EPS - Enhanced Propeller Standard  

Prop Scan EPS - (Enhanced Propeller Standard) is used in the correction and modification of propellers and has been developed by experts in the field to further enhance the well respected ISO 484 Standard.

  • Prop Scan EPS can measure propellers down to a 2" diameter.

  • In addition to local pitch measurements, Prop Scan EPS measures the complete pressure face and presents a tolerance band to control the face contour.

  • Prop Scan EPS adds an additional accuracy class (displayed in light blue).

Prop Scan EPS Features

A propeller is measured each degree of rotation on the pressure face resulting in the total section Face Camber being scanned. The following table displays the Prop Scan EPS Face Camber advantages.

The average propeller is approximately 57 degrees from leading to trailing edge

Prop Scan EPS takes 57 precise ‘looks’ (recorded measurements) at each measured section of a propeller for all ISO 484/2 Classes. These are in addition to the regulation ISO 484/2 Local Pitch measurements.

The ‘uncharted’ areas between the measurement points (5 for ISO 484/2 Class S) are now ‘looked at’, enabling problems in these areas to be corrected. This precision is in excess of the precision required for Navy propellers. Prop Scan EPS was developed for Navy repair contracts.
