Marine Auxiliary Machinery, Seventh Edition is a 16-chapter text that covers the significant advances in marine auxiliary machinery relevant to the certification of competency examinations.
The introductory chapters deal with the basic components of marine machineries, such as propulsion system, heat exchanger, valves, and pipelines. The succeeding chapters describe the pumps and pumping system, specifically the tanker and gas carrier cargo pumps. Considerable chapters are devoted to the operation of machinery’s major components, including the propeller shaft, steering gear, auxiliary power, bow thrusters, and stabilizers. Other chapters consider the refrigeration, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. The final chapters tackle the safety system of marine auxiliary machinery, particularly the fire protection, safety, instrumentation, and control systems.
This book will prove useful to marine and mechanical engineers.
