fn 3 ans 1 - @ varun heavy weather ballast is the designated cargo tank in a bulk carrier that is to be ballasted specially during heavy weather...specialtiy for dis tk is it has water ingresa system alarm which is bypassed during ballast,then ballast pumping piping arrangement is to b dere

Also it has protective coating on tank nd venting arrangement ia diff.

fn 3 ans 4 - If co2 released unclamped then due to pr nd ship movement it might fall down where the co2 will go below the syphon tube causing it to freeze nd preventing flow of co2 in the line April 2 at 4:50pm via mobile Like

Gaurav Kishor Malusare so can v realease the co2 if clamp is not present in case of fire April 2 at 4:51pm Edited Like

Bijedar Sankhla sorry friend to cannot release co2 if clamp are not in place.. the main reason is co2 bottle is pressurized at 52bar if u release with clamp lose the bottle

will fly off like rocket and damage the entire system of piping which will lead to complete failure of system..and then you cannot use your co2 anymore hence.....i hope its ok now with this question

@ bijendar...even i thought of the same thing as u for co2 being released unclamped...but den was told that the accepted answer was d onegiven above so i gave dt ans. Only...but wt u r sayin is also rite but am not sure weder it'll b acceptable

on behalf of bijedar....the answer of bottle flying off like rocket was given by surveyor itself one of my friend went through same question he had answer something that time the surveyor said bottle pressure will act and bottle will flyoff and damage the piping system completely..same like when u keep a empty drum upside down and inside u burn rope bomb in diwali the drum flyies offf ...i guess same thing over here

@ rajesh jat im not sayin that bijedar is wrong he's rite....even i thought d same.....but i was told dis ans...nd gave d one can try both d ans. in orals...if one doesent work d oder one can or if d surveyor is askin for more reasons of not releasing co2 unclamped then one can tell both d above mentioned is upto self...

Guys sorry for posting late.. orals @ dgs ..internal .Dutta sir & external- Gosh sir only Fn 6.....Result-Pass... 1) what is MPT? EXPLAIN? i said..its Magnetic particle testing...done to detect crack on ferrous material, then told him abt the basic principle ..he said how will you go abt in propeller shaft?....actually i have seen this in dry dock i said that an electro magnet is used which is supplied current by mobile battery set , the area to be tested is cleaned thoroughly and then a liquid spray containing iron filing is sprayed and the electro magnet is moved slowly thru it , if any crack it can be seen with iron filings clinging to cover up the crack, and will take the shape of the crack... but he was not so impressed with the electro magnet thing....... 2)why Acetylene bottles are kept vertically straight? i said as bottle contains acetone which is in liquid state, liquid will come out from the torch if kept horizontal, so improper burning of torch and explosion may occur.....he said only liquid

is there inside?..i said there is a spongy type material filled with acetone.....actually he wanted more........but this was max i can explain,, 3)he gave me a situation.."suppose you are in dry dock and everything is finished , suddenly superintendent realized that DB tank plugs are not tested ,how will you go about it in the least possible time? i said that we can fabricate a short pipe on the manhole door for pr guage and air connection and can test it by air pr.....he said are you sure, by air can we do it? i said this was done in dry dock .....he said then if it is a big tank how much air you will require and at what pressure.........for pressure i said abt 0.5 bar.....was not impressed i guess... 4)how will you measure the ovality of crank pin? i drew the crank pin diagram and showed him the positions where to take the reading with outside micrometer...four readings on aft nd fwd side....... then he said you want to send this report to your office showing that one pin has exceeded the ovality say 0.2 will you prepare your report ..draw the tables with the values of a pin havng a dia of 200 mm......actually i knew the table but some how wasnot able to put the values .... 5) working of chain block? i drew the diagram posted in r group and explained him the working , abt the clutch, ratchet pinion and gearing system, he said how clutch engages and disengages the pinion...i said that the hand chain wheel is on multi lead axial threaded shaft so if you turn clockwise the hand will move inward and engages the clutch and viceversa will disengage the clutch......he said ok,,how will the load stay still in hanging condition ?for this again i explained the gearing funda,,,,but he wanted more ...... Dutta sir called me in and said those magical words "GO, PASSED"......i thank my GOD, my family ,frnds and this group for their immense support and guidance....... i have posted in detail of the ques asked to me....if any doubt please do ask me...i will try to help to the best of my ability........

