Quantum Marine Stabilizers

Marine Stabilizers – Zero Speed™ and Beyond

Since 1985, Quantum has been perfecting the Art of Stabilization. To date, Quantum has installed 1,000’s of stabilizer systems and 85% of yachts over 55m use Quantum’s Zero Speed™.

 

With a focus on innovation and cutting edge marine technology, the engineers behind Quantum Stabilizers have raised the bar for vessel stabilization systems.

 

Quantum Zero Speed™ Stabilizers were introduced in 2000 and proved to establish Quantum as a leader in the industry.  The enhancement of Zero Speed™, redefined the marine industry, for those who had previously suffered from seasickness.  That technology was soon followed by the XT™ Fin, MAGLift™ Rotor and Dyna-Foil™ proprietary technologies.  Today, Quantum is the preferred stabilizer choice for the large luxury yacht market, military and other commercial vessels. 

 

Quantum Patented Marine Stabilizer Systems

XT Fin™ Ship
Stabilizers
Quantum’s patented XT™ Fin is the most popular system to date. The main stabilizer fin houses another fin or “foil,” designed to extend or retract based on the speed of the vessel. To maximize the performance at zero speed, the foil is extended, providing 30% more surface area, while generating 100% more lift force. To maximize the performance underway, the foil is retracted, reducing the surface area, preventing any unnecessary drag or fuel inefficiencies. Standard fins are frequently converted to XT™ Fins.

Dyna-Foil™ Retractable Stabilizers
Dyna-Foil™ is the latest and most advanced technology on the market. It is the only system in the stabilizer industry, dedicated to Zero Speed™ and underway performance with retractable capabilities. It features a high aspect, articulating foil that maximizes roll reduction and comfort at all speeds. In Zero Speed™ mode, the swinging motion creates flow over the foil and therefore lift for optimal stabilization. While underway, the foil can be fully extended with minimal drag or retracted. Dyna-Foil™ is ideal for vessels with zero to medium-speed stabilizer requirements, Ice Class applications and/or space limitations for a fixed fin to fit within the hull’s envelope.

MAGLift™ (Magnus Effect)
Rotor Ship Stabilizers
MAGLift™ Rotor Stabilizer design is based on the Magnus Effect whereby a spinning object moving in a fluid creates a whirlpool of fluids around itself, and experiences a force perpendicular to the line of motion and away from the direction of spin. Unlike traditional fin stabilizer systems, the MAGLift™ Rotor Stabilizer generates lift proportional to the speed and direction of its rotating cylinders. Quantum’s design uses hydraulic power to deploy retractable rotating cylinders as directed by the SMC4000 stabilizer control unit to deliver full functionality at zero-, slow- and high-speed demands.
