An excellent and very useful publication that will be greatly appreciated not only by the students of marine engineering but also by the practicing marine engineers who will be able to use it as a ready reference resource. The content of the handbook was developed by the specialists of the JMEA, i.e. Japan Marine Engineers' Association. It is absolutely imperative that all seafarers are well aware of the working principles and proper handling of all shipboard valves.
They shall also be duly familiar with the arrangements of the piping on board their vessel. This will eventually contribute in the prevention of oil spills or any other environmental pollution. Note that handling would also imply bunkering and changing fuel oil tanks, ballasting and de-ballasting operations, and so many other day-to-day activities.
The seafarers are therefore expected to pay attention to the valve and pipe arrangements. Every effort was made by the authors of the present book to provide easily understandable explanations and descriptions in order to let crew members familiarize themselves with all basic structures and materials as well as the roles of the equipment and allow them to operate the vessel in a safe and efficient way.
