Improve Safety and Efficacy of Engine Rooms for the Marine & Offshore Industry
The marine and offshore industry present some of the most extreme conditions for equipment operation. From the engines that provide propulsion to the generators that supply electric power, it is critical to have them operating at peak performance when a breakdown is not an option at sea. Plus, these narrow and confined spaces can generate intense heat resulting in workplace safety hazards. To protect equipment, personnel, and the vessel, OCTI designs custom exhaust coverings for optimal performance and heat reduction in the engine room for crew comfort and safety.
We provide a variety in ranges of thermal insulation blanket solutions to better control and disperse heat in small engine compartments on board a ship. Let OCTI custom-make your engine blankets to reduce heat and sound.
Solutions & Applications
Thermal Insulation Blankets
On commercial ships, personnel safety is paramount. Thermal insulation blankets can reduce the engine room temperature by more than 30 degrees, allowing for an extended time in the engine space. The insulation also prevents personnel from exposed pipe burns while working.
Acoustic Insulation Blankets
Sound dampening material is commonly used in the engine room spaces to reduce ambient noise when equipment is in operation. It is also valuable to have when docked to reduce the sound of generators that provide power.
Heat Reduction of Water Pump Station
When the City of Garden Grove in Orange County, California constructed a new reservoir and water pump station, they soon realized the pump house was generating excessive heat.
See how OCTI used thermal blankets to correct the ambient temperature inside the building and ensure equipment surfaces met safe-to-touch recommendations.
