Ship's Main Engine Lube Oil System


Cleanliness of the lube oil is very vital in the Main Diesel Engine Lube
Oil System. A strainer is a device that is usually made up of a single layer of
course gauze, and a very course wire mesh. This setup is used to filter out
large objects that could cause blockage or damage to the lube oil system. A
filter is used to filter out much smaller particals. The filtering elements in
a lube oil filter has a more complex make-up. Aboard our ship, we have self
cleaning lube oil filters along with the standard lube oil filters.

The size of the cartridges in these filters usually range from 3-12 mm.
Our ship has two full flow filters per engine. The plates inside of a strainer
corrode and erode very easily. Special attention must be given to these plates
when cleaning them. Make sure that a gap has not formed at the end of the plate.
If there is a gap, rags and other particles may pass right by. If in doubt of
the condition of the plate, it should be renewed. The cost of a single plate is
much cheaper than the cost of cleaning out an entire clogged system.

All gasket surfaces must be checked closely to ensure a proper seal. Our
ship has a high pressure lube oil system. Because of this, basket type
strainers are used. Lube oil systems are equipped with a wide variety of
strainers. It is important to operate these strainers at all times to prevent

  • New Age of Technology
    New Age of Technology Technology and computers are increasing factors in the collision repair industry. With time being a concern for customers in many cases, the work we do has become easier to manage and faster to produce because of technology. Over the past ten years, equipment technology has increased our productivity. Today, a computerized management system helps you to quickly process repair orders, job costing, and management reporting. Some examples of this new technology are the Shark,
  • Poetry Review
    Poetry Review Although the poems Recalling War by Robert Graves and Mental Cases by Wilfred Owen are both concerned with the damage that war does to the soldiers involved, they are different in almost every other respect. Owen\'s poem examines the physical and mental effects of war in a very personal and direct way - his voice is very much in evidence in this poem - he has clearly seen people like the \'mental cases\' who are described. It is also evident that Owen\'s own experiences of the war

Mrs. Grose will do anything to gain control of Flora, as she proved when she murdered Peter Quint. He, along with Ms. Jessel, was too much of an influence on the children. Quint died somewhat my

    Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) is a relatively new disease found primarily in cattle. This disease of the bovine breed was first seen in the United Kingdom in November 1986 by histopathological examination of affected brains (Kimberlin, 1993) . From the first discovery in 1986 to 1990 this disease developed into a large-scale epidemic in most of the United Kingdom, with very serious economic consequences (Moore, 1996). BSE primarily occurs in adult cattle

Some of the more common screenings give information about the function of the kidneys, liver, and pancreas and about muscle and bone disease. There a

  • Aerosol Spray Cans
    Aerosol Spray Cans Spray cans produce an aerosol, the technical term for a very fine spray. They do this by means of a pressurized propellant, which is a liquid that boils at everyday temperatures. Inside the can, a layer of gaseous pressure increased, and eventually it becomes so high that boiling stops. when the nozzle is pressed, the gas pressure forces the product up the tube in the can and out of the nozzle in a spray or foam. The propellant may emerge as well but, now under less pressure,

Atoms having this property are called radioactive. By far the greatest number of uses for radioactivity

  • Computer Communications: Bus Network
    Computer Communications: Bus Network Bus Network, in computer science, a topology (configuration) for a local area network in which all nodes are connected to a main communications line (bus). On a bus network, each node monitors activity on the line. Messages are detected by all nodes but are accepted only by the node(s) to which they are addressed. Because a bus network relies on a common data “highway,” a malfunctioning node simply ceases to communicate; it doesn\'t disrupt operation as it mi

  • ACID RAIN
    ACID RAIN When fossil fuels such as coal, gasoline, and fuel oils are burned, they emit oxides of sulfur, carbon, and nitrogen into the air. These oxides combine with moisture in the air to form sulfuric acid, carbonic acid, and nitric acid. When it rains or snows, these acids are brought to Earth in what is called acid rain. During the course of the 20th century, the acidity of the air and acid rain have come to be recognized as a leading threat to the stability and quality of the Earth\'s envi

Although the ozone layer is surprisingly thin, it acts as a protective shield to the earth, as it filters out most of the harmful solar ultraviolet radiation (in particular UV-B) that w

    Terrorism 1) It is very difficult to resolve the international problem of terrorism for several major reasons. Terrorists usually don\'t claim responsibility for their actions until the fuse is lit, it\'s not a case of Jack The Ripper sending an ear to the cops and warning them who his next victim will be. Terrorists usually do claim responsibility for their actions after the media is aware that something happened, this gains recognition for their cause, which is often the reason they resort to

    Acid Rain Acid rain forms when sulfur and nitrogen dioxides combine with moisture in the atmosphere to produce rain, snow, or another kind of precipitation. This kind of pollution may also be suspended in fog or deposited in a dry form. Acid rain is most common in North America and Europe. Acid rain has also been detected in other areas of the world such as tropical rain forests of Africa. Canada has placed limitations on the sulfur emissions.

Cigarettes make people look bad because it is bad, but the ones who are really bad are the cigarette executives in their yachts laughing at people while they get cancer and make them rich. Smoking can cause many diseases and contain many chemicals that can cause cancer known as carcinogens. So should cigarette companies be able to advertise something that directly causes death?
