De Laval Separator Issues Marine Brochure

Purification and thermal equipment for marine and offshore use are illustrated and described in a new 12-page brochure now available from The De Laval Separator Company.

The equipment is designed for unmanned operation aboard ships and on drilling platforms. It can be provided in configuration ranging from single units to multistage installations with instrumentation and automation for remote-controlled, unmanned engine rooms.

Featured in the brochure are centrifuges for fuel and lube oil purification, including a new WHPX controlled-discharge separator that can save users up to 40 percent annually in separation costs and pay for itself in as few as nine months. Other products shown include plate heat exchangers for cooling and heating oils and water, NIREX™ distillers for fresh-water production, and upflow IMMEDIUMFILTERS® for water-flood applications on offshore platforms. All equipment stresses low operator involvement and minimum maintenance requirements so as to be suitable for unmanned engine rooms.

Careful explanations and detailed diagrams afford a full understanding of the method of operation and application, as well as cost and labor-saving features of the De Laval equipment.

Copies of Bulletin #1714 may be obtained by writing to Robert Wimmer, The De Laval Separator Company, Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
