Wide Applications of Ship Winch

A marine winch is a piece of marine deck equipment applied for handling ropes or wires, and works by spooling or winding the ropes or wires on a drum with a horizontal axis. Powered by electric or hydraulic motors, the winches on ship are fixed and used for various purposes.

Ship winches are very useful whenever the ships need to be anchored, stopped, towed or there are something on ships needed to be lifted or pulled. When a ship reaches a port or pier, it needs to stop, and the ship anchor and mooring winch will be used to help with the ship anchoring and mooring to make sure it stops and keeps in the place safely without moving or drifting; according to ships with different sizes, shapes and rope capacities, they will choose windlasses with different rated loads and drums; when the ship starts to set sail after the stop, the winch will let in the line attached to the anchor to make the ship leave the port or pier; when a ship needs to be towed under some special circumstances, the winch will connect the ship to the tug boat to implement the towing operations; when there are some loading and unloading operations on ship, the winch will also be used to finish the weights lifting work.

The most common use of winches on ships is for mooring, which means the winches are usually located on the fore and after the decks at both sides of the ships. The mooring system can hold a ship in position and prevents the ship from drifting away from a berth.  The ship mooring winch performs variety of functions, for example, the winch serves to store the mooring line when it is not in use, and to haul the ship in place against environmental forces, or it can also act as a kind of safety device which releases the line load in a controlled way once the force in the mooring line increases to the limit of breakage.

Electric and hydraulic ship winches are widely used on ships, electric winch gets its energy from a live current, and hydraulic winch relies on the pressured water chambers, which provides energy for it. Hydraulic winch is usually with large rated load and used on heavy ship. There are mainly five parts for a complete hydraulic system, and they are as follows:

(1) power device: it supplies the hydraulic system with pressure, converts the mechanical energy output from the motor to the pressure power of the oil and then drive the overall system to operate;

(2) actuator: it includes hydraulic cylinder and hydraulic motor; it is used to convert liquid pressure energy to mechanical energy to drive work parts operate;

(3) control and adjusting device: they consist of a variety of valves, such as pressure valve, flow valve and directional valve; they are used to control the liquid pressure, flow (flow rate), and the liquid flow direction of the hydraulic system, ensuring that the actuator finishes the expected work movement;

(4) auxiliary device: they include all kinds of pipe fittings, tubing, tank, filter, pressure gauge etc. They play role in connection, storage, filtration, storing pressure energy and measuring oil pressure to guarantee the reliable, stable and durable work of the hydraulic system;

(5) working medium: it refers to the oil bearing and transferring the pressure.

All in all, as a piece of necessary equipment on ship, the winch plays a very important role in the implementation of many operations, such as anchoring, towing, mooring, weights lifting on ship. With a high quality ship winch, those marine operations mentioned above can be ensured and the work efficiency can be greatly improved.
