MACHINERY ALARMS AND PROTECTION DEVICES

The poor maintenance and incorrect operating of the shipboard machinery may result in a disaster. Such disasters can be really catastrophic, presenting immediate danger to the health of the people onboard, cause harm to the environment, etc. However, most of the accidents can be avoided. The present video training lesson is intended to acquaint the trainees with the shipboard machinery alarms and protection devices.

Every person engaged in the operation and maintenance of any machinery piece on board ship shall have a sound understanding of these devices as they play a critically important role in providing safe and effective operation. Of course, the main reference shall be made by the engineers to the user manuals and other documents accompanying the machinery items.

However, there is a need for some general introductory information that would allow future marine engineers to have an idea of how important these devices are; the experienced engineers, in turn, may use this video to refresh their technical knowledge. Needless to say that it is a duty of every single person in the engine room to pay close attention to the protective devices and alarms installed on the machinery.

ADJUSTMENT OF THE MECHANICAL VIT—SYSTEM

One more instructional video from B&W specialists - the present film is devoted to the process of adjustment of the mechanical VIT-system. The VIT, standing for the variable injection timing, is a function of the diesel engine associated with the load-dependent adjustment of pressure developed in the combustion chamber and allowing to get to the maximum pressure during the part load helping to decrease the consumption of the fuel oil and also to reach to the efficient combustion.

The content of this training video will be of practical use to the personnel engaged in the operation and maintenance of the marine diesel engines with the VIT, and facing necessity to perform the associated adjustment. The explanation provided is very clear and will be understandable even to the people without too extensive experience with subject marine engines, who would like to use this video as a reference and supplementary training material. As it is the case with any other training videos from B&W, this one is remarkably informative and interesting, and will be appreciated by any engineer and student.

THE OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE OF INERT GAS SYSTEMS

We are all aware of the fact that absolutely all hydrocarbons including both oil products and crude oil are normally considered flammable. The IGS, standing for the inert gas systems, are installed on board ships with the purpose of preventing of the potential fires and explosions from happening. That is why they are treated as the critically important arrangements providing safety of the ship and her crew members.

The present training video will demonstrate and explain the main operating principles of the IGS. Taking into account the importance of the properly working and duly maintained inert gas system and the role it plays in the provision of the safe operation of the vessel, it is obvious that any crew member engaged in operation or maintenance of these systems shall have an absolutely clear understanding of its working principles and main components.

We would therefore recommend all such persons to pay serious attention to the content of this video and watch it very carefully. The video is interesting and easy to follow even for the newcomers on board.
