The velocity (or flow rate) of the fluid that circulates through a typical shell and tube heat exchanger is extremely important. Not only can it have a direct bearing on the heat transfer efficiency of the heat exchanger, in instances where the incorrect flow rate is used, it is often the cause of premature failure…Read Article
Essential Reading for Keeping Cool
In just a few years, electric and hybrid propulsion has gone from an industry in its infancy, to being adopted as a mainstream propulsion option by many sectors of the marine industry. Whilst this increasing level of acceptance is often driven by emissions legislation in many parts of the world, there are also numerous operational…Read More
Keep cool to extend life and maintain performance
Whilst electrical propulsion systems are generally more tolerant of temperature increases, compared to traditional combustion engines, there is an important area where higher temperatures can have a detrimental effect on the performance of the components within a drivetrain. Tests undertaken by leading manufacturers show that in order to maintain performance and extend the operating life…Read More
Bowman marine oil cooler saves a small fortune!
The original oil cooler on the Volvo Penta engine of David Berry’s Moody Eclipse 33 was manufactured from a brass tube stack in an aluminium housing. The metal had gradually corroded over its life until it leaked water, with potentially disastrous results. The OE replacement part was listed at around £700*, so Mr Berry decided…Read More
