Marine Exhaust Systems G-19 water drop generator muffler

Equipment noise can quickly spoil the ambiance of even the most luxurious craft. Such problems are a thing of the past for lovely 130' Lady Kath, according to her captain, Bill Hipple. A new Marine Exhaust Systems G-19 water drop generator muffler significantly reduced genset exhaust noise, creating more peaceful days and nights for all onboard.

After the installation, Lady Kath's 65 kW naturally aspirated Northern Lights generator exhaust was only 74 dBA. This allows normal tone conversation. The G-19 water drop muffler accommodates gensets rated from 30-85 kW; 105 kW units are available on request.

This muffler's powerful sound-dampening capability belies its compact, low profile, one-piece design. It blends well into any engine room setup, whether on the hull side or the bulkhead, and accepts a wide variety of exhaust system configurations. With half the number of hoses and clamps of a conventional two-piece water separation arrangement muffler, the streamlined Marine Exhaust Systems unit reduces engine room clutter.

"Marine Exhaust Systems' water drop generator muffler is far superior to our boat's original equipment," said Capt. Hipple. "The sound level is now extremely pleasant, compared to what had been unbearable equipment that came with the boat. The fact that everything is contained in one unit makes it simple to install. It's also attractively priced," he said.

Some standard water lift mufflers can be noisy, as both exhaust gas and exhaust water exit above the waterline. The Marine Exhaust Systems water drop version combines a water/gas separator and muffler in one streamlined piece. It's a much quieter configuration, where water exhausts below the waterline and only a small above-the-waterline gas exhaust outlet is needed.

Made of a fire-retardant resin, the muffler features 316L stainless steel, crush-resistant rings at all hose connections. A bottom flange facilitates easy installation. Marine Exhaust Systems will tailor the position of the muffler's inlet/outlet locations to meet any application. The unit comes with a standard white fiberglass finish, and show-quality finishes are available on request.

Suggested retail prices for the Marine Exhaust Systems G-19 water drop generator muffler start at approximately $2,150. A top choice of boatbuilders and engine manufacturers, Marine Exhaust Systems meets the needs of the commercial, military and leisure yachting industries around the world. The company is dedicated to providing its customers innovative technology with reliable and efficient service and support.