havesh Tandel 4th july 2013...... mr. badwal..... all function he asked me all repeated questions..... 1) he asked me to make propeller and shaft arrangment....... i made safe tole wala figure....... then he asked me "was that in ur ship?"...... i said "it was not from my ship, but this is wat i studied"....... then

he asked me "wat is this?"(pointing towards araldite)..... i said "araldite".... then he asked me "wat is that araldite for?"........ i said "for bonding"..... then he said "do u think this araldite can take all the stresses?"......... i was like "kya bolu".......... i said "no sir"....... then he asked next que.... 2) he asked me 2 make figure of uniflow scavanging and loop scavanging wen piston is at tdc..... according to our earlier discussion i made figure...... that is long piston for loop scavangin....... but i was not aware how much long i sud make..... so i made piston such a way that it cover nearly half of outlet port........ then he asked me "y unflow is short piston and y loop is long?"....... so i said "to cover inlet and exh port".... so he said "but its half covering...... y not full covring?"........ so later i modified my figure with full covring of exh port"....... i dont know exactly how much it shud cover wethr both intlet and exh ports or only inlet or half inlet wen piston at tdc???????....... if anybdy knows plz inform me........ then ther was no reaction on him....... he started asking next que....... 3) how u chek piston ring butt clearence?????? according to standard ans i replied "put piston ring in new liner(overhauld) and chek butt clearence" ...his cross que was "u r going to use this piston ring in same old liner but u r cheking the butt clearence in new liner then wts the point of doing this?".... i had no answer......... then he came to next question 4)make a figur of safety v/v........ only seating arrangement...... i made figure..... cross que "wat is this (pointing towards the v/v lead and spindle joining pin)....... i said "sir... its tapered pin it vl be chamfered after insrting"...... his cross que "y its here?"...... actualy i made a pin very low, wher spindle is going to finish..... then he has print out of safety v/v figure....... he show me that figure that figure pin was not there but end of spindle was conical shape so he said " the pin cannot be at conical shape..... it shud be little up"....... i said "sory sir" 5) he told me to make figure of power card....... i finished half figure then he said "make power card or indicator card watvr u like".... so i made figure of power card..... then he said "show me late injection in that"....... i made it with dash dash line......... my dash dash line was from late injection to after burnig same as all notes and books..... but he extended that dash dash line till lower end that is upto wher exh v/v opens.... then he asked me "y its not like that?"...... i was quite...... next que...... 6)local starting arrangment of engine....... i made starting air diagram........ then he asked me "how air stops wen we give fuel?" i said "ther is an air - fuel interlock wich stops air in starting air line and close auto start v/v also".....corss que - "but wen u change lever from air to fuel that air vl stop without that air-fuel interlock also...... then y there is an air fuel interlock?"...... i said "for more safety"..... no reaction on him........ next que 7)"wen u take over watch u take round and feel crank case door with hand..... y?" .... i said "to chek temp".......cross que "if it is hot?"..... i said "then ther can be crankcase explosion"..... he asked me "wats the reason for crankcase exposion"...... i said "oil mist can be presnt"...... "y oil mist?" "worn out bearings" "other reason?" i said " stuffing box leaking" "wat all cheks u do while doing crankcase inspection" i said "worn out baring particles.......... lube oil condition ....... piston rod scoring"....... no que 8). he made 2 figure....... both same........... that was longitudinal cross section of alternator........ that is ..... 3 rectangle boxes 1 below the other......... top 1 is stator... center 1 rotor...... and below that again stator....... then he gave title to both figure.... 1st was dc generator and 2nd was ac genrator..... then he asked me to show line of magnetic flux in that both dc and ac generator..... in dc generator i made straight line and did naming ...... top stator i made north and bottom stator south....... so line of magnetic flux from north to south........ but in ac generator i made that half circle wala line of magnetic flux..... and named rotor top side as north pole and bottom side as south pole ....... and i told him "sir it wud keep on rotating" ..... ther was no reaction........ next que

