Process air for air lubrication systems of ships hulls

Center name Тестовый центр
Summary A German SME, a spin-of a blower and compressor company, has developed a turbo blower for applications where atmospheric process air is needed on a constant pressure level. Hereby the blower is suitable for air lubrication systems that are approved to reduce the use of fuel of naval vessels by 5-10%. The German SME is searching for partners as shipbuilders for technical cooperation, research cooperation and joint venture agreements.
Description of the offer A German SME has developed a turbo blower which creates atmospheric process air on a constant pressure level, which makes the System suitable for air lubrication systems for vessels. Air lubrication systems, lead to reduced friction of the ships hull in the water and hereby reduce the fuel consumption of naval vessels by 5-10%. As a spin-off of a larger blowers & compressors the SME has developed deep knowledge of turbomachinery and sophisticated projects. The turbo blower is especially designed for applications where atmospheric process air is needed on a constant pressure level. Compared with conventional blowers the turbo blower leads to energy savings, enables a dynamic control of optimal operating points between 15% and 100 % of the power, enables infinite variations of motor speed, increases the performance up to 88 %, produces oil- and particle-free air and is maintenance free. The German company is looking for ship engineering companies, shipbuilders, shipyards and refiter applying the turbo blower for air lubrication systems, reducing the fuel consumption of large ships by 5-10 %. Targeted types of cooperation are technical cooperation, research cooperation and joint venture agreements. First steps of the cooperation are the joint further development of the system fort maritime applications.
Advantages and Innovations The offered turbo blower has the following advantages compared to conventional blowers: - Energy efficiency - Dynamic control of the power - Environmental friendly due to oil- and particle-free air - Maintenance free - Possibility of start-stop use Constructive advantages: - Magnetic bearings with directly mounted impeller - 100 % free of lubrication - Intuitive control via a build-in display - Easy integration into process control system
