At present, the winch for gypsy is mainly powered by electric and hydraulic system:

  • The electric powered winch is usually suitable for small to medium-sized vessels, and the anchor chain diameter is in a range of 16 to 93mm.
  • While the hydraulic power winch, also known as electro-hydraulic windlass, is ideal for medium to large-sized ships since it delivers stable operation and durable performance. The windlass gypsy diameter ranges from 16 to 120mm. Besides, this type of winch requires higher manufacturing technology and more maintenance care.

Technical Requirements for Gypsy Windlass

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The winch should have the ability to work continuously for 2 minutes under overload conditions.
  • 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.
  • The chain splicer shall be capable of withstanding the test load of anchor chain.
  • According to the diameter of anchor chain, there are several specifications to choose from, usually in a range of φ12-φ120mm.

What Is A Gypsy On A Windlass?

Gypsy is the chain handling wheel that provides for either chain or line to be engaged. It is the main component of the anchor windlass.

The meshing part of the gypsy wheel and the anchor chain – the chain ring socket, is composed of the bottom surface of the socket and the side surface of the gear tooth, which has to withstand torque, traction and impact from all directions, so the internal quality requirements are very strict.

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.

The windlass is designed not only to match your boat type, but the type and size of the chain. It comes with a wide selection of gypsies, thus it can be specifically designed and engineered to fit the existing anchor chain on your boat.

Do You Require A Remote Control?

It may be unsafe to operate the winch in harsh environments, thus the machine is usually equipped with an electric control box that is installed on the deck or in the control room. If you desire a remote control, a handheld remote (wired or wireless) is provided to ensure a safe operation.
