Portable shaft power meter
Reliable data for shaft torque and power are vital for verification of the propulsion characteristics of a vessel and for safe operation of the main engine. These data are also key figures for the evaluation of hull and propeller condition. Fast response to the deterioration of vessel performance is critical for cost efficient operation and optimal planning of docking schedules. The Kyma Test Power Meter is an indispensable tool for shipyards during vessel sea trials, for special test purposes and for regular vessel performance evaluation. The instrument can be used by ship owners across their fleet by transferring the instrument from vessel to vessel for periodic measurements.
In order to meet an increasing market demand, we have designed the Kyma Test Power Meter, TPM. This is a lightweight portable instrument for temporary installation on propeller shafts.
All components, tools and accessories are packed into a carrying suitcase. A fully portable solution for transport in rough environments at shipyards, in ports and at sea. The TPM comes complete with tools, and expendable supplies for 5 installations.
The measurement principle is based on the well-proven strain gauge technology as applied for the permanent type Kyma Shaft Power Meters.
Kyma Test Power Meter is a user-friendly instrument, designed for marine application and manufactured according to the highest standards of quality assurance.
