Systems On Engines Part – 4

Fuel Oil Service System: Once the oil is purified and stored in the day tanks, the fuel is drawn to the engine through the service system. The system consists of the following components. Fuel oil circulation pumps:  They have a… Continue Reading →

Systems On Engine – Part 3

Fuel Oil System: Very low-grade fuels are used on Marine Diesel Engines (which are available at low cost) to reduce the fuel cost. These Fuels contain impurities in the form of water and sediments and hence, they are to be purified… Continue Reading →

Systems On Engine Part – 2

Lubricating oil System: There are a number of components on the engine (like crank pin bearing, crankshaft bearings, camshaft bearings, various moving components etc) which are to be constantly lubricated. Most of the bearings are made of white metal and any… Continue Reading →

Systems On Engine Part – 1

Any diesel engine will have the following systems which are essentially required: Cooling System Lubricating oil system Fuel Oil System Exhaust System Starting System. Let’s straight dive into understanding how cooling system works. Fresh Water Cooling System: The cylinder jackets of the… Continue Reading →

VAPOUR COMPRESSION DISTILLATION PLANTS (VCDs)

VCD plants are provided on ships where the engine power are less and sufficient heat is not available in the engine cooling water system for producing fresh water in large quantities. These plants are completely independent of other systems and normally… Continue Reading →

Fresh Water Generators

Freshwater generators are provided on board the ships for producing fresh water from sea water by distillation process: There are two types of fresh water generators: A) Vacuum Distillation Plants B) Vapour Compression Distillation Plants (VCDs) VACCUM DISTILLATION DISTILLATION PLANTS: In… Continue Reading →

Hot Water System for Ships

This system provides hot water for showers and other areas in the accommodation spaces. The system consists of two hot water circulation pumps (one working + one standby), two geysers (heaters), normally one working on steam and the other on… Continue Reading →

Operation of Oil Burner

The oil burner consists of a forced draught fan oil pump and nozzles. Depending on the number of nozzles, the burner is designated as a single stage or two stage or multi-stage burner.The fuel oil pump boosts the pressure of… Continue Reading →

STEAM SYSTEM

Steam is used on ships for the following purposes: As working medium for driving steam turbines where steam turbines are used for propulsion. For heating of fuel oil (oh high viscosity) in tanks to reduce viscosity. For geysers in accommodation… Continue Reading →
