Flume® Roll Damping
FLUME® is a passive free surface open channel box type roll damping tank. It has the unique ability to adapt to changes in the vessel’s loading and operating condition. The stabilizers’ natural response period can be adjusted by a liquid level variation to match the corresponding roll period of the ship. Equipped with a Liquid Level and Roll Period Indication System that constantly monitors the operating condition of the vessel and the stabilizer the system assists the crew in achieving the maximum roll stabilization. As an add-on, the system can be upgraded with a designated pump to adjust the liquid level in the tank automatically, therefore no interaction of the shipboard personal is required. The FLUME® Roll Damping tank is especially suitable for vessels with a very large variance in loading conditions. As it has no moving parts maintenance and initial installation cost are relatively low.