9) "wat vl u chek in 2stroke engine fuel injector after overhauling?"........ i said "sir... injection press" "and" i said "atomisation" he said "and?" i was thinkin then he only said "vl u chek dripping?" i said "yes sir... we chek dripping also"...... then he told me "m giving u fun 6.... repeat others" i said slowly "sir..... only function 6?" then he looked toward mr. dutta and told him "sir...... he is thanking me for giving him fun 6"...... than looking towards me(loudly) "u go and stdy more man" i said "ok sir.......thank u sir"

Jerome Joseph FIRST ATTEMPT DGS, BADWAL AND BANARJEE 4/11/2013 CLEARED FUNCTION 4B HE WAS ONLY IN A MOOD TO GIVE ONE asked first abt which propeller in ship, i said keyless, he told to deaw i drew a diagram from the internet with certain self modifications , was satisfied, previous guy drew from saif , he got pissed, asked abt keyless and keyed propellers, how torque transmitted, material of propeller and tailshaft. how weight is taken in pintless rudder, i drew carrier, how is it attached to stock(how is it attached to stock) wanted details then asked abt steering, how motoring is prevented , diagrams of the methods, how liner calibration is done what clearance of piston ring to be taken and how to take butt clearance starting air valve diagram with start stop, how air is cut of in auto as well on maunal he will then ask abt manual manoeuvring system abd how air is cut off all parameters, then ask abt exhaust valve leaking how to find out, draw the indicator card also asked if there is a slight increase in jacket temp(2 degrees) and a drop in piston cooling (2 degrees) what is the reason for it which governor in your ship and how is speed controlled if rpm increases i said slight liner crack, he agreed and asked me some more reasons i said i need some time to think ,he said next question, guys give me some reasons more pls safety and electrical only one question what is towing , emergency towing, on ships is it applied, i said all ships but whats the difference on which ships there r towing and emergency towing, i said dont know on which is on which ships, next question in electrical he drew some boxes as stator and rotor and asked if dc and ac is applied what is direction of rotating magnetic field no more questions on electrical or safety

amlesh Nikam External ghosh and internal data (second attempt) Function 3 : Side view of bulk carrier bulkhead n show how the bulkhead is connected to bottom. Reed ka diagram is accepted. mlc what will be ur contribution for mlc. I answered this about rest hours n also about the training the person on board but he wants more. I said about weekly rest hours n 77 n 72 he added both n said 24X7 calcuate it n tell me why there is a difference. Certificated in mlc I said some of them . he said what certificates are there in alleyway of ur ship I said no certificate only general arrangement

plan and fire safety plan etc . But he disagrees How do u pressure test ballast tank. I said about 2.54 meter so he said why 2.54. he is not interested in hose test n all. How will u pressure test double bottom tank: I said will fill till the sounding pipe is fully filled and check for leakage. Xquestion: u said it should be 2.54 n sounding pipe height might be 25m so how to calculate. What is a doubler plate and insert plate. Why is the bob of sounding tape made of bronze. He didnt agree at all about no spark . softer material than the stell plate lot of Xquestion. N he was not satisfied. Also asked what is striker plate. What type of extinguisher are installed in accommodation I said foam . he disagress but I was confident n said it was foam n outside my room. The well is provided in the suction pipe of ballast tank why it gets corroded. Wat he wanted to hear is cavitation takes place . nothing else. Gave me clue answered it correctly. Than he asked what is cavitation how does it causes corrosion. N also he asked how will u correct if there is a hole in the plate I said renewed. He wanted some short cut. To correct the fault. 4b: Draw fuel pump of bnw , how is the fuel metered. Rack n pinion arrangement. Lot of Xquestion. N I messed it up. Draw indicator diagram for 4stroke. N he said no one practices this one I know. I said dont know. 5: How is the power transferred to crane on the deck- I think he wants to hear is supply is given from the emergency switchboard. But not sure about this one. In horizontal motor what is flanged motor and framed motor. I was clueless I asked both are horizontal motor he said yes. I said dont know. AVR diagram lot of cross question. On the SCR triggering. Micropitting.- N believe me he is still not satisfied with any of the answer discussed. How the potential difference is generated. Lot of Xquestion . n he was not satisfied. I said charge is developed due to the dissimilar metal of hull n propeller n he said how. 6 How to order a new pipe. I said as discussed earlier. He said how will u order from the book. I said will check the repective pressure but he said how n didnt knew. Got scolding on this one its duty of second engg and chief engg na why third engg will know it .lol.i said sorry.\ Jack up test of intermediate bearing. Said the saif tole method also since I did this in dry dock so got a tick. All some more question asked will post when I recall it.. Cleared function 6 :) was expecting wash out again but he gave me one function. happy to clear atleast one. Guys he gives clues but lot of cross questioning. u cannot bullshit

