Vetus Type LP Waterlock with Rotating Inlet Information
The Vetus Type LP Waterlock is an engine exhaust waterlock for water injection cooled engines which collects the cooling water that is present in the exhaust system while the engine is stopped and also provides exhaust noise reduction.
This Vetus Waterlock also has a rotatable inlet connection, which greatly facilitates the installation of the exhaust assembly, and a drainage plug for removing the water during winter times and layup.
It can be quite beneficial to add a boat waterlock into the boat engine exhaust system, especially if the exhaust route travels near by the main living areas, such as the cockpit. By installing the marine exhaust waterlock it uses the density of the engine cooling water to 'absorb' the sound waves which are produced as a result of the exhaust gas flow. It also holds the exhaust cooling water that is present when the engine is stopped.
Why install an exhaust waterlock?
A boat engine exhaust waterlock helps to prevent water flowing back into the engine while the engine is stopped. It also helps to prevent water, on the outside of the boat, entering into the exhaust system and therefore the engine through the transome fitting.
