Wave patterns vs. scoop

Wet exhaust systems with under water outlets for superyachts need special knowhow and manufacturing skills. Not just everyones cup of tea. But definately our cup of tea! Backpressure control is super important. Nowadays the exhaust systems contain several components like SCR’ s, DPF’ s and silencers and the under water outlet may just be too much on the total back pressure. Good detailed info from the yard regarding the wavepatterns at several loads are needed to design the best scoop and to design an exhaust system with a total system back pressure below the required maximum. It’ s definately not a TIO equipped yacht, but as you can see, wave pattern study goes on in the weekend! 🙂 🙂
