Siemens Off-Delay Timing
Relays Are Compact,
Reduce Panel Space
Siemens 7PU electronic off-delay timing relays are compact to reduce panel space when used in control, starting and protection circuits for switching operations involving off- delay timing functions. They fea- ture long life of 30 million opera- tions, accuracy of ±1% and less than 3% drift.
Siemens 7PU timing relays are
UL-listed and meet NEMA, VDE,
CSA and IEC standards. They are suited for conventional panel mounting or integral DIN snap-on rail mounting.
Siemens electronic timing relays rated operating voltages are 24, 120 and 240, 60 Hz and 24, 110 and 220, 50 Hz. Operating time ranges from

New High-Pressure Ball
The Contromatics Commercial
Division recently introduced down- stream-seal, three-piece, two-way,
Vi -inch through 2-inch B Series 3,000-5,000 psi, -20° F to 180° F ball valves with long-life, low-fric- tion Delrin AF® seats and lower stem seals.
The new high-pressure Contro- matics ball valves feature 316 stain- less steel balls and 17-4 PH stems.
The downstream seals minimize seat damage and lower torque. The self-compensating stem allows for normal wear and temperature fluc- tuations. The three-piece design minimized installed cost, while the drop-in center section design re- duces in-line maintenance costs.
Contromatics quarter-turn high- pressure ball valves also feature a double locknut, high-rise handle for easy manual operation. For auto- matic operation, Contromatics high- pressure ball valves may be fur- nished with pneumatic and electric actuators.
Standard construction materials are carbon steel. Options include choice of Buna, EPR, Viton, and
Neoprene body seals.

Third Chesapeake Marine
Set For January 1988
The Third Chesapeake Marine
Engineering Symposium, sponsored by the Chesapeake Section of
SNAME every two years, is to be held at the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington, Va., on January 28, 1988, in conjunction with the joint meeting of SNAME and ASNE on
The purpose of this symposium is to provide a forum for technical presentations, discussions and dia- logue concerning the field of marine engineering. Papers will be pre- sented in four areas of specializa- tion: survivability; propulsion/elec- trical; operation and maintenance; and fluid systems/firefighting.
The registration cochairmen are
Lt. Comdr. Jeffrey Lantz, USCG, and Lt. Comdr. John Grenier,
USCG. Reservations can be made by calling either at (202) 267-0577.

MARITIME INDUSTRY CENSUS
Order your copy now of the most complete and comprehensive census in our industry. Included in the census are details and statistics on vessel operations (ocean going, inland, harbor, offshore), offshore drilling, U.S. and foreign Navies, shipbuilding and ship repair (commercial and military).
A review of the census reveals the major role played by the U.S. ship owners/operators and the
U.S. Navy in our industry.
Months of research went into tracking down true ownership of the world's commercial fleet and as evidenced by the results of the census, U.S. corporations own and control the largest portion of the world's merchant vessels. Also examined by the census is the increasing role being played by the U.S. Navy as the industry's largest consumer of marine products.
In preparing this census, hundreds of reference sources were utilized, including MARITIME
REPORTER'S Research Department and Circulation Data Base, U.S. and Foreign Governments,
United Nations, Personal Interviews, Lloyd's Register, Industry Directories, etc. (Vital information not available anywhere else in the industry).
