Biggest Maxim Engine Silencer From Riley-Beaird For Allis-Chalmers

The largest Maxim® silencer ever fabricated by Riley-Beaird of Shreveport, La., for a reciprocating engine was completed recently and shipped to Allis-Chalmers Corporation in Milwaukee. More than 13 feet in diameter and standing more than 40 feet vertically when installed, the special unit weighs about 56,000 pounds.

This huge silencer was ordered by Allis- Chalmers' Marine Diesel Division for use in testbed running of the three A-C/Sulzer, 12 RND 90M, 43,200-bhp diesel engines being built for installation in three American President Lines containerships under construction at Avondale Shipyards near New Orleans.
