Guide force and unbalanced moments, axial thrust, hull beam and propeller induced vibrations are well-known issues related to low speed two stroke diesel engines. Vibrations often lead to limited engine performance, cracking, reduced mechanical strengths, abnormal wear on rotating machinery or failure of electronic components.
The servo driven moment compensator reduces, or even eliminates, the source of vibration due to the unique technology that creates an exact opposite direction with a counterforce identical to the force induced by the engine. The imbalance is neutralized and no stress or vibrations will be transferred into engine foundations and neighboring structures.
Key features include
Whether a resonance is present, reduction of external moments and guide force moments means better and smoother running engines. The vibration compensator can be used as a preventive maintenance tool reducing wear on most engine related equipment as well.
Installing the vibration compensator is a relatively simple project that does not interfere with the operation of the vessel. Once installed, no further adjustments, or operational attendance, are acquired.
