New engine room ventilation system available

ADVERTISEMENT

Delta “T” Systems, a marine ventilation manufacturer based in Riviera Beach, Florida, has released a new, next-generation ventilation control system for engine rooms, according to a company press release.

The P/T6 Engine Room Ventilation Controller is a “set-and-forget” digital system that automatically adjusts ventilation while engines are running, according to the company. The system uses engine room temperature and pressure readings to control intake and exhaust fan speeds, and maintain optimum temperature and pressure.

The system can be accessed through a touchscreen display connected to the yacht’s monitoring network through an ethernet cable. Additional benefits, according to the company, include:

  • Maximal engine performance, with minimal electrical loads and noise levels.
  • Can be connected to a marine fire detection/suppression system to automatically shut down ventilation when dampers are closed and extinguishers activated.
  • Automatically switches to “quiet run” mode when engine shuts down, and can be switched to manual mode to adjust ventilation during painting or other tasks.
