Quantum Marine Stabilizers launches new rack and pinion R Series

Quantum Marine Stabilizers, one of the world’s leading marine stabilisation pioneers, has announced it has launched an innovative new rack and pinion actuator, the R Series. This launch follows the successful deployment and service history of the MAGLift™ Rotor, which provides superb stabilisation at loitering and zero speed™ operations.

The new rack and pinion R Series was engineered and refined through the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and independent model testing, offering existing and new customers a system with significant operational advantages.

Improved performance and design

  • The fins gain a wider range of motion, improving zero speed performance 
  • A more compact footprint compared to traditional hull units
  • Less wear and tear on the stabiliser system and quieter due to the even distribution of torque on both sides of the gear wheel


Significant savings on maintenance

  • Extended vessel maintenance schedule of 15,000 hours for main bearing replacement
  • The hydraulic cylinders can be rebuilt in place. This is a significant benefit compared to typical cylinder replacements that involve removing the heavy cylinders from inside the vessel


Safety features

  • An automated, mechanical locking pin and a manual locking pin to support maintenance operations and any emergency situations
  • Rapid acting relief valves protect the hull unit and hydraulic system should the vessel encounter any unexpected impact, broaching or slamming loads
