First Lucander-Designed Tug Nozzle Built By ideal Machine

Ideal Machine & Manufacturing, Inc. of Tacoma, Wash., has recently completed the first "Kort" type nozzle to a new design and construction system developed by Tacoma designer Nils Lucander. This nozzle was built for a new 41-foot tug also designed by Mr. Lucander. It has an inside diameter of 4512 inches and will house a 45-inch Coolidge Kaplan style propeller.

The new construction system is said to reduce forming costs, allowing ideal Machine to build nozzles at considerably lower costs than industry standards, yet provide very high quality.

While the first nozzle was made to fit a tug, all sizes from 16 inches to 15 feet inside diameter can be produced, to fit all kinds of vessels including offshore tugs, fishing trawlers, and yachts.

Both type 19-B and 37, the latter for better reverse, will be custom-designed and made to order. They are built of steel with stainless steel wear plate, sandblasted and prime painted ready to install.
