Yacht Insulation Applications
Properly installed insulation is important to the Air Conditioning system of your vessel and components on the interior of the yacht.
Thermal Insulation: Plumbing Lagging
Chilled water systems play an important role in meeting the cooling needs of your yacht. Chilled water pipes operate below ambient temperatures, proper insulation can protect these pipes from moisture and condensation problems such as corrosion and mold growth.
Adequate insulation can also safeguard against heat gain, which would otherwise minimize the cooling system’s efficiency.
Chilled water pipes are especially prone to moisture intrusion. Moisture intrusion is the condensation of vapor on the surface of the pipe. This happens because of the temperature difference between the chilled water pipes and the surrounding environment.
Vapor condensation and the formation of moisture on the surface of the piping network can result in a number of problems. First, moisture forms mold and mildew. This not only diminishes the efficiency of the cooling system but also poses significant health risks to facility workers.

Services and transmissions at ZF Marine work together perfectly
Another distinguishing attribute of ZF is innovation. Recently, ZF collaborated with Mercury Marine, in order to manufacture the first ever two-speed that comes with an automatic shifting of 600-horsepower Verado outboard. This is a groundbreaking innovation that is bringing a change that is evident. Furthermore, the hybrid-efficient transmissions models that are commercially available are the ZF 40,000, ZF 24,000, 11.000, 9000, 5000, and 3000 series and there is more to be expected. The major benefit of installing a hybrid transmission is to limit emissions in vessel operations.
Also, ZF is working on “smart” transmissions cutting-edge version, that will come with predictive maintenance options and remote tracking.
Stanley indicated that customers with the SIREN Marine tracking system onboard can easily connect to ZF transmission. The installation of this SIREN system was pretty easy and provides a customized ZF software model that enables operators to instantly carry out remote tracking if the transmission temperatures and pressures are transmitted within the network. Other amazing features will also be introduced and they’re eager to inform their customers.
The team at ZF is devoted to offer the best and most precise transmission system for their customers together with easy installation and future support whether they operate recreational or commercial vessels.
Stanley stated that they have up to 90 years of immense experience designing and manufacturing boats, and a crucial aspect of ZF’s DNA is that they are extremely efficient which is part of their major strength, apart from implementing innovative processes and technologies. ZF transmission is undoubtedly the best choice for all vessel owners.
