Vestas is an approved supplier for water mist catchers installed on MAN Diesel engines. Also, Vestas supply replacement mist catchers no matter who made the original.
In Spring 2010, a revision to the construction design of Water Mist catchers was requested by MAN Diesel A/S. (The specification is detailed in spec reference 0 74 33 65 – 1 rev. 1).
The new design called for a change in the angle of the “vanes” of the WMC and an increase in the number of welded joints between the “vanes” and the frame/support structure. The result is a significant improvement in the performance of the water mist catcher.
Such co-operation is typical of the close relationship we have with our engine building partners.
