North American Marine Jet Expands Its Market

Since the introduction of its Traktor Jet 1-150 in 1987, North American Marine Jet, Inc (NAMJ) has (due to the tremendous acceptance of this revolutionary new high thrust, slow speed marine jet package), expanded into new market areas with the larger Traktor Jet HT Series.

These units with impellers in 18, 24, 34 and 52-in. sizes have been used by the oil industry in the Gulf Coast, Russia, South America, Europe, Asia and Scandinavia in seismographic vessels.

The Traktor Jet HT is a large diameter marine jet propulsion unit that can pump a high volume of water at slow velocity to deliver high thrust per horsepower, equal to or exceeding propeller performance in the 0-20 knot range.

The Traktor Jet HT Series units are ideally suited for any application requiring high thrust at slow speed, such as work boats, motor yachts, excursion boats, oil recovery/boom boats, fishing seine skiffs, and tenders.

These true axial flow units feature low shaft speeds (300-1050 RPM) providing efficient and dependable service when driven by diesel engines of up to 1,200 hp.

Based on the successful Traktor Jet series, NAMJ created the innovative the Traktor Jet HH series, which provides the high thrust capability of the HT series combined with increased dynamic thrust, to produce efficient performance up to 30 knots.