July 3 at 7:15pm Like

di Shell Ghosh & Dutta Sirs, 28/6 Asked previous types of engines. Fn4B 1. Why is the piston of sulzer rta convex? A: I told him it is not convex but concave....he din't agree...i told him that I have done 8 piston pulls and 7 liners of RtFlex...and it is concave. he ok maybe it is concave....then he asked why it is like that? I guessed that it provides more space for the injectors to inject without impinging the crown...he said is it so? i said yes....then i told him that since it is concave...there will be more surface area for oil to splash for cooling inside the piston. he said dont talk high funda tell by means of basics...and next q. 2. How will you balance the rotor of a Turbine? A: I said I have not seen or read about it...but I can describe the the example of wheel balancing of cars...he said you are partially correct...but there is something you are missing. 3.Draw Auto Starting Valve? A. Drew the one in lambs....he asked how venting is done...I explained to him the diagram...dint agree and said that nobody is able to explain to him the venting of the valve. 4. What is ps? A. It is a German unit for work done.... XQ What is the conversion value? 1ps=0.735kw 5. Draw Power card and Draw card? A. Drew the ideal one....he said what is below the atmospheric line....I said that based on the diagram that I have drawn for a 2 stroke naturally aspirated engine...the area below the datum atmospheric line is partial vacuum. He did not say anything....then asked to draw card for leaky piston ring....did that...then said leaky exhaust valve...did that....he said they both look similar...I said yes...then he said how will you know if its leaky exhaust valve....I said that the Exhaust temp will be higher as compared the Pcom and Pmax value....he said good. 6. Fuel injection starting late and ending early...draw card and what is the problem? A. drew the card with all details....then told him that the injector could be set at a higher opening pressure...ok and....the fuel pump timing is incorrect...ok and...I said that in electronic engines we have to check the current used by the rail valves(solenoid valves)....he said you are right but stick to the basics. Fn6 1. What is MPI? A. Told him the basic definition...he was not very convinced then explained to him how I did it onboard using the kit from MAGNAFLUX(google for details)....he said he knows magnaflux.....but what I am saying is incorrect....I argued...but he put a big cross. :/ 2.What are the advantages and disadvantages of using low Sulphur fuel on diesel engines? A. Adv:Less it is possible to use engine without expensive anti SOx upgrades...he asked what upgrades?....I told him exhaust gas

washing system by wartsilla...again he said think of basics and not high funda. Disadv: loss of lubricity...he asked explain...i told him that the elements in the fuel sys(injector,pumps etc)...are all lubricated by the fuel...the removal of S from the fuel results in degeneration of lubricating quality of fuel....he said correct...and then I told him that the rubber O rings also start leaking because of low sulphur fuel....then he said why...i told him that I had read a circular about it and subsequently we started adding additives....again he said stick to q. 3. What is TIG? A: Tungsten Inert gas welding....draw and show....drew the diagram....what is it used for...i said for welding thin aluminium or SS. What is the gas...i said Argon...what is the consumable in this welding? I said the Tungsten electrode is not consumable but the filler rod is and(this was a fluke) the type depends on the metal being welded. 4. What is plasma cutting? A. I told him i dont clearly know this answer....he said try....i told him plasma cutting is done by blasting a thin jet of hot gas on the metal to be cut....he said then what is the difference between this and normal gas cutting....I told him the temperatures of plasma are much higher....XQ what temps? I said i dont know. 5. What is micro pitting? A. Told him it is pitting caused by spark errosion in the bearing due to improper shafting...XQ what is shafting?....I dint know this properly. so next Q 6. Have you opened main bearing? A. I said yes sir 12 units....he asked why...i said for survey...did you check only top half....i said also jacked up the bottom and took it out for inspection...he said good. 7.In Ref. plant...the level of gas is falling what will you do? A. I said i will check for all connection and either applying soap solution or using halon lamp....he said if nothing is leaking then? i said i will check the condenser. he said are passed in bot from my side..... go and wait Dutta sir will tell you result aferwards. Dutta Sir called...he checked...class 4 results....and then said go you have passed in all. Done with Class 2....:).....thanks a lot to this group.

