Pump Components: Volutes, Casings, and Impellers

When you boil them down to the most fundamental components, pumps are made up of two components: An impeller which creates velocity through rotation, And a casing which converts velocity into pressure. There are different types of impellers and different types of casings. The way that different types of impellers and casings are combined produces all of the different types of pumps. Types of Pump Casings There two basic types of pump casings: volutes and diffusers. Whether we’re talking about volutes or diffusers, what all casings have in common is that they are designed to take energy in the form of … Continue reading Pump Components: Volutes, Casings, and Impellers

Propeller System: Bolt Tightening for Propeller Blade!

We will talk about How to tight for bolts of blades after assembly! Have some method to do it. But in this topic we will say a simple way to do it & not need modern equipment or tools to do. We will use chain locker! We will take an example for easy understand! 1.Mounting propeller blades: Blades marked according to above figure , Aft view. Mounting sequence: 1-3-2-4. 2. Bolt tightening for blade: – Both pre-tighten and final tighten of the blade bolts with can be done by using socket adapter and ring spanner (a chain block suspended wrench) … Continue reading Propeller System: Bolt Tightening for Propeller Blade!

General about Marine Fuels!

Marine fossil fuels: The majority of the existing and proposed marine fuels are of the same origin. The same fuel composition may be available from renewable sources (e.g. natural gas – bio gas, methane…) but here only the most common are taken into consideration. + How is a crude oil feld formed? The generally accepted theory is that crude oil was formed over millions of years from the remains of plants and animals that lived in the seas. As they died, they sank to the seabed, were buried with sand and mud, and became an organic-rich layer. Steadily, these layers … Continue reading General about Marine Fuels!
