S/S R&D Offers Brochure
On Fuel Oil Emulsifier
S/S Research & Development,
Inc., Perth Amboy, N.J., is offering a free color brochure on the "ENJR" Fuel Oil Emulsifier that was designed and patented by chief engineer Dannie B. Hudson of the company. The ABS- and USCG- approved unit, which was manufac- tured, developed and perfected by
S/S Research & Development, Inc., is unconditionally warranted for workmanship and material for one year.
The text of the brochure, which is illustrated with informative color photographs and diagrams, explains that water-in-fuel emulsion consists of small droplets of water sus- pended in oil. Water is injected at 60 psi during cavitation at pressures of 10,000 psi to 15,000 psi shear, and this system is capable of controlling water droplet size from one to 10 microns.
Emulsification is accomplished by the use of two fuel systems, and one water system and/or one fuel and one water system. This system mon- itors and maintains its fuel and water pressure automatically. Drop- let size may be changed by varying emulsion chamber pressure. The burning of emulsified fuel explodes the water droplets during initial combustion, exploding the oil into smaller particles, creating second- ary combustion. The flame changes in color, from orange center with black periphery to light-in-color flame in center and light brown periphery. Due to more complete combustion with the aid of water droplet explosions, the hard vana- dium scale does not build up. The "ENJR" system will remove the present vanadium, and clean a par- tially clogged fire side.
Some of the advantages of the "ENJR" system listed in the bro- chure are: reduced pollutants; re- duced excess air; reduction of sul- furic acid; reduced soot removal; savings in fuel consumption and boiler maintenance; pays for itself within 30 to 45 days; all components are of highest quality; systems are fabricated by certified welders, hy- drostatically tested and operational tested to ABS's satisfaction before shipment; and outstanding record of performance, efficiency and mainte- nance.
The brochure also contains a dia- gram of a typical installation that only requires the fuel system se- cured for a maximum of four hours.
The entire installation can be ac- complished in 24 hours, and the only adjustment to present boiler controls is air to oil ratio.

Sperry Gets $16.8-Million
Government Contract For
Shipboard Data System
The U.S. Department of Com- merce has awarded Sperry Corpora- tion a $16.8-million contract to pro- vide a new shipboard data system for the acquisition and processing of hydrographic information by the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
The system, know as the Ship- board Data System III (SDS III), will replace NOAA's current Hydro- plot/Hydrolog system that has been in use since 1970. The SDS III will provide NOAA with greater auto- mation in the acquisition of data, greater ability to verify the accuracy of that data while still at the survey site, and greater reliability.
The SDS III will consist of two separate but compatible systems: a
Data Acquisition System (DAS) that will be put aboard NOAA launches and other vessels; and a
Data Processing System (DPS) that will be aboard hydrographic survey mother ships and in land-based in- stallations.
Sperry will deliver 28 DASs and nine DPSs, with an option for the additional purchase of 20 DASs and 15 DPSs over six years. The con- tract also provides NOAA with the option to purchase separately addi- tional components of the systems.
