The Veth-Jet is still used extensively in the inland and maritime navigation, but the thruster is also ideal for multiple sectors such as dredging, crane ships etc. The Veth Jet can be driven by a diesel engine, electric motor or hydraulically and is available in several variants, such as vertical-drive unit and with a gondola.
Advantages of Veth Jet
- Optimum thrust at minimum draft (once the propeller is under water)
- 360° of steering (in case of a 4-channel Veth-Jet)
- High thrust; approx. 11 kg per kW
- Easy to install and requires minimal maintenance
- Possibility to change propeller without (dry) docking
- The propeller only needs to rotate in one direction; it is optimized for this direction of rotation
- No protruding parts under the surface
- Possibility to change propeller without docking
- The 3 and 4 channel system can also be used as auxiliary propulsion or brake
- Fast steering time – from port to starboard in about 6 to 7 seconds
- No reverse clutch is required
- Choice of ClassicLine and CrystalLine controls
Veth Jet simple and effective
The principle behind the Veth Jet is simple, effective and largely self-sufficient.. Water is sucked in from under the vessel through a horizontal propeller. The water is then bent 90° through a 360° rotating drum and guided through a channel.
The entire thruster incl. gearbox is manufactured in-house. The Veth Jet is available in 2, 3 or 4 channel versions.
