Tailshaft Survey

Tailshaft Condition Monitoring System:
  • Complete tailshaft survey will be required if the last complete tailshaft survey was carried out more than five (5) years prior to the initial survey
  • For vessels with TCM notation, tailshaft survey interval required by 7-2-1/13.1.3 will be extended up to 15 years provided:
  • Annual surveys are carried out to the satisfaction of the attending Surveyor, and
The following are carried out at each tailshaft survey due date required
  • Bearing weardown measurement
  • Verification that the propeller is free of damage which may cause the propeller to be out of balance
  • Verification of effective inboard seal
  • Renewal of outboard seal in accordance with manufacturer’s recommendation
Complete tailshaft survey may be waived subject to satisfactory review of the following records for appropriate period as considered necessary
  • Stern bearing oil analysis records
  • Stern bearing oil consumption records
  • Stern bearing temperature monitoring records
  • Tailshaft, stern bearing assembly and propeller operation and repair records
  • Stern bearing clearance and wear down measurement records
Tailshaft Survey
METHOD 1

The survey is to consist of:
  • Drawing the shaft and examining the entire shaft, seals system and bearings
  • For keyed and keyless connections
  • Removing the propeller to expose the forward end of the taper,
  • Performing a non-destructive examination (NDE) by an approved surface crack detection method all around the shaft in way of the forward portion of the taper section, including the keyway (if fitted). For shaft provided with liners the NDE shall extended to the after edge of the liner.
For flanged connection:
  • Whenever the coupling bolts of any type of flange-connected shaft are removed or the flange radius is made accessible in connection with overhaul, repairs or when deemed necessary by the surveyor, the coupling bolts and flange radius are to be examined by means of an approved surface crack detection method
  • Checking and recording the bearing clearances.
  • Verification that the propeller is free of damages which may cause the propeller to be out of balance.
  • Verification of the satisfactory conditions of inboard and outboard seals during the reinstallation of the shaft and propeller.
  • Verification of the satisfactory conditions of inboard and outboard seals during the reinstallation of the shaft and propeller.

  • Checking and recording the bearing wear down measurements.
  • Visual Inspection of all accessible parts of the shafting system.
  • Verification that the propeller is free of damages which may cause the propeller to be out of balance.
  • Seal liner found to be or placed in a satisfactory condition.
  • Verification of the satisfactory re-installation of the propeller including verification of satisfactory conditions of inboard and outboard seals
Pre-requisites
  • Review of service records.
  • Review of test records of:
  • Lubricating Oil analysis (for oil lubricated shafts), or
  • Fresh Water Sample test (for closed system fresh water lubricated shafts).
  • Oil sample Examination (for oil lubricated shafts), or Fresh Water Sample test (for closed system fresh water lubricated).
  • Verification of no reported repairs by grinding or welding of shaft and/or propeller.

  1. Land surveying allows you to understand your land boundaries. A survey is performed in order to locate, describe, monument, and map the boundaries and corners of a parcel of land. It might also include the topography of the parcel, and the location of buildings and other improvements made to the parcel.Mobile Concrete Crushing Wrexham

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.
