Did you know that a nozzle can cool the main engines of a vessel?

8 December 2021

One of the optional features for our range of nozzles is Nozzle Cooling, which is developed to cool the low temperature systems of the main engines. You might wonder how this works: cooling the low temperatures of the main engines is achieved by directing the cooling water from the main engines through the nozzle construction.

The application of Nozzle Cooling has the advantage that, due to the rotation of the propeller, the flow speed of the seawater along the nozzle is always high – precisely when the main engines are heavily loaded. This guarantees cooling with high efficiency. Nozzle Cooling is specifically suitable for ships with a high bollard pull, such as tugs and workboats.
