GRAVITY FEED LUBRICATION
The thruster gearleg is supplied with oil from a separate reservoir above the waterline. This generates overpressure, making an effective seal against water intrusion while allowing easy access for oil change.
The Q-PROP™ has measured noise reductions of up to 75% in controlled environments. The five-bladed skew propeller reduces noise levels while maintaining exceptional efficiency. Some thruster models even see an increase in thrust power.
- The expected noise reduction in average installations: 20-40%
- Upgrade kits are available for most Sleipner thruster models with special adaptors
TWIN COUNTER-ROTATING PROPELLERS
Two counter-rotating propellers offer the most thrust at a good performance ratio in a minimal tunnel diameter. This system is used in our larger thrusters for maximum power. Our twin-counter thruster range is the favorite among leading boatbuilders in high-end yachts.
Ideal Vessel Class: Commercial vessel, Motor boat, Sail boat.
