As Superyachts become larger, so do the demands for specialised anchoring equipment.
Maxwell has designed and introduced a range of integrated chain compressor (clamp
stopper) roller-tensioner units as an alternative to conventional chain stoppers and stopper
tensioners. These chain compressors are designed for safe, effortless chain engagement
and disengagement, even if the chain is under tension, by using an easy operable lead
screw and handwheel.
Fabricated in stainless steel and mirror polished, they add to the aesthetics of every vessel's
bow area. Maxwell chain compressors are available as stand alone units or mounted on
a platform, together with bow roller/chain tensioner (devil's claw) systems. Chain rollers
are specially designed to fit each particular chain size, ensuring smooth, quiet operation.
