VEEM is constantly pursuing innovation throughout its integrated design and manufacturing processes. One of the most visible innovations at VEEM is the patented Interceptor technology. VEEM Interceptor technology has revolutionized the propeller industry by enabling the relative pitch of each propeller blade to be altered in situ to enhance performance.
HOW IT WORKS
The Interceptor design is an adjustable protrusion on the trailing edge of the pressure face of the blade to produce a surface discontinuity. The protrusion is arranged with an included angle equal to or less than 90 degrees which causes a ‘wedge’ of circulating fluid to be captured. This ‘wedge’ of fluid induces a local increase in lift in this region of the foil section, without the associated frictional drag from alternative foil sections. Furthermore, the effective pitch of the blade foil section is dependent on the relative height of the interceptor strip. .
"SPLASH AND FORGET"
VEEM Interceptor propellers are at the forefront of fixed pitch propeller technology around the world, allowing users to ‘Splash and Forget’ their boats by providing adjustments to the relative pitch of their installed propellers without having to lift the boat from the water.
Interceptor strips come in different heights(0-3mm), adjusting the relative pitch of each propeller blade and in turn, changing its performance. This means that you can use all the engine power of your vessel regardless of varying conditions like load weight or changing water temperatures.
