Capstans can be supplied with start/stop, foot-operated controls of the “deadman” variety. If the operator’s foot moves off the switch, the capstan will stop. This type of control allows the operator to use two hands on the rope, for optimum control (see page 41).
HYDRAULIC AND AIR-DRIVEN MOTORS
Capstan winches can be supplied with either hydraulic or air motors.
Fully explosion-proof motors and controls are available for applications in hostile or volatile environments.
This horizontal capstan features an oversized drum designed to accommodate large diameter rope. High line speeds as well as variable speeds can be achieved with standard controls. Braking systems for maximum load handling are available as options.
HIGH CAPACITY LOADING
This high-capacity, electric powered capstan has a working load limit of 22,000 lbs. The winch is self locking for maximum load holding. A number of these winches have been designed and manufactured by Jeamar for use in dry-dock applications.
HIGH SPEED AIR POWERED
This high-speed, air-powered winch can develop line speeds up to 100 feet per minute. Braking systems for maximum load handling are available as standard.
POWER TO SPARE
This electric-powered capstan, with a working load limit of 30,000 lbs, is ideal for those really big jobs. It has a double braking system for maximum load handling, a stainless steel control panel for use in hostile environments and an extra-large diameter drum for handling the large ropes.
