Torductor Marine looks at key performance indicators including propulsion power, the total number of shaft revolutions and the total amount of energy developed during a voyage.
The solution is easy to integrate with the ABB Ability™ OCTOPUS - Marine Advisory System to allow analysis and reporting. This information can then be made available to the ship’s owners and managers through ABB’s fleet portal.
With no moving parts that can be affected by wear or drift, Torductor is virtually maintenance free and is also reliable and repeatable, giving consistent measurements.
ABB’s second measurement solution, which is used in conjunction with the Torductor, is its CoriolisMaster flowmeter. With its ability to measure mass, volume and real time density, the CoriolisMaster can be used to measure fuel flows, with the resulting data being used as part of the SFOC calculation. Highly accurate, the CoriolisMaster features a compact design that enables it to be easily retrofitted, even in confined spaces.
Like the Torductor, the CoriolisMaster is maintenance free, with no moving parts that can be affected by wear.
