Brochures On Alarms,

Controls, Switches

Frank W. Murphy Mfr. has been producing various gages, alarms, control devices and switches for marine engines and equipment for over 50 years.

Murphy gages include tempera- ture, pressure/vacuum and fluid level gages and are made with their own shutdown devices when appli- cable. If the operating levels of dif- ferent gages are too high or too low the shutdown devices will activate to prevent costly engine damage.

These products allow for fewer people to run an engine room effi- ciently.

Murphy also produces speed con- trol gauges which monitor engine rpm and are controlled by Murphy electronic tachometers.

Various types of instrument and alarm panels can be custom-made according to specific needs. The company also offers various types of control systems, valves and alarm systems to augment their products.

MarAd Awards Funds

To N.Y. Maritime

For Simulator Purchase

The Maritime Administration recently announced the award of $581,000 to the State University of

New York Maritime College at Ft.

Schuyler, New York, to assist the college in its procurement of a full bridge simulator.

The assistance was authorized as one part of Mar Ad's program to as- sist the six state maritime acad- emies in the United States. In 1992, a total of $1.2 million in appropri- ated funds is available to the schools as matching funds to purchase simu- lators; an additional $800,000 will be made from the sale of obsolete vessels for scrap from MarAd's Na- tional Defense Reserve Fleet (NDRF). The New York Maritime

College is the first academy to re- ceive these funds.

Under this system, the maritime college will select the simulation equipment that is best suited for their programs. The colleges are required to raise and commit their own share of the necessary funds prior to receiving a matching amount from MarAd.

In announcing this award, Cap- tain Warren G. Leback, maritime administrator, said: "New York

Maritime College and its president,

Adm. Floyd H. Miller are to be congratulated for their successful efforts to raise funds for this new simulator. Computer-driven simu- lator equipment represents the cur- rent state-of-the-art in teaching aids, especially for high technology sys- tems like modern oceangoing ships.

We are pleased to be able to offer this substantial assistance to New

York Maritime College." /V I Mackay f

Whether you own a small boat or a large ship, pre-heating your engine has some distinct advantages you should consider. "White smoke" is virtually eliminated on start-up. Noise and air pollution is minimized. Needless idling is eliminated, reducing engine wear and fuel costs. Time is extended between overhauls. And harmful friction and wear is halted during cold weather starts.

Kim Hotstart has heating systems for coolant, oil, diesel — and combination circulating systems, too. In models and sizes to fit any boat or ship.

Put 50 years of pre-heating experience on your team.
