The range of marine steam turbine propulsion plants manufactured by Westinghouse Electric Corp in California is described. Details are given for the machinery in this family on order for APL and Farrell Lines. The turbines are of cross-compound type and the complete unit has an overall height of 19 ft 5 in. Steam supply is at 850-psig and 950 F and the steam exhausts at 28.5 in. of vacuum. Operating under these conditions, the turbine will require 183,000 lb/hr of steam and will deliver 134,000 lb to the condenser, the remainder being extraction steam. Major design features are explained for the high pressure turbine, the low pressure turbine, and astern turbine, and reduction gear.
