#55656, "Air shafts for Engine Room and D deck galley." Tue Nov-21-17 02:28 PMby Karol_W
I know there was a topic about this issue in the past, but because of missing pictures, i don't know if users came to any conclusion about this.
I have serious problems with understanding how the C deck area between turbine room casing and aft 1st class staircase was actually planned in term of ventilation shafts. Looks like the galley air shaft is suddenly dissapearing from the ship on this deck and just appear again in D deck ceiling. While the Longitudinal Engine Rooms plan from 'Engineering' which shows this area, show that this shaft shuld be there. But it's not on BB deck plans. The 20" fan most likely do not have anything to do with galleys ventilation, but supplied warm air to 1st class cabins and corridors on C deck.

It should be understood that the general arrangement plans are extremely simplified when it comes to ventilation.
The 'Engineering' profile is a bit more detailed (showing the galley flue and steam exhaust pipes rising up the funnel) but there would have been a number of smaller ventilating ducts running along the light and air shafts, that don't appear on the plans.
The 20-inch fan you mention was, on the Olympic, used to exhaust the nearby staterooms, and I expect it was the same on the Titanic.

Hi Karol. I think Bruce just missed a dividing line within the light & air shaft area on C deck. I've marked my guesses in green on your pictures:
What is uncertain to me is whether shaft #2 connects to the C deck fan or to the galley. Likewise is #1 to the galley or the engine room or both? We need to look at the fans at the base of #4 funnel for more identification.
I hope Steve is looking here, the galley stove exhaust is visible on the ER ceiling. The duct from the ER Light shaft fan must run aft to one side of center.
