It removes 99.4% of all impurities... dust, dirt, sludge, water, acid and sulphur ash. It actually reconditions the oil. In fact. Phoenix Oil Refiner- equipped trucks have run over 500,000 miles without an oil change!

It's available in seven sizes for just about any application you can name.

Halter Marine Delivers

The Point Liberty To Point Express

Halter Marine, Inc., of New

Orleans, La., recently delivered the Point Liberty, the third of four 191-foot tug/supply boats to Point Express, Ltd., of Mor- gan City, La.

The Point Liberty is 191-feet long with a 40-foot beam and a 14-foot depth. She is powered by two EMD 16-645C diesel engines developing 1,950 hp each at 900 rpm. They drive two, 90-inch- diameter four-bladed propellers through Lufkin RHS 2120 re- verse/reduction gears with a ra- tio of 3.0:1.

The vessel's six Smatco tanks each carry 1,000 cubic feet of bulk mud and four additional tanks carry 1,344 barrels of liq- uid mud. Dry mud is moved through the system by a Gardner

Denver WCG air compressor and liquid muds are pumped by Mis- sion Magnum pumps.

Some of the Point Liberty's other capacities are: 61,000 gal- lons of fuel oil; 1,824 gallons lube oil; 165,400 gallons ballast water; and, 16,888 gallons of fresh wa- ter. Her aft deck has nearly 4,000 square feet of cargo space.

There are two Westinghouse equipped control stations aboard and a 56-point engine alarm sys- • tem provided by EMI. The hy- draulic steering system was man- ufactured by SSI. The vessel's maneuverability is enhanced by a

Bird-Johnson model 20 bow- thruster driven by a Detroit Die- sel 8V71 diesel engine through

Capitol reverse/reduction gears.

The main switchboard and distri- bution panels were built by Con- tinental Electric.

Auxiliary power is supplied by two Detroit Diesel 8V71-N die- sel engines generating 125 kw.

Two Quincy model D325 air com- pressors provide compressed air for diesel engine starting, the 34 Write 360 on Reader Service Card pneumatic control system, air whistle, sea chest, and ship service.

Aurora pumps service bilge, ballast, fuel transfer, and the on- ship fire-fighting system while

Viking pumps handle oily bilge and fuel oil standby. The fuel oil separator model OTB-2-OO- 066 was manufactured by West- falia and supplied by Marine

Engineering, Inc., of Belle Chase,

La. The sanitary water system contains a Deming pressure set with a vertical 82 gallon tank.

Water closets drain into a Micro- phor MC-200 sewage treatment system.
