Marine equipment

The SLX Group supply the marine industry with purification solutions ranging from ballast water treatment systems and bilgewater separators for oily water. We also supply a range of advanced equipment such as SKF fin stabilizers and high performance rotary steering vane gear.

SKF fin stabilisers

SKF fin stabilisers have been proven in many installations over many decades. They are robust and highly reliable. They have been subject to continuous development and represent the leading edge of this technology.

All retractable fin stabilisers have anti-vortex tips. The Ultra High Lift Fin is a special tail flap which increases roll reduction efficiency by up to 15% compared with conventional two-part fin stabilisers.

Depending on your requirements, you can select:

  • Standard retractable fin stabilisers
  • Zero speed retractable fin stabilisers
  • Special stabiliser covers to reduce drag in way of the fin box
  • Fixed fin stabilisers
  • Special Eco mode control software
  • Retrofits of updated control systems for existing stabilisers
  • Rudder based roll stabilisation – see our information on steering gear

SKF rotary vane steering gear

The SKF rotary vane steering gear is a high-performance steering gear with very fast response times and angles up to 65 degrees or more on twin rudder systems with asymmetrical rudder angles.

Being relatively small in size, it is ideal for smaller vessels where space is an issue or where high performance is required. The steering gear can be used with any type of rudder.

Because of its very high speed of reaction, the steering gear is available for use on its own as a roll reduction system. By eliminating the need for fin stabilisers, this steering gear is particularly suitable for applications where the acoustic signal should be reduced.
