One of the main causes of accidents onboard ships is fire. This is because of the presence of high temperature, excess quantity of flammable oil and other combustible materials. A ship is approved to sail in international waters only if it is constructed as per Fire Safety System code and carries required fire fighting Appliances approved by the concerned authority .
Marine Air Compressor system used on board is very important to the marine engineer and without any air the ship would soon become a dead ship. The various parts of the compressed air system, be it the compressors, the pipe lines, or the air bottles have to be maintained in good condition.
The main use of refrigeration plants on ships is to keep cargo and food provisions at low temperature to prevent them from spoiling . The reefer plant is a combination of various machines such as compressor, valves, heat exchangers etc., which are connected to each other through pipes and joints.
The valve communicates at its end point with the flow pressure zone,the two zones being separated by a membrane whose function it is to interconnect the high and low pressure zones in the event of a break due to overpressure.In this manner,loss gas in the circuit is prevented.
Turnbuckles are a diverse product line that are used in a variety of applications across many different industries. They can be used in applications as simple as providing tension in a fence or perimeter cable, or something as complicated as the construction of a suspension bridge.
Most of the motors in the ship’s engine room are continuous running motors connected to a pump or compressor or some other machinery. Like any other mechanical machinery, motors also have their own running hours, after which, the complete overhauling of the motor is to be done to ensure efficient working and performance ...