Guys he goes into details and needs everything. . 24.06.13 : DG Shipping

Internal : Mr. Gadkar External : Mr Mishra Appeared : All Function. Cleared : Function 5 He started with the details of all the certificates by looking into my sea service testimonials. Asked me about each and every details of my last ship ( power, boiler, engine, generator etc. No stroke bore ratio) Function 3 1. What type of fire extinguishing system on board car carriers ( as i have done PCC ). I told foam type for deck and co2 for er. ok draw fixed foam type. Drawn the diag. as per reeds. accepted. X q : in this diagram where the foam is produced. I was like...... Next x q : Why sea water pump is there and what is the ratio of foam and water.. Draw dcp fire extinguisher. What are the latest co2 regulations. 2. What r the certificates carried on ship. Tell 14 certificates without which ship can not sail. I tried and told all marpol and solas certificates. Accepted. X Q : Is ORB and GRB comes under certificates. I was like no sir these r booklets but has to be on board. 3. Difference between gas tight, water tight and weather tight bulkhead. I know only water and weather tight i.e A weather tight bulkhead is generally accepted to prevent the ingress of water from the weather side only. A watertight bulkhead is designed to prevent the passage of water from either side under a pressure head and this is normally provided as a rating eg 30 meters or 3 bar. Access and egress must be through equivalent rating doors. but for gas tight. no answer regarding press testing 4. chapter 11 of solas : what is there in safety part . I forgot 5. Lifeboat type on last ship : Fully enclosed type. Draw the launching arrangement for lifeboat. I said sorry sir dont know. Function : 4b 1. What type of piston on last ship. I said oil cooled. Draw oil cooled. I tried but i drew water cooling bore wala diag. and he smiled and said u must study more. 2.Next bomb :what r Different type of shafting arrangement on ships. I said sorry sir 3. What type of burner on board last ship : I said rotary cup. Ok draw and explain . I knew this as i have read it last moment from saif tole notes. He accepted and asked what maintenance u do on it. I said cleaning and all shit but as soon as i came that we need to clean the holes with needle he said ok ok. i guess i was right. 4. What r the stresses on 2 stroke and 4 stroke con rod bolts. Explained as per saif tole notes. I think he just wanted to listen reversal of stresses in 4 stroke and tension and compression wala funda. 5. explain VIT. Itried but forgot in between Function :5 1. MSb safeties. Explained all ( dead front panned, ebonite handle 3-5 mm thick insulation mat 0.6mm behind the pannel, no pipelines passing etc. ) he asked what safeties internally ( no volteage trip, reverse power trip, short ckt trip, prefential trip and under frequency trip ) happily accepted. 2. AVR working. I drew the diagram give in mc george. Accepted but tried to went into deep i turned him to scr trigger control and drew the diag. He seems happy. 3. Maintenance on sealed batteries. I was like sorry sir these r maintenance free batteries. We can only check volage and sp. grvty. He said u sure i said yes. He started smiling. 4. star and delta connections on a motor. Explain and how insulation is tested on a 3 phase motor. Function 6 ( all from compressors ) 1. oil in refer system.what action u will take. 2. Ac is working fine but rooms are not getting cooled. I said recirculation, gas low, ac duct leaking, capacity control valve setting low. He accepted but next q how many positions in capacity control valves. I bluffed three max, min and one in between . No reaction. Draw diagram. I said sorry sir 3. air compressor relief valve lifting on 2nd stage. reasons.
