INDEX MARINE GALVANIC ISOLATORS

INDEX MARINE GALVANIC ISOLATORS

Aisladores Galvánicos

Prevents galvanic corrosion caused by galvanic current flow. A galvanic isolator works by placing a rectifier network between the earth connection of the boat and shore-based main power supply. This stops the small continuous electrical currents that are generated by galvanic reactions between the various metals in contact with one another and the water which can cause rapid and heavy corrosion of underwater metalwork.

Variants are available to cater for 16 Amp, 32 Amp and 70 Amp shore and vessel electrical systems. The appropriate variant should be installed in-line in the earth cable between where shore power enters the boat and the vessels electrical distribution panel. All vessels will benefit from the installation of a correctly installed galvanic isolator, and many marinas make their use mandatory.

Available models:

  • 2160A16 (16Amp)
  • 2160A32 (32Amp)
  • 2160A70 (70Amp)

Astondoa 110 Century has been nominated as one of the finalist of the World Superyacht Awards 2017

The Century 110’ is a declaration of principles for the new and updated era adapted to today’s yachts. This is an extremely manoeuvrable ship with megayacht features. It is designed for large groups of family or friends who want to experience the open air with adjustable sunbeds on the bow and the stern, teak decks, and everything needed for outdoor living. The flybridge also makes it possible to enjoy the sea in all types of weather conditions.

Astondoa megayatch - Baitra

The ship has a modern style with bold and balanced lines. It is sporty yet welcoming.
There is a wide array of technology on board, such as a retractable sunroof that opens with the touch of a button. The Sky Lounge is the perfect setting for gatherings or parties at sea or in the marina.
The outdoor galley is intended to be used more frequently than the indoor galley thanks to the barbecue grill, wet bar and outdoor dining area to provide countless daytime and evening alternatives whilst enjoying the sky or a cocktail. Two three-person jet skis fit under the deck, and the stern garage stores a Williams jet tender for reaching shores that are inaccessible for the yacht.
The swim platform provides convenient access to the aft deck that houses a dining area and a sunbed.    Meticulous details have been taken into consideration, such as installing 16 refrigerators throughout the yacht at outdoor and indoor locations as well as in every cabin.

BW Fleet Management Finds Safety and Reliability

Samson 12-strand lines made with Dyneema® SK78 fiber replace failing jacketed mooring lines

Samson mooring ropes, on Baitra

In 2013, BW Fleet Management (BWFM) was facing a safety and operational issue: their jacketed HMPE mooring lines were failing. At one point, seven lines failed on a single vessel during a berthing. This problem was being experienced by other LNG operators in the industry, as well.

After a full investigation of the situation and gaining a new understanding of the
types of mooring lines available, BW FM determined the best way to ensure the
safety of their fleet and their crews was to replace the jacketed mooring lines throughout the fleet. Once the decision was made to address the issue with non-jacketed lines, BW FM considered several manufacturers, and decided to proceed with Samson’s nonjacketed, single-braid 12-strand mooring lines, AmSteel®-Blue, made with Dyneema® SK78. The combination of Samson’s unparalleled industry expertise and their unmatched experience using this innovative grade of Dyneema® helped BW make the decision.

Griffin Group is a global provider of products and services for the filtration industry, utilizing proprietary technology developed from over 30 years of professional experience purifying petroleum-contaminated seawater. In 2003, Griffin scientists developed MICROBLOC®, a revolutionary filtration technology, that is used exclusively in Griffin filtration systems. MICROBLOC® Multigrade Filtration Media Elements have tested to be 99.8% effective in separating water from diesel and bio-diesel fuels and can remove solid contaminants as small as 2 microns in size.
MICROBLOC®: The Clear Advantage

  1. Separate Water From Fuel At 99.8% Efficiency

Water can cause injector nozzle and fuel pump corrosion, ending in equipment failure and downtime. Unfortunately, water vapor continuously condenses inside your fuel tank. Griffin Fuel Filter / Water Separators eliminate this worry by removing water and other contaminants from your fuel supply. All Griffin Fuel Filter / Water Separators use the same MICROBLOC®  Multigrade Filtration Media technology. In moisture content tests conducted by PSB Corporation, Singapore on fuel samples taken from a fuel filter / water separator employing MICROBLOC®  Multigrade Media, 99.8% effectiveness of water removal was found to be achieved after 30 minutes of operation of the fuel filter / water.

