Ship's Tank Heating System
S.E.A. Engineering was retained by a client who wished to convert the oil storage tanks on one of its offshore supply vessels from diesel to Bunker-C. This required the design and installation of a tank heating system. Our engineers performed:
|• Specified All Equipment
• Designed the Control System
• Managed the Control System Subcontractor
• All Required Heat Transfer Analysis & Calculations
|• Supervised All Installation Work
• Performed System Initialization
• Set Up & Produced a System Operator's Manual
This design was based on a glycol heat transfer medium to avoid cost, freeze-up, and environmental problems. The system consisted of heat transfer coils in each of six tanks, two boilers, two pumps, distribution piping, control valving, and a control panel based on digital temperature control technology. The system maintains cargo temperatures at 110°F under all ambient conditions encountered in the North Atlantic or the North Sea.
Chemical Process Tank Mixer Modification
S.E.A. Engineering led a project to redesign a bottom-entry drive for a chemical mix tank for a manufacturer of medical dip molded products. The original design had been performed by a company without the concept innovation skills, nor the precision machine design and fabrication capabilities required to produce a working solution.
Careful attention to precision fits and tolerances, proper application of rolling contact bearings, and the design of a special seal arrangement were essential technology components. Our team applied these aspects to the problem to affect a solution for the client.
