IMTRA Introduces Decca Straight Line Wiper Systems
Heavy-Duty, Commercial Vessel Wiper Offers High Performance and Reliable Operation in
All Weather and Marine Conditions
New Bedford, Mass. - Imtra, the leading manufacturer and importer of quality marine products, announced today the availability of its Decca straight line wiper systems designed for both commercial marine vessels and non-marine applications. Engineered for reliable and efficient continuous duty operation, the robust wiper systems meet ships' visibility requirements and keep up to 90% of the window impeccably clear even in the harshest conditions such as heavy rainstorms, sleet and snow. The straight line wipers offer simple plug-and-play installation and feature a smart and innovative design for consistent performance and easy maintenance. Built with the highest quality materials and designed with reliability in mind, Decca straight line wipers are fully customizable for vessels in all ship categories.
Decca wiper systems are available with single or dual adjustable wiper arms that offer optional overlap capability. With 42 standard stroke length options, the widest selection on the market, the arm stroke can be set to any length from 20-inches to 14-feet. An additional wiper can be installed for taller windows and increase the wiper area by 100%. Equipped with internal heaters to prevent ice build up, the Decca straight line wiper systems feature self-parking, variable speed and interval control choices, an easily maintained interlocking belt of which short sections can be replaced, and an optional water spray that includes an air purge function to ensure clean lines.
"Decca straight line wipers have long been the system of choice for ships in Norway and Europe," said Alex Larsen, commercial sales manager, Imtra. "We are thrilled to add the renowned wiper systems to the Imtra product line. The response from the field on the Decca systems we have supplied has been overwhelmingly positive. Our engineering support, prompt delivery and, most of all, the extremely high quality of the Decca product are highly valued by our customers."
Decca straight line wipers are suitable in marine applications ranging from large offshore supply vessels, tankers and cruise ships to smaller rescue pilots, naval vessels and ferries. The wipers are also ideal for non-marine commercial applications such as dragline cranes and large machinery requiring high performance, heavy-duty systems that withstand harsh outdoor elements.
Constructed of the highest quality materials, the systems feature self-adjusting polymide track rollers; 316L sealed stainless steel lightweight wiper arms, bearings and roller tracks; a unique carriage assembly that ensures the integrity of the polyurethane drive belt; a waterproof cable connection system for simple attachment; a heavy-duty motor delivering maximum torque across the entire speed range; and durable wiper blades for superior performance in all weather conditions. The Decca straight line wipers are housed in a seawater resistant, anodized aluminum casing. Externally mounted to provide quieter operation, the wiper systems have a simple plug-and-play installation and are easy to remove for service work.
