Lightweight filters for High-Speed Crafts
Over the past 2 years, Damen Shipyards has developed a series of High-Speed Crafts: fast lightweight vessels, such as the coastguard. Because weight plays a very important role, STC Trade was contacted due to previous experiences with STC TRADE’s plastic seawater filters. The ships vary in length and function, therefore 4 types of seawater filters have been developed. A 5th type has recently been added.
In the past week, STC Trade delivered 12 pieces of HDPE filters, 6 pieces DN80 and 6 pieces DN125. The filters are supplied in collaboration with Eriks. More than 50 filters are now used in Damen ships.
Important benefits of the Perfoplast™ filters:
The filters are made of HDPE, a strong material that’s perfect corrosion-resistant.
70% weight reduction, resulting in uncomplicated maintenance.
Together with an almost unlimited lifespan, it makes it a very sustainable product.
A smooth, fouling-resistant surface ensures great water flow properties.
