Latest Garbage Treatment
Systems For Cruise Ships
International regulations for pre- vention of pollution by garbage from ships have become much more stringent in recent years, requiring the installation of an effective on- board garbage handling and inciner- ation system.
Norsk Hydro Environmental and
Energy Systems, which has many years of experience in engineering and manufacturing of waste-han- dling systems, has published a full- color brochure on cruise ship waste treatment plants tailor-made to achieve maximum effect and best economy.
State-of-the-art combustion tech- nology as used in the Norsk Hydro multi-chamber partial pyrolytic ma- rine incinerators precludes the em- issions of black smoke, fly ash, mal- odors or toxic substances. The waste handling system has been developed into an automated process—gar- bage is fed into the system as close as possible to where it is generated and subsequently not seen again.
The sterile ash is automatically and continuously removed from the in- cinerator and discharged to the sea.
Shipboard corrosion problems solved.
Aeroquip engineers, working with the Navy on corrosion resistance technology for the DDG51 program, developed a line of noncorrosive Monel and stainless steel reusable fittings.
In addition to solving the corrosion problem, the Aeroquip designed hose fittings also extend service life and quickly refit at sea. Replacement fittings are not necessary. With Aeroquip reusable fittings, "inventory" is already in place on the old fluid line.
This corrosion resistance technology and product development solves the needs of shipbuilders everywhere. A range of reusable fittings in sizes from 3/8" to 10" are available. Configurations include 90° doglegs, male O-Ring seals, and 150 pound and 600 pound commercial flanges. If you have other requirements, call us and we'll team you with our engineers to solve your problem.

A typical automated plant on board a modern cruise ship is dia- grammed in the brochure, and equipment necessary for the plant is listed for dry burnable gargage, non- burnable garbage, and wet garbage.
Each individual system can be fitted to existing vessels already in opera- tion or vessels under construction.
Hydro also provides project or- ganization, installation supervision, startup, training and after sales service.

Unitor Buys Singapore
Unitor Ships Service AS, an inter- national ship's supply company based in Kolbotn, Norway, recently acquired Leading Engineering &
Refrigeration Pte. Ltd., one of
Singapore's largest marine refriger- ation companies.
Lee Fook Choy, owner and manager, will continue to manage
Leading Engineering & Refrigera- tion, which has an annual turnover of more than $2.5 million.
The purchase increases Unitor ca- pacity to perform more conversions of shipboard reefer plants from sys- tems using environmentally harm- ful refrigerants to more environ- mentally friendly systems, the com- pany said. During the past year,
Unitor has focused on this area, and is setting up special service stations to carry out conversions. By the end of 1990, the company said 16 con- version service stations would be in 16 ports worldwide.

Bailey Controls Guide
Details Steam Generator
Emission Control Units
A new application guide, entitled "Combustion Zone NOx Control
Systems for Utility and Industrial
Steam Generators", is now available from Bailey Controls. The publica- tion discusses the benefits of apply- ing state-of-the-art control system technology to NOx formation, in- cluding potential fuel savings.
The guide outlines how advanced control strategies can enhance per- formance, and offers a section on conventional and advanced control strategies. There is also a detailed, yet concise explanation of the chem- ical processes involved in formation of oxides of nitrogen.
The publication outlines a variety of popular NOx control approaches, including Burners-Out-Of-Service,
Overfire Air, Water Injection, Flue
Gas Recirculation and others, for the most commonly used fuels.
