Hoffert Manufacturing Awards Caribbean Cruise At SNAME Exposition

Hoffert Manufacturing Co., Jacksonville, Fla., was an exhibitor at the recent First International Maritime Exposition held in New York and sponsored by The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers.

On Friday, November 19, Hoffert had a drawing for a four-day cruise for two onboard the S.S. Emerald Sea, of Eastern Cruise Lines, from Miami to the Caribbean.

Robert Mende, Secretary of SNAME, made the drawing and the winner was Joseph Wren III, vice president, engineering and construction of Amoco Transportation Co.

Hoffert manufactures "Fire-Brite," a Fuel Oil /Water Emulsification System for burning emulsified fuel in both marine and industrial boilers. Hoffert states "Fire-Brite" is guaranteed to keep the combustion system clean, reduce the oxygen level and lower the number of times necessary to blow tubes.

Hoffert has perfected a marine system which has been proven onboard many vessels including those operated by Amoco, Texaco, Delta Lines, Eastern Cruise Lines, US Gypsum Co., and the Military Sealift Command, to name a few. The systems aboard these vessels have both saved fuel and increased efficiency.

The emulsion is consistently in the one to two micron range thereby giving the most efficient burn, and the company reports it has the only system matching the unique turndown ratios necessary on a marine system.

Hoffert further states the "Fire-Brite" System pays for itself in that the payback is three to four months based on fuel, soot blowing, and maintenance savings.
