Matn's hydraulically driven naval stabilizer system consists of the following components:
- tank for hydraulic oil
- hydraulic pump driven by the main engines or separately by an electric motor
- proportional valves
- actuators with hydraulic drive and sensor feedback of the fin position
- computer with built in movement sensors
- touch screen panel to operate the system
The tank, pump and cooler can be integrated in the hydraulic system of the ship but MATN’S can also provide those components separately, assembled in a power pack.
The fins are made from grade A steel and have a NACA0012 profile. They are protected from corrosion by a 3 layer epoxy paint system. Other materials (carbon composite for example) are possible for the production of the fins.
