Prop.act – our new shifting clutch system is a hydraulically actuated, wet-running clutch unit. It is a stand-alone system, wich is bottom mounted. Within the drive train it can be connected between two shaft ends of the cardan shafts for example.

Prop.act impresses with a series of technical innovations and advantages, which make it efficient and economical to use.

The Prop.act clutch system can be applied in hybrid propulsions between the E-engine and the diesel engine for example. In this case the power take off can't be used because a stand by pump has to be installed.


Essential Advantages.

Efficiency
Prop.act is a sophisticated end-to-end system, which, for example, allows complete installation of the rudder propellers in the ship. 

The clutch system is fixed to the ships bottom as a stand-alone solution.

Wet-running
The wet-running of the clutch ensures wear-free operation (within defined technical limits).

Integrated oil supply
The supply of pressure oil and cooling oil is integrated with a built-in oil tank. As a result, no separate pumps, valves and heat exchangers are required, which makes additionally piping and expensive installation superfluous. Cabling due to shipping standard. 

Definitions
Defined drive interfaces enable simple assembly of the driveshaft through adjusted connection dimensions. 

Noise
The operation of Prop.act generates little noise. 

Integrated sensors
Built-in sensors produce all necessary signals for operation and monitoring.
This eliminates the need to install additional sensors and makes overall installation much easier.
