Maintaining a Water-jet propulsion unit
Maintaining a water-jet propulsion unit is crucial for the efficiency and longevity of marine vessels.
Here’s a general maintenance guide:
Visual Checks: Look for any signs of damage, wear, or corrosion on the unit, nozzle, and surrounding components.
Intake Grate: Regularly inspect and clean the intake grate to prevent debris from entering and damaging the system.
Seals and Bearings: Check seals and bearings for leaks, wear, or damage.
Nozzle and Steering Mechanism: Ensure proper functionality, inspect for any signs of wear, and lubricate moving parts as needed.
Flushing: After each use, flush the unit with clean water to remove any salt, sand, or debris that could cause damage.
De-scaling: Periodically clean the unit to remove scale buildup using manufacturer-recommended descaling agents.
Greasing: Lubricate moving parts and bearings regularly using appropriate marine-grade lubricants.
Seal Maintenance: Ensure seals are in good condition and replace them if necessary to prevent water leakage.
