ISO - International Standards Organization

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies.

This organization has produced a standard (ISO 484/2) that defines the manufacturing tolerances for marine propellers.

ISO Tolerances on Pitch
Class
  S I II III
a) Local Pitch Pitch of one portion of one blade ± 1.5% ± 2% ± 3% -
b) Section Pitch Mean pitch of one radii of one blade ± 1% ± 1.5% ± 2% ± 5%
c) Blade Pitch Mean pitch of one blade ± 0.75% ± 1% ± 1.5% ± 4%
d) Propeller Pitch Mean pitch of all blades ± 0.5% ± 0.75% ± 1% ± 3%

The users of Prop Scan have found the ISO 484 standards a very fair method of propeller inspection.

Due to the Prop Scan measuring concept and advances in computer technology we have been able to enhance the ISO 484/2 specifications.
