Topic: Kamewa Waterjets


  
 [No title]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
These waterjets are noted to be inefficient at low and mid- range speeds and they have speed and power operational limits imposed to reduce cavitation damage to their rotors.
The reason for this deficiency is that the standard waterjet is a pressurized water system with a pressure building nozzle positioned downstream of the rotor or impeller.
The improved marine propulsor of claim 23 wherein at least a portion of the liquid flow directing means that is in contact with liquid flow during at least a portion of its operation is curvilinear.

Kamewa waterjets have a very high pump efficiency.
At constant rpm, Kamewa waterjets absorb approximately the same power regardless of the ship’s speed.
Waterjets produce less vibration and noise than propellers.

These waterjets are noted to be inefficient at low and mid-range speeds and they have speed and power operational limits imposed to reduce cavitation damage to their rotors.
That is because the air layer under air cushion craft is ingested into the waterjet's inlet and causes a severe degradation of waterjet performance.
Waterjet air ingestion problems are also evident on many standard planing hull craft when operating in rough water where the waterjet inlet can be broached.

The vessel transports a maximum load of 760 tons (deadweight), which is equivalent to a displacement of 2110 tons.
It’s propulsion system is made up of four diesel engines Caterpillar 3600 of 7200 KW each and four KaMeWa waterjets, which provide a maximum speediness of 40 knots, and a cruising speed (90% capacity and 400 tons deadweight) of 33 knots.
The waterjets have a steering angle of 30º to each side and an inversion of 180º, allowing a very satisfactory manoeuvrability.

Generally the jets lose efficiency around 65-75 knots, probably due to lack of water through the intakes, and also that there hasn´t been a demand to develop waterjets for boats faster than that.
Without having the figures of Destriero right now, I think she was more expensive than that and she had a top speed somewhere just over 70 knots...
By the way, today I was at their harbour and saw a drag/skiboat passing with a turbine and I think it had waterjet.

 Successful Ferry
In particular, its captains are pleased with the manoeuvring, handling and control of the new ship.
At steaming speeds, steering is normally carried out via Seastate’s Tmax system, which increases overall efficiency by allowing all the thrust from the ferry’s four Kamewa waterjets to be used for propulsion.
The steering functions of the waterjets are thus normally only used at low speeds, particularly when approaching or leaving berths.
