Re: Alfa Laval 615 Purifier

Hi,

I would start by checking the water supply, Check pressure, strainers and timing of the valves. Check the manual for fault tracing.

Re: Windlass not taking load on my ship, ideas to fix it

Is there any plugs to air it out? Check the manual for procedure to air it out. Check the relief valves on your control block if any? Is the brake releasing proper?

Good luck and regards

Re: Alfa Laval PU150 problem

How is the pressure sensor mounted could it be dirty or the pipes going to it? Did you check that you have the right flow rate/pressure on the water.

Re: Alfa Laval PU150 problem

Check the water valves and the water pressure, also air pressure for the 3 way valve. does it have nozzles in bowl? Change them out. Is the electrical motor frequency controlled? There could be issues there.

Re: Alfa Laval S846 HFO Separator problem

Hi,

Is it belt driven? Check the clutch pads and the surfaces for the pads, belt tension is also important. If it slips the bowl speed drops. Check the manual for number of pads to be used it can differ dependent of what set up you have.

Re: Dirty/brown/orange colour cooling water

Maybe take a sample of the water you are using and mix it with coolant and let it sit to see if it gets discoloured. Look into the chemical you are using is it the right type for the material used in the engine cooling system.

Maybe they didn’t fill out the right checklist? Try arrival departure and DP checklist? :roll:

Re: ALFA LAVAL HIGH SPEED LUBE OIL SEPARATOR

Check the centrifugal clutch if fitted, may need new pads or be worn out so it doesn’t clutch in at the right speed. Also check the temp of your oil.

Re: Transport Canada issues

I wrote my exams at Halifax office and everyone there was great! Very helpful. I find lots of it is how you approach them. They don’t make the rules they just try to follow them. Some guys go in with chip on their shoulder and argue with them about everything. Having said that I heard to stay away f...

Re: Taxes

Hi Xhead, If you live in Canada you have to pay tax here. The best way to do that is to put part of your pay aside and pay installments 4 times a year. If you don't they will ask for interest on the money you owe in taxes. If you work in an other country and pay tax there you can in most cases subtr...

Re: Common Rail Engine 48/60 cr
