VSP Balances


For measuring the forces on VSP (Voith Schneider Propeller) drives, special measuring balances have been developed which, in comparison with the conventional VSP balances, enable the measurement of thrust, two lateral forces, and the drive torque. The VSP balances can be used in ship models, in the towing tank, and in the cavitation tunnel.