  1. Remove Damaging Contaminants

Even small, nearly invisible particles can damage injectors and pumps, reducing fuel efficiency, robbing power, or worse. Each refuelling adds millions of tiny contaminants to your fuel system. MICROBLOC®  filters protect your engine from solid contaminants by filtering particles down to 2 microns in size. Elements are available in 2, 10, and 30 micron ratings.

  1. High Capacity

MICROBLOC® elements provide multi-layered filtration. Corrugated filtration media means more surface area to trap contaminants.

  1. Longer Filter Life

MICROBLOC elements don’t need replacement as often as “will-fit” filter cartridges. MICROBLOC®  filtration efficiency is up to 10 times greater than conventional media.

  1. Built to Last

Griffin Fuel Filter / Water Separators are built to take on any filtration job.

  1. Easy To Replace

All  MICROBLOC®  replacement elements meet or exceed OEM specifications and are easy to replace without the use of special tools.

  1. Enhance Engine Power

Griffin Fuel Filter / Water Separators enhance engine performance and reliability. You will feel your engine is more powerful and smoother after you install Griffin filters. Griffin filters will give your engine longer life.

  1. Reduce Fuel Consumption

A cleaner running engine runs more efficiently, and uses less fuel.

  1. Environment Friendly

Clean Fuel means cleaner exhaust. Griffin Filters reduce exhaust pollution more effectively than other similar products.

  1. Best Performing, Most Cost-Effective Choice

Griffin Fuel Filter / Water Separators are the right choice for fuel filtration.

How it works?

Four Stage Filtration Process:
GRIFFIN filters remove contaminants and separate water using a four stage process.

  1. CENTRIFUGAL STAGE:
    Larger solid contaminants and free water are separated.

    2. COALESCING STAGE:
    Smaller water droplets and solid contaminants are filtered out by MICROBLOC® multigrade filtration media, causing them to coalesce together and fall into the collection bowl.

    3. MICRO ACTION I STAGE:
    Micro action filtration removes the smallest water droplets and solid contaminants from fuel.

    4. MICRO ACTION II STAGE:
    A second micro action filtration ensures nearly 100% pure fuel filtration.

Filter water separator, what is it and what is it used for?

In gasoline engines it is mandatory to install a filter according to international regulations, which is more restrictive with diesel fuel engines. In these last ones, the function of the filter is double, on one hand it must prevent the access of solid particles to the engine and, on another hand, it should avoid that the water passes to the combustion chamber. This dual function is developed by the water and fuel separator filter.

What is it?

A water separator filter is a diesel engine and injectors protection system. This device is not exclusive to recreational boats and commercials ships, but is also installed in large motor vehicles of road vehicles.

How does it work?

The filter has several parts, depending on whether it fulfills the dual function of filtering the solid particles or only decants the water contained in the fuel. Usually the same device runs both tasks. Thus a filter of paper or similar material with a minimum porosity is different to capture the solid particles that barely measure a few microns and a second chamber where the water separates.

233019

The process by which the fuel is separated from the water differs according to the manufacturer. Some choose to subject the liquid to centrifugal pressure and others are based on decantation. Whatever is achieved is that the water, denser than the fuel, is placed on a lower bowl (opaque or transparent) where you can drain the liquid through a key.

The probability of water in the fuel is actually minimal, but it can be caused by contamination during transport, storage in port or in the tanks of the ship itself due to condensation.
