Gas valve unit increases engine efficiency

Eltronic FuelTech’s Geminus Geminus contains a gas control principle adjusted to the need of the engine

Shipowners and shipbuilders can increase engine efficiency, save energy and reduce costs with a new gas valve unit.

Eltronic FuelTech’s Geminus is also engineered to enables easy accessibility and maintenance.

Ryan Nielsen, director at Eltronic FuelTech, said “…Geminus contains an innovative gas control principle adjusted to the need of the engine. This enables shipowners and shipbuilders to increase engine efficiency, save energy and reduce costs.”

No encapsulation

The need to encapsulate the gas valve unit is removed as it features ventilated double walls which serve as an outer barrier with gas leakage detection, said Mr Nielsen.

This design makes the unit easy to access directly, while improving maintenance of components.

An existing gas valve unit is a double block and bleed piping system with components encapsulated in a large steel box making it difficult to access and maintain.

Along with increased accessibility, the new solution makes up one-third of the size and weight of an encapsulated gas valve unit and consists of six independent blocks.

“Shipbuilders can put together the blocks in a way that serves the need of their exact engine room setup rather than making room for a unit that takes up three square metres of floor space. This makes the gas valve unit suitable for newbuildings and retrofits,” explained Mr Nielsen.
