The BLUESTREAM technology is the key feature on TYPE 22 trawl doors. By developing a more fluent and efficient waterflow we have succeeded in bringing this revolutionare invention to the world’s fishermen. More spread for less resistance, simply as said.
This means fisherman can downsize to the smaller sized BLUESTREAM Type 22 doors and increase their trawling efficiency. The smaller sized, more efficient door increases the spreading force and decreases the resistance by more than 50% which translate into significant fuel savings. The impressive fuel savings and performance of the BLUESTREAM Technology has already been proven on several fishing vessels all over the world.
The BLUESTREAM trawl doors are a totally versatile high aspect trawl door. These doors can be used for all kinds of fishing set-ups including bottom fishing, semi-pelagic fishing “flying doors off the bottom” and direct pelagic fishing after species as mackerel, herring, blue whiting, or sprats. The design of the TYPE 22 VF can be customized and a keel with wear shoes can be added to suit and last longer for bottom trawling.
The TYPE 22 has already proven itself by its eye-catching performance on several state-of-the-art fishing vessels. Both inside and outside of European waters.
As one of our patented features, the TYPE 22 also comes as a FLIPPER model. With the flipper function it is possible to reduce the surface area of the trawl door by opening 1, 2, 3, or 4 flaps in the door. This offers a lot of adjustment possibilities for many different fishing setups and provides extremely high stability when fishing deep or fishing very close to the surface with a lot of turns. Furthermore, this feature can increase the efficiency of the trawl doors even more than with only the BLUESTREAM technology implemented. . Furthermore, the pitch and roll of the trawldoor can be controlled, when reducing the size of the trawl doors, either in the top or the bottom. This feature will make it easier working the doors in deeper or shallow water or in strong tide.
Type 22 comes in the following models:
- TYPE 22 VK / FLIPPER
- TYPE 22 VF / STANDARD
- TYPE 22 VFB / BOTTOM
Both the TYPE 22 can be custom made in different aspect ratios with adjustable weight to suit customer needs.
