Aim= To show the understanding of the oil heating system and how important this system is for ships Objective= People or students with zero knowledge about this system will gain some basic knowledge or idea of how oil is been heated and why
Showing the filtering of sea water with the use of drinking water filter. The filtered water is then connected to the heater through piping. After the water is been heated, it will be pumped into the coils in the oil tank to heat the crude oil. Then the heated water will be cooled down by the cool oil in the tank and returned to the water reservoir. The crude oil in the oil tank will be at the right viscosity as the right temperature had been applied to it.
Water Filters Controllable Water Oil Tank Water Pump(see through) Heater Filtered Unfiltered Water Tank Water Tank Steel piping Thermometers Copper piping Wood support
This tank will contain only crude oil without any processes applied to it A thermometer will be attached to it to show the temperature of the oil The purpose of it is only to show audience what does crude oil looks like before being heated (not ready to be use by ships)
The thermometer located before and after the water heater are used to make sure the temperature of the water is suitable to be transferred around The use of the controllable water heater will prevent the piping from bursting due to too high temperature. The piping for this model will sure be protected with pipe insulation to prevent anyone to be physically contacting with hot piping.
- This model can be build within 1½ month- It could takes about 1½ month too to check and repair any deficiency- Constructing this model with the used of recycled or provided material will takes about $100-$200 only
With the present of this project, it will helps students to understand better of how oil is being heated before been used in the ship It will also makes it easier for students to imagine the whole concept of this system and easily applied it to the real construction in ships
All the six criteria are included in this construction:- The idea is related to marine engineering concept since it is about the heating of oil in ships- It will surely be practicable since all the materials, timing, budget and design for the construction are manageable- In the matter of affordable and economical, this model only needed less than $200 which is worth to be spend for the sake of long term knowledge- Never the less, this model for sure helps to avoid the destruction of earth since they are using recycled materials and reuses water.
