New Color Brochure On Escher Wyss Props Available At No Cost

Escher Wyss, Ravensburg (Federal Republic of Germany) has supplied a total of more than 1,400 controllable-pitch propellers, whose power ratings and diameters extend up to 33,800 kw (45,266 bhp) and 7.8 m respectively.

The first hydraulically operated controllable-pitch propeller for marine application was put into service some 45 years ago.

A new informative 34-page, full-color brochure containing 100 illustrations and diagrams is now available at no cost from Escher Wyss. It considers the development as well as the advantages of the controllable-pitch propeller for the various types of ships in detail. The numerous diagrams reflect the benefits to be derived from controllable-pitch propellers under different operating conditions : increased towing power, reduced stopping time, improved operating behavior and the saving of fuel.

The particular features of the Escher Wyss design, e.g., accommodation of the control valve in the ship's interior, double and low-friction bearing arrangement for the propeller blades, large lever arm radii (providing precise pitch setting and low axial loads), own-choice propeller blades with bolted on or integrally cast trunnions, low maintenance and good accessibility to all the major components, are illustrated by means of large-size, three-dimensional pictorial representation.
