Marine Heat Exchangers
Marine Heat Exchangers exhaust manifold is necessary on marine engines to
reduce the temperature of the engine-room air space and the exhaust
pipe. Our development is to combine a water jacketed exhaust manifold with the
heat exchanger and header tank. This arrangement is particularly
suitable for small series-produced engines; the manifold is cooled by
fresh water and as a result a keel-cooled engine can be made by omitting
the heat exchanger tube stack and the sea-water pump.
the fresh-water outlet from the manifold would be connected to the keel
pipes and the return taken back to the engine fresh-water pump.
Heat exchanger/manifold assemblies are heavier than ordinary marine manifolds and must therefore be supported on the underside using the fixing lugs provided. If the exhaust manifold is in the sea-water circuit it should be installed with the sea-water inlet at the back and the outlet at the front on the top to ensure that it operates completely full of sea-water. If the manifold is in the fresh-water circuit a small by-pass hole must be provided in the thermostat to ensure that some water is circulating through the manifold at ail times.
