[Amel Yacht Owners] SIPHON BREAK USING A VENTED LOOP -RAW WATER ENGINE COOLING SYSTEM


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good afternoon Alex,

Here is a picture of the anti- siphon on my vessel, I have the Volvo TMD 22 P
http://www.nikimat.com/volvo_tmd22p_missing_hoses/volvo_tmd22p_missing_hoses_4.jpg
Don’t look at the arrows, they are for something else.
The BIG black hose is the exhaust.
Behind it is a yellow/black hose going to the top of the picture to a metallic half circle, that is the anti- siphon.

I will also sent you directly via email a page of the SM2K Owner Manual showing the Yanmar anti- siphon.
Let me know if you receive it.

Good
afternoon, does anyone have
images or a diagram of an anti- siphon installation
on the raw water side of the engine cooling system? I am
considering this step in addition to a few others to avoid
water backing into the engine exhaust system on the Yanmar
4JH4-HTE (repowered) on our Older Maramu.

Dear Alexander,
Many thanks for your email, very interesting thank you. Was this an original Amel installation on your boat?
One question, I don´t see a breathing (venting) valve on either loops. Can it work that way?
I enjoy very much your very orderly way of describing and documenting your work onboard. Very useful indeed.
Best regards,
Alex Paquin

Good morning Alex,

I took 6 pictures and posted them on:
http://nikimat.com/volvo_tmd22p_siphon_break.html

It shows you the flow of the water, the last 3 pictures will show you the detail of the Syphon Break, with the little pipe that allow air and actually make it a “syphon break”.

Hope that helps!

Have a great day

Alex,

This is an Amel installation.  

There is no need for a valve in this installation.  When the engine is running, water comes out into the cockpit drain gutter and drains away.  When the engine stops, air goes in and breaks the syphon.

Those fussy little rubber valves in standard anti-syphon loops are a real source of trouble.  They can fail open and spray saltwater all over your engine room, or fail closed and let water syphon back to your engine.

Good afternoon Alex,

Here is a picture of the anti- siphon on my vessel, I have the Volvo TMD 22 P http://www.nikimat.com/volvo_tmd22p_missing_hoses/volvo_tmd22p_missing_hoses_4.jpg

Behind it is a yellow/black hose going to the top of the picture to a metallic half circle, that is the anti- siphon.

I will also sent you directly via email a page of the SM2K Owner Manual showing the Yanmar anti- siphon.
