Fetterolf's Specialty

Assembly Valve

Eliminates Field-Welding

Fetterolf Corporation, Skippack,

Pa., long an expert in specialty valves, has the capacity to assemble standard and custom valves into piping systems. The valves can be permanently installed into flanged or weld-end piping sections, allow- ing the customer to custom-design the assembly to meet his specific needs as a prefabricated piping sec- tion. Both the piping section and the valve may be head-jacketed for appropriate temperature control if desired.

Fetterolf's Ram-Seal® piping/ valve assemblies provide clog-free sampling and drain capability while eliminating field-welding of valves into piping systems. Dead tight shut-off with pressures to 6,000 psi and temperatures to 1,000 degrees F are standard features in Ram-Seal valves.

Avondale Unit Wins $4-Million Contract

To Build High-Speed Ferry

The Boat Division of Avondale

Industries, New Orleans, La., was recently awarded a $4-million order to build the second in a series of high-speed, surface-effect passenger ferries for Tri-State Marine Trans- portation, New York, N.Y.

The 109-foot "Air Ride" passen- ger ferry, designed by Air Craft,

Inc., will be able to travel at speeds in excess of 40 knots. She will be powered by twin 16-cylinder Deutz

MWM 604B series diesel engines.

The first vessel in this series is expected to be delivered by Avon- dale shortly.

Integrated Bridge Control

System Offered By Valmet —Literatured Available

Valmet Automation a.s., Norway, has developed a computer-based, integrated bridge control system for medium- and slow-speed engines.

Based on experience from the in- tegrated automation system, Dam- atic Marine System, which com- prises monitoring and control of main and auxiliary engines, the new bridge control system has been de- veloped according to the same prin- ciples with regard to both hardware and software.

The system is called Damatic RC and is currently available in two basic models: Damatic RC-1 for slow-speed engine with fixed pro- peller; and Damatic RC-2 for me- dium-speed engine, but also multi- engine installations.

Damatic RC is an integrated bridge control system which com- prises all controls of the main en- gine, including safety shutdown sys- tem. In addition, the RC-2 includes a propeller pitch control system.

Damatic RC was developed in close cooperation with one of the world's leading engine manufactur- ers who has stipulated stringent re- quirements for performance and quality, and operations and safety during maneuvering of ships. All essential control and safety func- tions therefore have a built-in "hot- backup" which takes over automati- cally upon faults in the main sys- tem. The backup system operates like the main system, and has the same functions built in. The opera- | tor, therefore, does not notice any difference when the backup system | takes over. This applies to both the control and shutdown functions.

I Damatic RC is one of the first sys- tems on the market that has this as | standard.
