The internationally renowned Marin/Wageningen 19A profile can be delivered in various L/D lengths. This nozzle type is often used for vessels where reverse thrust is less important. Each of the nozzles for this project has a diameter (Ø) of 3636.
DMC produced the nozzles using its Single Weld Spinning Method – based on a single weld seam on the inner side of the nozzle. The spinning machine can produce nozzles with an inside diameter ranging from 1,000 millimetres to 5.3 metres on the outside.
Using a completely automated system, the spinning machine can handle stainless steel, duplex, steel and special steel materials.
The reduction in CO2 emissions associated with nozzle use already improves vessel sustainability significantly. With the Single Weld Spinning Method this goes even further. The reduced grinding and welding equals less energy use and, thereby, less emissions. Additionally, the method saves production, which enhances DMC’s stable price/quality ratio for increased cost-efficiency.
“We are very pleased to supply the nozzles for this notable vessel. Back in 2015, we delivered our 10,000th nozzle. At the time of writing this has risen to approximately 12,500 – a testament to the quality and popularity of our product range,” said Kees Oevermans, Damen Marine Components Sales Manager.
