The VEEMKaplan propeller series is suited to nozzle applications and is extremely popular for trawlers, tugs and other vessels requiring high towing or bollard pull thrust. The Kaplan propeller is designed to operate in a nozzle and has excellent thrust characteristics in low speed applications. The Kaplan propeller has a combination of aerofoil sections and double ogival sections towards the tip. The blade contour has a wide tip that is designed to run with a close fit to the inside of the nozzle. Each Kaplan propeller is customised for rake, blade area and boss detail to suit the specific requirements of each vessel. kaplan-yatch
