PROPULSIONSOLUTIONS WITHFIXED PITCHPROPELLERS
Each ship’s hull has its own characteristics.For the vessel to achieve the highest possibleoverall eciency, the propeller must beperectly matched with the engine and hull.The Wärtsilä xed pitch propeller is thechoice when optimum eciency, reliabilityand robustness are required.Wärtsilä is able to solve all yourneeds with regard to xed pitch propellerinstallations:Total system solutions supplied

propellers are custom designedand made or each specic application.The propellers vary in diameter rom 1 to12 metres, and can weigh rom hundreds okilos to 140 tonnes.Given the complex geometry o modernpropellers, the casting process is monitoredrom start to nish to ensure the highestquality.Wärtsilä has produced some 9000 FPpropellers to date, or ocean-going vessels,such as containerships, tankers, bulk carriers,and dry cargo vessels.The tailor-made design and use o thelatest available technology that are eatureso Wärtsilä FP propellers or all ship types,guarantee maximum eciency with minimumnoise and vibration levels. They are also easyto repair.Wärtsilä’s patented Cunial

THE PRODUCTIONPROCESS
O the more than 25 dierent bronze alloysdeveloped by Wärtsilä or marine propellers,Cunial bronze is the most used and thereorethe best-known material. Cunial bronze, whichstands or an alloy composed o copper, nickeland aluminium, has unparalleled durabilityand reliability. The high quality o this alloy isthe result o years o research. Monitoring iscarried out throughout the melting process tocheck that the various elements are present inthe correct composition.Having complete control over the productionprocess provides us with valuable inormation,such as the atigue strength in seawater. Thisinormation in turn allows our hydrodynamicdesign team to design the propellers accordingto eciency limits, thus minimizing propellerweight.Casting the orm o a marine propeller is anextremely complex procedure. To predictthe casting process, we use solidicationsimulation sotware or dicult propellergeometries. Accurate control o the processallows us to use a minimum casting allowance.Today, Wärtsilä FP propellers areincreasingly being worked mechanicallywith the aid o grinding robots. However, theexpertise and eye or detail o the nisher isstill critical to give the propeller that essentialnishing touch.
