Quantum Controls delivers 3 types of fins in different sizes.
S-type fins for underway purpose only (From 0,6 m² upto 15 m²)
P-type fins for dual purpose, zero speed and underway (From 1,0 m² upto 16 m²)
XT-type fins for dual purpose, zero speed and underway (From 1,2 m² upto 15 m²)
Quantum Controls designs and manufactures all fins in-house, focusing on vessels of approx. 30 to 180 metres in length.
The design team operate together with Universities and research institutes to create the most optimized fin shapes.
Modern CAD programs and Advanced Non-Linear FEM computational modelling are used to design the fins on the basis of 'fatigue' data, to ensure a long lifespan.
The specialty of Wetech is the manufacturing of curved 3D shapes in steel. A special technology is needed to build the smooth surfaces that are most important for
the hydrodynamical aspects of finblades and to decrease drag and to minimize chance on cavitation.
The result is a range of fins with excellent effectiveness at the least hydrodynamic resistance. Quantum truly sets the standard with fins measuring 0,6 m2 to 16 m2,
which can be applied in pairs or in sets of four. The innovations are continuing, and Quantum offers since 2007 its patented XT fins with an ExTendable section to
increase the surface area. This doubles the effectiveness of these fins at ZeroSpeed mode.
No other stabilizer manufacturer can offer equivalent performance in the same envelope, another Quantum benchmark.
