An Overview of Purifier Separators and Their Uses and Applications

December 3rd, 2021

Let’s face it turbine lubricants handle lots of stress. In ship systems, beleaguered marine turbines run hot. The moving parts rub against each other and cause huge pressure spikes to propagate through the innermost chambers of the machinery. There’s a heap of fluid and mechanical energy in play in there, but an enhanced oily substance […]

How to Regulate Your Shipboard’s Fuel Lines with High-Quality Marine Valves and Fittings

November 5th, 2021

Fuel lines are threading their way past equipment blocks in the engine room. Hydraulic tubes are zipping along a wall to a workshop, where the pressurised gas powers groups of tools. A branching line heads below decks, perhaps making a beeline towards the generator starter. Then there are cold water and superheated steam, boilers, and […]

Most Common Reasons Why Marine Engine Generators Encounter Mechanical Failure

October 27th, 2021

Here’s a system failure scenario that sometimes keeps marine engineers up at night. If a ship generator fails to start, what’ll happen to the boat and its crew? There are no street lights or grid electricity connections in the middle of an ocean, so that power generating equipment had better operate. Working proactively, conscientious ship […]

The Importance of Oil-Lubricated Stern Tube Bearing in Marine Machineries

October 14th, 2021

A stern tube is the watertight tube enclosing and supporting the propeller shaft. It comprises a cast-iron or projected steel cylinder fitted with a bearing surface within which the propeller shaft, encased in a sleeve, pivots. The stern tube is installed from toward the back and dashed to the stern casing chief. It very well […]
