Diesel switch

  • Changeover from preheated HFO to cold MDO/ MGO and vice versa represents a risk of fuel pump sticking or seizure due to the very small clearances in the fuel pump.
  • The Diesel Switch is able to do the changeover in a controlled way so that rapid temperature deviations are avoided. 
  • The changeover between HFO and distillate fuels can give problems for the fuel equipment, the process will need a high degree of automation to avoid incidents. MAN Diesel now offers the Diesel Switch, which ensures the necessary the flexibility and safety when changing between HFO and MDO/MGO.

The principle of the Diesel Switch- 

  • MAN Diesel recommends to reduce the load to 25-40% to control the changeover. 
  • The Diesel Switch ensures a controlled and safe changeover independent of the engine load. 
  • The Diesel Switch operates on a combination of the temperature at the engine and the time.
  •  If the fuel temperature at the engine inlet exceeds 2 degrees/minute the Diesel Switch will give an alarm and put the process on hold.
  •  The process will be logged in the Diesel Switch so that it can be used as documentation to port authorities after the changeover.

The Diesel Switch offers:

  • Touch screen control panel
  • Control handle for the changeover
  • Safety
  • Data logging
  • Changeover valve 
  • Magnetic coupling
  • Integrated sensor for actual position 
  • Integrated sensors for end positions
  • Integrated connection box
  • Manual override 
  • Controlling an MGO cooler or chiller
  • Data logging of temperatures and pressures 
  • Remote operation with second touch screen

  1. I'm truly intrigued with your composing aptitudes and furthermore with the design on your weblog. Is this a paid subject or did you adjust it yourself? Whichever way keep up the decent quality composition, it is uncommon to see a pleasant blog like this one nowadays. Magnetic coupling

Why is a man hole door elliptical in shape?

Any opening in a pressure vessel is kept to a minimum and for a man entry an elliptical hole  is lesser in size than the corresponding circular hole. More over it is prime concern to have a  smoothed generous radius at the corners to eliminate stress concentration. Hence other  geometrical shapes like rectangle and square are ruled out.  To compensate for the loss of material in the shell due to opening, a doubler ring has to be  provided around the opening. The thickness of the ring depends on the axis length along the  dirrection in which the stresses are maximum and the thickness of the shell. It is important to  align the minor axis along the length of the vessel, as the stress in this direction is  maximum. Longitudinal stress: Pd/2t where P= pressure inside the vessel, d= diameter of the arc, t=  thickness of the shell plating  Circumferential stress: Pd/4t  More over a considerable material and weight saving is achieved as minor is along the  direction of maximum stress.

Shell Expansion Plan

It is a two dimensional drawing of a three dimensional surface of the ship’s hull form. This plan is very useful for the following information:It is used for marking the location of a hull Damage on this plan by identifying the strake number , letter and frame number so that the exact location of the damage and also suggested repairs are marked in a localised copy. The shell expansion can be used for finding areas of painting surfaces such as topside, boot topping and bottom areas by applying Simpsons rules directly.  In the shell expansion the vertical scale used is different from the horizontal scale and a suitable adjustment has to be made when calculating areas. This becomes useful in solving disputes concerning areas of preparation and painting. It gives information on the thickness of the original strake which is indicated by the number in the circle shown in the strake.  The quality of steel used is also shown by letters A,B,D E and AH, BH,DH, EH.
