The motor housing accommodates the stator of the drive motor, which is designed as a three-phase asynchronous squirrel cage motor. The motor runs in the operating fluid.
The electrical connection is established via the terminal box, which tightly seals the motor housing. The cast feet on the motor housing are used to secure the ELHY® thruster in place. The impeller of the pump is attached to the motor shaft.
The guide cylinder with the axially movable piston is located above the impeller. The interior of the thruster is filled with hydraulic fluid up to the level of the filler hole.
