Airflow Input

KPM Air Input Units have been designed to meet Class specifications. They offer the work boat operator high levels of protection, low maintenance costs and air flow performance. Using KPM arresting technology, air intakes can be reduced in deck footprint and depth allowing the Naval Architect freedom in design.

KPM Airflow Input Units Features include

  • Built in stainless steel fire skirt to Class specification insulated in A60, hard faced and sealed with aluminium for wear protection.
  • Heavy duty fire flap and release system for ease of use
  • Louvers backed by 10 layers of stainless steel mesh which act as a filter and vapour trap. This feature also meets USCG flash back specifications.
  • Main cabinet manufactured from 3mm aluminium and powder coated to specified colour.
  • Hinged louver panel for cleaning.
  • Sealed 24 volt DC low amperage high displacement fans with 20000 hour life.

Ease of Fitting

  • Designed to reduce the cost of fitting air systems.
  • Integral unit can be bolted down to the deck requiring only the air apertures to be cut and the deck ring welded in place.
  • All cable and fittings are supplied in one integrated unit.
  • Easy to retrofit or upgrade.
  • All systems are made to Class requirements.

Benefits

  • Eliminates spray whilst maintaining free flow of air.
  • Efficiently reduces flash back to US Coast Guard specifications.
  • Significantly reduces the cost of repairing corroded equipment and electrics.
  • Can be cost effectively retrofitted to any application.
  • Removes dust, dirt, oil and insects to desert requirements keeping equipment clean.
