INNOVATIVE SOLUTION FOR SEA WATER INTAKE AND COOLING

According to classification societies the intake of sea water through sea chests constitutes a risk factor, and entails several extra requirements to prevent leakage. The conventional location of sea chests in the forward end of the engine room causes severe problems in providing adequate room for necessary equipments, such as valves, filters, pumps, and large pipelines. The new JAK system has been designed to eliminate these problems. The article discusses the advantages of the system: better construction of the sea chest; optimum flow/quantity of sea water at all time acc. to actual load of the machinery; and optimum controls and balance of sea water temperature and pressure in the system.
