Re: Raw Water Manifold Failure - A54
Hi Craig, I was pointing out that the photo of the new Amel manifold is made of poly pipe fitting that are heat welded, www.advancedpiping.com.au this makes a very strong joint.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
If you are going to use PVC pipe I would be sure to use shedual pressure pipe and fittings, with the glue that is appropriate for pressure fittings, also need to clean the fittings and pipe with a MEk cleaner,,. Swimming pool pumping and filter style fittings would work. Stay clear of drainage fittings and pipe.
Regarding a engine room fire, we should have a working fire suppression system, like the fire boy.
I was under the impression that the cockpit drains are fibreglass covered.
I know that the main engine and genset exhausts are a heavy schedule pvc fitting at the waterline exit. Should not have any heat in this part of the exhaust.
