Ultrasonic Antifouling Systems:

Sonihull

The Sonihull antifouling system works by producing bursts of ultrasonic energy in multiple frequencies, so creating micro jets of tiny  bubbles that continuously clean the hull surface below the waterline.

Couplings:

Fixed or Flexible

We advise and supply exactly the correct coupling for joining the propeller shaft to the gearbox, whether it is a simple or complex requirement. We can provide both fixed and flexible types suitable for both metric and imperial shafts. We also supply a wide range of adaptors and bobbins.

Sigmadrive

Sigmadrives are designed to fit virtually all boats from yachts to workboats, canal narrow boats to military vessels; in fact pretty much any powered vessel with engines up to 1300hp.

Shafts:

We typically produce shafts in F51 Duplex or 316 Stainless depending upon the application. We ensure that the correct material is selected to provide, low wear and high resistance to corrosion together with high shear and torque loading strength.

Bell Marine produce both standard and non-standard shafts including matching special tapers, keyways and threads.

We ensure that run-out is within strict tolerances and also ensure the safe handling and packaging of all shafts to ensure that perfect alignment is maintained.
