OMEY have developed a single-design product range to best meet most needs of ocean research laboratories. It is low-cost, because the design and manufacturing process is repeated and refined. Versatile because it is modular and movable.
The wave tank dimensions are selected for the best use of standard materials, manufacturing and transport constraints, while still meeting most wave flume test needs.
The design is nominally pitched in the range of 1:50th to 1:100th scale of North Atlantic seas, with working width of 2.5m, and nominal working depth of 1.3m. Being modular, any tank length can be setup.
The tank modules are designed for convenience, and versatility. Tank modules are shipped from stock, by shipping container. Once on site the modules can be on loaded by conventional (2T) forklift and moved into place.
The modules fit through most conventional double doors.
Each module incorporates steel feet to distribute the weight of the full tank adequately for most concrete floors (0.12MPa).
The wave maker requires a conventional single phase 240v AC or three phase 208v power supply.
