How They Work
Graphic - How They Work Graphic - How They Work
The engine driven pump (1) draws hydraulic fluid from the reservoir (2) and directs pressurized (800 - 1500 psi) fluid to control valve (3).
At the direction of the switch in the helm station control panel (4), fluid is directed to the reversible thrust motor (5) through hose (6) or (7). Fluid then returns via the other hose through valve (3) and filter (8) back to the reservoir.
Note: This schematic is not to scale. It is meant only to
represent graphically how the thruster operates.
