100,000-dwt Floating

Dry Dock Increases

HUD's Tsing Yi Capacity

Ships of up to 100,000 dwt can be docked at Hongkong United

Dockyards Ltd.'s (HUD) Tsing

Yi Yard, following an agreement signed recently for HUD to char- ter Euroasia Shipyards' floating dock, which has a lifting capacity of 32,800 tons.

The move increases HUD's float- ing docks to three, including the ship repair company's existing

Whampoa and Taikoo docks of 20,000 and 11,500 tons lifting ca- pacity, respectively. The bareboat charter means that Euroasia is leasing only the dock itself; HUD will man the unit with its own labor force.

With a recent major overhaul to bring it into Lloyd's class, the dock has a length over keel blocks of 258.15 meters, and an internal width of 38.55 meters (847 by 126.5 feet), enabling it to accom- modate the largest ships normally likely to visit Hong Kong. "I am delighted to add this large dock to our major new fa- cilities at Tsing Yi," said David

Hall, managing director of HUD, "as it will allow us to broaden our activities in the repair of larger ships, consolidate our total facilities at Tsing Yi, and help finalize plans for the future ex- pansion of our new dockyard."

On Foxboro's New

On-Line Ferrograph

Foxboro Analytical, a Division of The Foxboro Company, has just published a Product Specification

Sheet for its new Model 958PF

July 15, 1980 on-line ferrograph. Through mon- itoring of the level of wear debris within a lubricating or hydraulic system, this new instrument is said to provide early warning of incipient failure in a wide range of machinery.

Wear debris is separated from the oil by a high-gradient mag- netic field, and quantitative meas- urement of the debris is achieved by a surface effect capacitive sen- sor. As separation of the debris is such as to provide a distribution according to size, two quantita- tive measurements are made to provide information on size dis- tribution and total debris concen- tration within the system.

Applications include marine propulsion and auxiliary machin- ery, gas turbines, gear boxes and transmissions, large critical bear- ings, hydraulic systems, and off- shore production rigs.
