IMPROVING WASHING AND CLEANING OPERATIONS IN SHIP REPAIR

Many ship repair yards pay insufficient attention to the cleaning and washing of ship mechanisms. The list of ship parts to be washed and cleaned is quite varied. It includes fuel heaters, oil coolers, condensers, fittings, valves, electrical equipment and machinery. A constant concern of machine assembly shops is the cleaning of large parts of main engines and auxiliaries. The kinds of dirt that must be dealt with are also quite numerous. The washing equipment in use at ship repair yards is rather diversified, and some of the equipment and techniques used are described. The author calls for the centralization of washing and cleaning jobs in a specialized area in order to increase their efficiency. A possible layout for such an area is illustrated.
