For a prolonged safe, trouble-free and efficient operation of machinery and system onboard ship, it is important that there is proper maintenance, a record of correct parameters and prevention of impurities from entering the systems. The first and second points are a part of routine duties; however, for preventing impurities from entering, it is important that every system must have filters and strainers which help in removing contamination from the system.
The strainer is a type of filter used mostly on low pressure or suction side and is used to remove large contamination particles from the system. It is because the mesh screen opening in the strainer is bigger in size and is similar to those of coarse filter. If the suction condition is critical, then the strainer can be fitted on the discharge side. It will purely depend upon the make and recommendation of the manufacturer. Usually, strainers are cleaned whenever they are opened up or when the pressure drop on the filter side is high.
Marine filters are also called Mudbox. It is a fine mesh screen which is used to remove impurities from oil, water, and air on the ship. Filters are mounted in pairs as a duplex system so that one can be used and the other is kept on standby at a time. The filter can be utilized both in low pressure (suction) and discharge (high pressure) side of the system and is used to remove the smallest part of dirt which is carried away in the system. The cleaning frequency of filters depends on the type of the filter and is decided by the manufacturer. The schedule is generally included in the planned maintenance system onboard.
