Which Type of Anchor Rode Are You Using?

The anchor gypsy winch can weigh or lower an anchor using different types of anchor rode, including:

  • All-chain: all chain gypsies are self-tailing. It delivers superior abrasion resistance and great strength, and lies on the bottom in the majority of conditions. Many users favor all-chain gypsy winch. However, it is heavy, expensive and also collects mud.
  • Rope-chain: it uses a single gypsy with normal chain pockets on the perimeter and V-shaped grooves on the center to handle rope. The anchor rope is spliced directly to the last link of chain. To ensure a safe anchoring operation, the splice should be inspected regularly.

Technical Requirements for Gypsy Windlass

  1. This equipment is driven by a separate prime mover and motor. When the hydraulic pipeline of the hydraulic anchor windlass is connected to other deck machinery pipelines, it should be ensured that its normal operation is not affected.
  2. When the average speed is not less than 9m/min, the winch should have the ability to work continuously for 30 minutes to pull an anchor from the water depth of 82.5m to a depth of 27.5m.
  3. The winch should have the ability to work continuously for 2 minutes under overload conditions.
  4. The equipment should be equipped with a reliable brake. When it is braked, it should be able to withstand the maximum static load on the chain.
  5. The chain splicer shall be capable of withstanding the test load of anchor chain.
