|WATER JET PUMPS OF HIGH-SPEED FERRY EROSION REPAIR - FUEL SAVINGS
|Corrosion / wear resistance repair & fuel efficiency improvement
Elimination of the damaged part of the dome.
Installation of the newly manufactured dome.
Corrosion-resistant and energy-saving coating application completed.
Jetfoils include as part of their maintenance program the coating of their Waterjet pumps.
■ Energy saving: Fluiglide
■ Repair with Corroglass 200 & 600
■ Check of minimum design tolerances in critical areas.
■ Fluiglide aplication
■ When the Jetfoil cruises at 43knots FOILBORNE speed, the gas turbine fuel (gas oil) consumption rate is approximately 2,150 l/h, after the Fluiglide the application, the savings run between 5 to 7% of fuel consumption this represents up to 150 lt/h in savings.
■ Repair costs are quickly recovered from savings in fuel consumption.
■ Due to the excellent results Corrocoat products have shown in protecting against erosion and reducing fuel consumption of Waterjet pumps, 7 companies have incorporated the fluiglide coating system as part of their preventive maintenance services.
