Doen WaterJets invest significantly in R&D and works closely with customers who seek tailored waterjet solutions for their particular applications. The process has been translating into continuous improvement of existing models as well as new and innovative products, including our exclusive Direct Thrust variant for all models.
All models in Doen WaterJets range are also available in Direct Thrust (DT) variant. With Doen’s DT waterjet products the impeller main shaft is arranged to thrust directly to the gearbox just like a conventional propeller arrangement.
The waterjet shaft line uses a conventional shaft seal and connects directly to the gearbox output coupling for a very compact installation without need for intermediate shafting.
Optima Series DT – Dt waterjets are mechanically simpler, and more cost-effective to operate and maintain. For models with Optima Series, the DT version is significantly cheaper than the standard version. Across the range, the DT waterjet also allows for savings by eliminating the intermediate shafting. The shaft length of DT variant is finite; it is therefore required for our engineering application dedicated team to review the machinerylayout to assess if the product suits your vessel.
