Marine Combustion Practice reviews developments in marine combustion practice and covers topics ranging from combustion equipment for boilers to diesel injection equipment, nuclear reactors, and the use of natural gas in marine boilers. Automatic control of oil-fired marine boilers is discussed, along with fundamental types of injection pumps and factors affecting combustion in marine boilers. This book is divided into four sections and opens with a discussion on solid fuel used for marine purposes, including coal, and properties of coal affecting combustion and combustion equipment design. The reader is then introduced to fuel storage and supply systems; types of fuel injectors and fuel pumps; physics and technology of nuclear power; and sea transport of liquid petroleum gases used in marine boilers. Subsequent chapters deal with factors affecting marine combustion; characteristics of boil-off; and safety aspects of the use of natural gas in marine boilers. This monograph will be a valuable source of information for marine engineers and for practitioners and research workers in the field of marine combustion.II.23 (a) and (b)), the overload protection arrangements for the Sulzer engine are described in detail. ... lb/in2 at full speed to about 4000 lb/in2 at slow speed without the need of manual adjustment of the fuel pump output control on the engine.
