Microbubbles have the effect of reducing resistance inside the pipe, which leads to cost reduction of fluid transportation.
In addition, the resistance to the bottom of the ship can be reduced, leading to fuel savings during operation. A flat bottom is more effective in reducing resistance, so it is especially suitable for ships used in rivers and lakes. Using fine bubbles not only saves fuel, but also purifies the river at the same time, so from the view of purification, there is also an advantage in installing a fine bubble generating nozzle on the ship.
Main application examples in resistance reduction
