A part of Northern Engineering

Industries, NEI Clarke Chapman is a long-time supplier of deck cranes, winches, and windlasses. Despite the general recession in shipping, the company has been expanding its production and work force, largely by taking advantage of opportuni- ties in the offshore industry.

A joint venture company has been formed with the Australian Aquila

Company to manufacture offshore cranes for the North Sea industry and mooring equipment. The com-

Perkins Engines in Peterborough,

England, is a world leader in the design, manufacture, and marketing of diesel engines, including marine diesels in a range from 40 to 800 bhp, and outputs from 25 to 825 kva for generating duty.

In March 1984 Perkins acquired the diesel engine business of Rolls-

Royce Diesels International based at Shrewsbury, which raised its top output for propulsion engines from 350 to 800 bhp. The Shrewsbury engines are well suited for heavy- duty workboats, with conservative long-life ratings and appropriate op- tions such as clutched power takeoffs. Also incorporated are ser- vice features allowing long periods of continuous operation.

The Shrewsbury engines also compete effectively in the light- duty commercial and pleasure sec- tors, where their efficient design, (continued on page 34)

DOUBLE DIAPHRAGM PUMPS offer • No Electrical Connections • Abrasion Resistant • Self priming • Submersible • Variable volume and pressure • Portable • Simple Clamp band construction • Write for free literature and prices

In Water. one stands alone

It also stands up to chemicals, grout, resin, oil, glue and low density powders.

The heart of the Wilden air-oper- ated double diaphragm pump is its unique air valve which shifts the air supply to both dia- phragms alternately with com- plete reliability under all condi- tions of head and flow.

Up to 90% solids and over 250' heads are no problem for the

WILDEN PUMP. Our double diaphragm design cuts velocity in pump to half total discharge velocity. The most abrasive slur- ries are handled with ease since there are no seals and no metal to metal contact.

Volume is infinitely variable by controlling air flow to pump, from a few gallons per minute to over 14,000 gallons per hour. No pressure relief valve is required and the pump can run dry inde- finitely.

Wilden pumps are available with wetted parts in aluminum, cast iron, stainless steel, and Hastel- loy C. Non-wetted parts in alu- minum or cast iron. Elastomers in Neoprene, Buna N, Nordel,

Viton®, and Teflon®.
