Seastar Cylinder Power Add Opt 9 HC5802
Power Steering Cylinder – Secondary Cylinder without Servo
SeaStar® hydraulic power steering uses the ship’s engine(s) to provide the ‘power’ for the steering system, via an engine or gear box driven hydraulic pump.
A manual hydraulic steering system, comprising of a standard SeaStar® helm and a hydraulic steering cylinder (fitted with an integral servo cylinder and power steering valve), supplies the ‘control’ portion of the steering system. Under normal conditions, with engines running, a hydraulic oil supply is in stand-by mode, ready to be directed to the steering cylinder as dictated by the steering wheel, servo cylinder and power steering valve. Turning the steering wheel port or starboard makes the system go from standby intooperating mode and move the steering cylinder accordingly. In the event of a power source failure, hydraulic oil from the steering helm is automatically diverted directly into the servo and steering cylinder, providing the helmsman with manual hydraulic back-up steering. An engine room mounted oil reservoir allows easy system fill and assists the in-line oil cooler in cooling the hydraulic oil. An in-line oil filter helps to protect the steering system components against contaminants.
