Fishing Vessel Hydraulic Systems

VHS Hydraulic Components Complete Hydraulie Campanent Supply FISHING VESSEL HYDRAULIC SYSTEMS A fishing vessel is a ship or boat engineered to catch fish in the sea, on a lake or on a river. Modern fishing trawlers incorporate many features that are specifically designed to facilitate fishing. They also make use of hydraulic systems to help fishers winch in and bring aboard their catch. Here is a detailed look at a typical fishing vessel. SHIP OVERVIEW The Wheelhouse contains the ship's steering system as well as a number of navigational systems. Bunks and Kitchen - The vessel has facilities to sleep a number of crew members. The captain often has a separate cabin. An on-board kitchen is fully equipped to feed the crew while at sea. Engine Room - The vessel's power and propulsion is generated below deck by one or more engines, typically running on diesel. Block and Tackle System - Steel cables and a large boom are used to haul heavy gear aboard the boat. Fish Holds - Below deck, a number of watertight bulkheads house the containers that store and ice the ship's catch. Dredge - A large container or net that is used to catch fish. The dredge is brought aboard via a hydraulic winch. Block and Tackle System Wheelhouse Dredge Bunks Kitchen Engine Room Fish Holds HYDŘAULIC WINCH Drum Hydraulic Motor Base Winches are devices used to pull a heavy load. They are typically used to pull in, let out, or otherwise adjust the tension of a cable or rope. A hydraulic winch is commonly used in the marine industry. It is powered by a hydraulic system, in many cases, the power steering pump. One of the best features of a hydraulic winch is its ability to pull for longer periods than an electric equivalent without overheating. A hydraulic winch is ideally suited for heavy-duty marine applications to perform anchoring, towing as well as lifting and hauling heavy objects. It can be adapted to both offshore and onshore applications. VHS Hydraulic Components is a stockist of many hydraulic components and also design and manufacture bespoke hydraulic power pack systems to meet customers' exact requirements. This includes electric power packs up to 75kw, diesel and petrol power packs up to 200kw as well as a number of modular power pack options.
