Vetus launches hydraulic steering kit
SCHIEDAM _ VETUS, the Dutch developer and maker of engines, generators and technical gear for recreational craft and small commercial vessels, has launched a complete hydraulic steering kit designed for smaller boats.
VETUS’ product line-up includes an extensive range of steering systems and accessories. Ease of use has always been key to Vetus’ development of steering systems. The complete kit (which Vetus gave the code MTC30KIT) includes a pump (type HTP2010), fittings for an 8mm diameter hose, a cylinder (type MTC3008), a 15m roll of nylon 8mm diameter hose (type HS04N), hydraulic steering oil (type VHS1) and all required fittings.
VETUS has been making marine products for more than 50 years. It has extensive experience with the components of the hydraulic steering MTC30KIT kit. All parts are manufactured to the highest standards using the best materials, for long service life, corrosion resistance and operating efficiency.
The pump in the MTC30KIT is of the axial piston type. The internal pistons are directly actuated by the steering wheel. The cylinder is of the double-acting type and mounted on a base, allowing it to swing according to the arc described by the rudder arm. The new MTC30KIT replaces individually available components. All steering pumps fitted with 10 mm compression fittings are still available and can be supplied with 8 mm fittings. All hoses and accessories will also remain available in both 8 and 10 mm.
