Buy A Marine Winch – Electric or Hydraulic?

When selecting a winch marine, energy efficiency is very important. The most commonly used winches are electric or hydraulic winches.

Marine electric winch

Electric marine winch use electricity directly from the generator set. This winch system is simple and easy to operate, convenient to repair and maintain. Electric winches are the great choice for light duty and moderate use.

Marine hydraulic winch

Hydraulic marine winch works with fluid power, which uses a hydraulic system and a hydraulic motor pump between the generator set and the winch. It has stable operation, and can realize stepless speed regulation and automatically prevent overload. Hydraulic power winch can handle extreme heavy loads, so it is the best choice for large ships. When choosing a marine hydraulic winch, you must consider the electrical system that controls the winch. The control of the hydraulic winch includes a control panel display, joystick, switches and buttons.

What Is Marine Winch?
Marine winch is commonly used marine equipment that uses a drum to wind steel wire rope or chain to lift or tow heavy objects. It can be designed for anchoring, mooring or towing on ships or on the shore.
What Are the Different Types of Marine Winches?

Marine winch can be classified in many different ways:

According to the purpose, it can be divided into anchor winch, mooring winch, towing winch, positioning winch, etc.

According to the power source, it can be classified into electric marine winch and hydraulic marine winch.

According to the drum configuration, it can be divided into single drum, double drum and three drum winches.

What Is the Difference Between Marine Winch and Windlass?

Marine winch is deck machinery that can be designed for anchoring, mooring, towing, positioning, as well as lifting and pulling heavy loads on ships.

The windlass is specially designed for lifting and lowering anchors.

What Is the Difference Between Marine Winch And Capstan?

Marine winch and capstan are different in use, size and pulling force.

  • Marine winch can be designed for anchoring, mooring, towing, as well as lifting heavy objects on the ship. Marine capstan is typically used for anchoring and mooring.
  • Capstan is a sort of small winch that can wind but not store the rope. Its size is smaller thanthe marine winch.
  • Typically, the load capacity of a capstan marine is up to 10 tons. However, the loadcapacity of the marine winch can reach several hundred tons.
How to Size The Winch?

In order to get the right size of the winch, you need to know the maximum load capacity of the winch, which must be higher than the maximum weight that needs to be lifted or towed. Generally speaking, it is necessary to provide traction capacity twice the load to be traction.

You also need to consider the winch capacity of the first winding layer. As the rope or chain winds, the winding diameter and winch speed will increase. At the same time, due to the increase in torque associated with the increase in winding diameter, the traction capacity of the winch decreases. You can estimate that the traction capacity of the winch is reduced by 13% per layer.

If you want the winch to be able to lift the set load, make sure that the load indicated by the marine winch manufacturer is not just a traction load.

The winch speed and drum diameter must be adapted to its purpose. These two factors determine the traction speed of the winch. You need to distinguish the rotation speed of the idle winch from the towing speed under full load.
