Volvo Penta Duo Props Type D: Die Cast Quality
Volvo Penta Duo Props Type D are made of aluminum, a lightweight and corrosion-resistant metal that helps engines achieve high fuel efficiency due to decreased weight for the propellers. Volvo Duo Props Type D can be used with engines that run on either gasoline or diesel fuel and are specifically intended for use with the DP-S drive. These duo props offer speeds as high as 35 knots.
Features of Volvo Penta Duo Props Type D
Each of the propellers on these duo props has been expertly die cast. This is important because when the blades of a propeller have been die cast, they have a more slender profile than blades that were fabricated using a sand casting method. Slimmer blades lead to reduced levels of cavitation as well as a longer effective life.
In addition, boaters will find that they the aluminum propellers on these duo props are dynamically balanced for high efficiency and excellent performance.
Type D Volvo Penta Duo Props, like all Volvo Penta propeller systems, are backed by the company’s excellent warranty, which guarantees the quality of the materials used as well as the workmanship that went into constructing the propellers.
