#54420, "Identification of auxiliary steam pipes in engine room."
Sat Dec-10-16 02:50 PMby Karol_W

          

Good evening.

I'm new here so i need to write something about me first.

I'm from Poland and i am 21 now. I'm interested in Titanic for over 15 years now, with special attention to propelling machinery. I'm trying to find as much information about Engines and Boilers Rooms as possible, so maybe something new will be uncovered =). Especially identification of purposes of every pipe out there is my goal.(or at least as many, as it is possible). I was following this forum for at least 5 or 6 years prior, reading a lot of interesting subjects. I decided to join in hope to learn even more.

I would like to show something that i was working on for some time now. I know very well, that using plans from T:TSM is prohibited because of copyrights, but then it will not be possible to make this. If i need to get warn by this - fine.

I do not know if this has ever been done before, but here it is. This plan with identify of connections of Auxiliary steam supply pipes on forward bulkhead of Reciprocating Engine Room is a result of my own research into the subject.

I do not have any source for pipe 13*. I read at least 5 books about marine engineering in effort to find out a purpose of this pipe, but no luck. That's why there is a question mark next to it. It's purpose on legend is a pure guess.

If anybody out there is able to point any mistakes - please let me know. I'm fully open to critic.

Plan has been done with use of Engine Room Cross Sectional Plans from Titanic: The Ship Magnificent. I do not take any credits to it, because i do not have rights to it.

PS: I choosed 'I need help' type of subject. I'm sorry if it is not matching with what i wrote here.



Regards.

Karol W

Hello Karol, and welcome to the forum.

That is very impressive work! It's also quite a surprising coincidence, in that I've been working on something very similar for the last little while. My drawing is not yet finished, but here's a small preview.


To give credit where it's due, the plan you scanned from 'Titanic: the Ship Magnificent' was originally published in the journal 'Engineering' (18 November 1910 issue). This plan was also the basis for my drawing.

I regret I don't have time today to examine your pipe identifications in detail, but it looks like we are in agreement on many of them. I'll try to make time tomorrow to post a more comprehensive reply.

I know there are other forum members who will find your work very interesting.

Regards,
Ralph

Good Evening.

Ralph - those plans are interesting. The fact of brine heaters existing on Olympic class liners seems plausible. But since none of us see full plan of piping in refrigerating plant here, we can not say if those brine tanks are heaters or they are not.

All right. I think we are slowly coming to an end of our steam pipes research subject. But since purpose of pipe 20 is not confirmed, we should at least point out the possiblities. My types are:

1. Separated connection to air heating coils in aft compartments.
2. Steam for reversing engines (very dubtfull).
3. Steam for heating coils in lube oil tanks in Reciprocating Engines and Turbine Engine Rooms.

Steam connections in Engine Rooms are not the only thing that i'm researching. I also did some research to figure out exact positions of bilge suctions on Tank Top deck and few other things. But this should go into a separated thread.

Regards.

Karol
