstan is the simple device and it is easy to install and operate. When you use such a device, you don’t need to worry about the things going wrong, and you can just count on the capstan to work the way it is supposed and expected to. Electric capstan is just such kind of product which can make your operations easier and safer. No one wants the anchoring or mooring work complicated, and therefore it is important to choose the quality capstan winch from leading and professional suppliers.
It is necessary to ensure the proper installation and to demonstrate the operational capabilities, and to measure the cold insulation resistance of motor and control box of the electric capstan before using it on ship or on the shore. Electric mooring capstan should be equipped with automatic control braking device, when the capstan is power lose, the brake device should function automatically as braking, and it should be able to bear 1.5 times the hawser load.
The necessary capacity of electric capstan rope winch results from the nominal rope pull and the related rope speed. The warping head is driven by an electric motor and the torque transmission gear is placed in the warping head. The motor of marine capstan is usually IP56 because of its special working occasions. Planetary gear box is often applied by capstans.
