Background: Capsizing and sinking tugs by flooding Engine Rooms (ER)
- When a tug heels to large angles, rapid flooding occurs through deck ER vent (A)
- Flooding of large ER space leads to rapid sinking / capsizing with loss of lives.
- Although ER vents have been moved up to increase the heeling angle, there is presently no solution to prevent flooding a large angles up to 90° or higher.
SAFERVENTS offers practical solution to prevent ER flooding through ER vents
- Safe and simple solution up to heeling angles of 90° or even more.
- Absolutely reliable solution without mechanical moving parts.
- Easy to integrate in design with low installation cost (even retro-fitting possible).
- Safe and simple solution. Both deck vents are con-nected by watertight red and green cross pipes; ”Green” from the SB deck vent (A) to the PS opening into the ER room (B). (and ”Red” vice-versa).
No mechanical parts, always functioning!
|Although SB ER vent (A) submerges, no water flows through green pipe into ER.
||Even at 90° heeling angle, absolutely no water enters through large ER pipes
