Heavy Duty Capstan Winch Models

Hydraulic and
Air-Driven Motors
Capstan winches can be supplied with either hydraulic or air motors if an electric motor is not suitable or preferable in a given application. This model VC 5000-45 fitted with a hydraulic motor has a working load limit of 5,000 pounds at startup and a line speed of 45 feet per minute.
High Speed
A wide range of line speeds is available to suit any application. From moving railcars to bringing in a vessels mooring line at dock side. This optional, electrically-driven capstan has a rated speed of 100 feet per minute, with a working load limit of 1,000 pounds.
This optional, air-driven capstan features an oversize design to accommodate large-diameter rope.
High Capacity
This capstan option was designed by Jeamar for a dry-dock application where a starting line pull of 22,000 pounds was required.
Corrosion Resistance Package
This feature, ideal in hostile environments, protects the motor, brakes and all moving parts.

Explosion Proof
Fully explosion-proof motors, brakes and controls are available for applications in highly sensitive or volatile environments.

Variable Speed and Torque Limitation
All Jeamar winches can be supplied with a variable frequency drive package which allows variable speed operation when critical load placement is required. The variable frequency drive controls the amount of current the motor can draw, limiting the amount of torque the electric motor can produce.

Large Drums
Large capacity drums are available for installations using greater-than-normal amounts of rope.
