Shell and tube heat exchangers consist of a series of tubes which contain fluid that must be either heated or cooled.
Doors in the side shell can be seen on almost every type of ship and are used for various duties. The most common ones are for passengers, pilot entry, and for bunker hoses
A plan showing the seams and butts, thickness and associated welding of all plates comprising the shell plating, framing, etc.
The plates forming the outer side and bottom skin of the hull. The shell plating is of crucial importance to the longitudinal strength of the ship structure.
A continous deck above the freeboard deck.
The MacGREGOR Sherlog is a type-approved, ultrasonic testing system for verification of tightness of hatch covers, doors, ramps and windows.
A shielded cable or screened cable is an electrical cable of one or more insulated conductors enclosed by a common conductive layer.
