Description

Full hydraulic operation: offset or down angle output shaft.

The PRM750D and PRM750A marine gearboxes are purpose built for use in both pleasure craft and commercial boats; the twin countershaft design provides separate oil-operated multi-disc clutches (which need no adjustment) for ahead and astern drive allowing full rated power to be transmitted continuously in either direction.

To cater for the widest possible variety of boats the PRM750 is offered in two different configurations : with offset output shaft (PRM750D) and 8° down angle output shaft (PRM750A). Reduction ratios available are 1.09:1, 1.459:1, 1.935:1, 2.565:1, 2.904:1 and 3.952:1 (3.952:1 reduction is not available on down-angle gearboxes) all of which can provide either left-hand or right-hand propeller rotation in "ahead", making the gearbox particularly well suited to twin engine installations.

The robust and reliable hydraulic system uses lubricating oil of the same viscosity as that used in the engine, and helps ensure good boat handling by its rapid response to movements of the operating lever.

The operating lever has a positive neutral detent which assists the setting-up of the remote control operating unit whilst for added security, to guard against the unlikely event of hydraulic failure all gearboxes incorporate a mechanical lock-up device so the boat can be brought safely back to port.

The gearcase is constructed of high grade cast iron, internally ribbed for rigidity and strength, and consists of two separate halves to facilitate servicing, the oil pump and hydraulic control valves being externally mounted for easy accessibility.

A special feature of the PRM750D & PRM750A is the direct drive power take-off which is available as an optional extra; this will power a hydraulic pump to SAE J744C type 'B' specification, thus providing an economical and space efficient means of driving on-board machinery.

An electronically operated trolling valve can be fitted, which will allow variable speed of the propeller to zero whilst allowing a maximum engine speed of up to 1200 rpm.

It is essential for the engine, transmission model, reduction ratio and propeller size to be correctly matched so that the engine can attain its rated speed appropriate to the relevant service classification without labouring.

It is also necessary to ensure the torsional compatibility of the complete propulsion system from engine through to propeller, since disregarding this may result in gear noise, particularly at low speed operation, and may even result in damage to the engine as well as the transmission components.

Working Oil Pressure

Minimum - 30.34 bar (440 PSI), Maximum - 33.44 bar (485 PSI). Two tapped holes 1/8" BSP on the top, and M18 x 1.5 on the side of the valve block are provided so that the pressure gauge can be fitted if required.

Oil Cooling

The normal operating temperature of the oil should be in the 50°C - 80°C range and should not be permitted to exceed 90°C. An oil cooler is necessary to ensure that correct operating temperatures are maintained, and two 3/8" BSP connections are provided on the valve block to allow it to be fitted. The size of the cooler required depends on a number of factors including the transmitted horsepower, operating speed, duty cycle, inlet water temperature and ambient temperature.

Propeller Thrust

Both ahead and astern thrust is carried by the output shaft bearings which are of adequate capacity for all factory approved ratings.
