INSPECTION OF MAIN BEARINGS FOR S—K—L 60—80MC ENGINES

This is the instructional video produced and officially released for distribution by the B&W, one of the world leaders in production of the marine diesel engines. This film is devoted to the main bearings installed on the engines of S-K-L 60-80MC series.

It will demonstrate how to perform the inspection of the main bearings in the most effective and correct manner. The content of this video will be greatly appreciated by all crew members involved in the periodic maintenance and repair of these marine diesel engines as it provides invaluable visual instructions that will perfectly supplement the information obtained from the books and instruction/maintenance manuals for the engines.

The more information you have, the better will be the inspection you perform. An absolutely recommended one for the marine engineers working on the vessels with B&W engines installed.

HYDRAULIC TOOL — GENERAL USE

The video training developed and released by MAN B&W and explaining the general use and maintenance of hydraulic tightening tools.

You will get to know how to dismantle the hydraulic jack in a max possible proper and, what is most important, safest manner, see the process of mounting by use of hydraulic jack, etc.

This is an absolute must have training to be received by crew members dealing with such instruments since it will perfectly supplement any information one can find in the books - the experience shared is very useful and important.

Recommended to be watched by people whose day-to-day working activities imply use of the hydraulic tools.

HOW TO CHANGE A FUEL FILTER ON A MARINE DIESEL ENGINE

One more short yet quite useful training video film produced by BoatUS - Boat Owner Association of the US. Mark Corke, the associate editor of this world popular magazine, demontstrates in detail the steps to follow by persons wishing to change a fuel oil filter of a marine diesel engine by themselves.

It will serve as a good reference for crew members dealing with the periodical routine maintenance of the marine diesel engines, boat owners willing to improve their marine engineering skills. Just follow the steps described in this video film and you will definitely find it quite easy to perform all those basic operations on virtually any of the diesel engines you may find on board the boat or yacht.

HEAT EXCHANGER PRINCIPLES

This training file belongs to the IHRDC Video Library intended for Production Operators. The training video film is explaining the fundamental technical principles of heat exchanger operation... You know, when the diesel engines are running, they can really get hot. That is why, to keep them running, we need to remove the heat somehow.

Otherwise, the temperature will continue to rise and the engine will eventually get overheated - this results in the high temperature alarm/shutdown or, which is the worst case, in the damage occurring to the engine. That is where the engine radiator comes in.

As the engine is running, the cooling liquid which is stored in the radiator, is continuously circulating through the engine, picking up heat and then returns to the radiator. In short, this is what the radiator is there for - it forms an integral part of the cooling system...

HOW A THORDON COMPAC STERN TUBE BEARING WORKS

Here is a very short video animation briefly demonstrating the functioning of the sea water lubricated propeller shaft bearings by Thordon. Subject COMPAC bearings feature long and very predictable wear life and fifteen years of guaranteed service.

They have already proven effective in many commercial vessels - more than six hundred vessels today have Thordon sea-water lubricated bearings installed within their propeller shaft arrangements.

The vessel crew will not have to care about the leakage of oil from the bearings in case they get damaged since there is no oil used in them, and that is why there is no risk of environmental pollution.

They are also featuring much lower operating costs and offer many other advantages that will be appreciated by the ship owners...

GOTAVERKEN B&W K—90 GF ENGINE — STARTING AIR VALVE REPLACEMENT AND OVERHAUL

This is another introductory video film we have - it is expected to be very useful for crew members dealing with the everyday operation and maintenance of Gotaverken - B&W marine diesel engines. It shows step by step actions for the replacement and periodical overhaul of the starting valve of the subject engine.

The official release by the manufacturer. It is highly recommended to use the instruction book for the Gotaverken B&W K-90 GF for reference when watching this instruction film. In general, the process should consist of the following four steps: A - Stop the engine, B - Block the starting mechanism, C - Connect the turning gear, and D - Open the display cocks.

Note that we also have the instruction video addressing the replacement and overhaul of the fuel valve, also presented by Gotaverken so the users dealing with the maintenance and especially repair of these engines would better have both of these videos for their easy reference and use.

GOTAVERKEN B&W K—GF ENGINES — FUEL VALVE REPLACEMENT AND OVERHAUL

Here is a good instructional video produced by Gotaverken Burmeister & Wein specialists and devoted to the fuel valves installed on the K-KF engines and demonstrating the process of their replacement and overhaul. This operation has been described in the Instruction Book, as well - refer to the Volume 2 - Maintenance Parts 901-2, 909-8.

Before we commence the work, we must follow five safety measures, namely - stop the engine, block the starting mechanism by closing the tap for the starting air, connect the turning gear, open the display cocks, close the oil-supply tap. Once these operations have been satisfactorily completed, you can then begin the replacement of the fuel valve.

It is assumed that the following items are at hand - a normal tool kit, a replacement valve normally collected at the time of purchase from the stores, various cleaning/grinding materials. There are some special tools commonly required, such as the extractor and grinding and milling tools for the fuel valve. Note that we have another instructional video from Gotaverken covering the replacement and overhaul of the starting air valve.

GEA WESTFALIA — SEPARATION TECHNOLOGY

Short instructional animation showing how the separators work. Will be useful as a supplementary material to the theoretical resources. Here is the brief description of the separation process - Separator with bowl, drive, feed and discharge. The separation process takes place in the rotor.

A large clarification area in comparison to sedimentation by gravity is realized by conical discs and high g-forces. Ribs beneath the distributor accelerate the product. The product is fed into the rising channels and split up over a large number of disk interspaces. Due to the higher density the solids stream against the conical discs and slide to the solid holding space. The separated solids collect in the solids holding space.

The periodically activated sliding piston opens a gap for discharging the accumulated solids. The sliding piston closes hydraulically and the solids holding space can be filled up again. The clarified liquid streams to a central discharge channel towards the centripetal pump which is stationary and the liquid rotates. The clarified liquid is discharged under pressure through the discharge line...
