It looks like brick and water to me.  Something to do with boilers perhaps?

Post by: Jerry C on November 02, 2012, 11:03:44 am
I was thinking it might be inside a furnace, refractory bricks maybe?

Indeed, but what type of boiler?
Title: Re: Name the Part - 2
Post by: rmaddock on November 02, 2012, 03:12:19 pm
A water boiler?

Title: Re: Name the Part - 2
Post by: pettyofficernick on November 02, 2012, 03:47:35 pm
It is a water boiler, In fact the inside of one of HMS Belfast's 3 drum Admiralty pattern boilers.

Nick,
Maybe too much 'sky' for that, and also possibly to heavy rake. Bit too much metal for radar, so, this leaves aerofoil, but the leading edge is a tad blunt!

Dear Rmaddock, Whilst it is not strictly an aerofoil, it is indeed as near good as one! :-) - although it doesn't really function as such! %%  So, I get the go by a touch of default maybe... in return, I will go away and find something easy!!! :}  Regards, Bernard

Hey Nick
 
The 'error' was I posted a great answer and some vids solving the hot bulb clue. O0
That was the latest question I could see (and my cache was clean) next thing is
all the other posts appear and I look an idiot.
 
I couldn't do anything about looking an idiot but I could edit - hence 'an error occurred'
I said exactly the same thing to the wife the only the other night  %)

Hi cabman,

I've just looked at all the images on these first couple of pages, and Nick is the only one that has used the 'Add image to post' option (aka postimage.org). It makes me wonder whether there is a setting on your computer that needs altering to allow the postimage.org pictures to display.

If you 'right-click' on any of Nick's pictures, you should get a menu that may have a 'Properties' option. If you then select 'Properties', you should get a pop-up box which contains the 'Address' (URL) for the image as it is held at postimage.org, not on Mayhem
 
For (all our) reference, the address for the image that Nick included in Reply #69 is;
http://s17.postimage.org/8bk4scbij/Squid.jpg - if you copy and paste it into your browser, you should see just the image. If this is so, there may be a conflict with yourself and Mayhem.

However, if you get a repeat of the 'red cross' problem, it is possible that your computer (or ancillaries) are blocking the image in some way...   ...maybe!

The Paddler that is afloat is PS Kingswear Castle which runs from Thunderbolt pier and is the last coal fired paddler.
Gillingham Pier is outside the Dockyard Basin near the lock gates. Thunderbolt Pier is on the River Wall of the Dockyard.

ok more research needed, the funnel was moved to Bristol just before christmas 2011, by june 2012 the paddle boxes have been moved to gillingham pier as I see them in a photo on the blog post. so I was behind the times with them at chatham dockyards.
see I've learnt more just by posting the picture, I have now read a lot more about the restoration.

I am thinking seabed mining looking at that pipe. Lets say for diamonds - I am just using the synchronicity of the last guess of 'Solitaire'

Maybe it's one of De Beers five ships? For horizontal marine mining they have a remarkable seabed crawler, which uses flexible hoses along the ocean floor, to bring diamond bearing gravels to the surface.

mmmmmmmmmmmm lets asume it is atmospheric & pneumatic & we consider one side only...so it could be using the diameter ratios of d:e to perform work
1. if the wheel is rotated clockwise the right side chain A is lowered, the right side piston plate d
2. this then forces the air a down and throught the righthand side plate check valve
3. however as this air a passes further down it closes the plate check valve @ i & stops the air from entering to the annulus side of the smaller piston
4. the above seems non functional
5. if the pipe attachments l were drawn differently and allowed higher pressure air to be admitted to the top of the smaller piston e this could work, however some of the plate check valves would also cause non functionality ............ >>:-( ....Derek

Hi Bernard, I should have got that one, I have inspected the active rudder system on the Ton Class, powered by 2 Foden FD6 2 stroke marine diesels, 1 for each 'egg whisk' as they were known. I have photos somewhere, I must dig them out, here's a picture of the rudders themselves for the time being.

Hi Polaris.
Are these the words you are looking for??

The first gas-turbine-powered naval vessel was the Royal Navy's Motor Gun Boat MGB 2009 (formerly MGB 509) converted in 1947. Metropolitan-Vickers fitted their F2/3 jet engine with a power turbine. As the test was successful, the Fast Patrol Boats Bold Pioneer and Bold Pathfinder built in 1953 were the first ships created specifically for gas turbine propulsion.[

Dear Boneash,
 
Those or these will do! :-)) 8) {-)
 
F.2/3
Another attempt to solve the overheating problems resulted in the more highly modified F.2/3 during 1943. This version replaced the original annular combustion chamber with can-type burners like those on the Whittle designs. This appears to have solved the problems, raising the thrust to 2,700 lbf (12,000 N) in the process. However, by this time it was decided to move on to a much more powerful version of the engine.
 
Over to you :-)) :-)

there are a 2 pairs of rolls royce jet turbines at greenwich power station, they are an emergency power supply for the underground in London, the exhaust powers the turbines that generate the electricity.
so my guess to make is rolls royce.

The removable front is not primarily there to clear blockages, it is to allow  replacement of the wearable parts within and for adjustment purposes. It is not a lobe rotor pump, but you are very close, as both types are made by the same manufacturer, a name synonymous with this type of pump.

Not centrifugal, quite the opposite really. If you look carefully at the picture if the 'innards' i have just posted, you will notise that the steel shaft has a number of eccentric lobes on it, these are a tight-ish fit in the 3 rubber bits that have holes underneath. When the shaft rotates, it causes the rubber 'bits' undulate.....I must now retire to bed, so I shall bid you goodnight sir.......

Eccentrics rather than cams, look carefully at the clue picture of the working parts, a shaft, with 3 eccentrics, and 3 tight fitting rubber things, ( I say things because if I said what they are, it would give the game away) The eccentrics create a negative pressure inside the rubber bits, at the same time sliding them over a series of holes in a port block. The reason for ther e beins multiple eccentrics etc is to ensure a continuous flow, rather than an intermittent ont.....

Dear Nick,

 
The only thing I have in the Stores at the moment that looks remotely like this is a 7hp compressed air motor fixed on a bed to a hydraulic pump. It came off a twin boom drilling rig I bought for for very little some centuries ago(!), from the Redburn Mine only a matter of days before the pumps were switched off - I think this about 1976. With the help of the Workshop crew, and a number of ten pound notes(!), and the normal good natured swearing(!), we took the booms off, and everything else quickly salvageable, but the rest of this poor tracked machine lies 500ft under water now in the main drive. What a job to squeeze those booms into the cage! I have the p.graphs! What annoyed the Crew was that someone had not charged up the remaining 3t battery loco, so we had to push everything about a mile on six flatbeds! Wonderful days never to be repeated.

 
So, after this preamble, is this very nice shiny piece of eqpt. of yours connected with compressed air?

 
Kind Regards, Bernard

No Bernard, unfortunately not, driven by electric motorn either directly or by chain/belt. Sone portable versions can be driven by a diesel engine. Another, if obscure clue....Think 1960's Sci Fi B movies / comics, think of the names given  to robots etc, eg Tobor the Great. The name of the manufacturer sounds like something out of one of those. Is it time, do you think, for me to reveal the answer to the unanswered poser from earlier? :-)) :-)) :-))

Snubbers work quite well - I used to use them on my boat - not as good as the steel spring

Dear All,
The title I have for it is a Moring Compensator. Now, not being quite certain whether it has another name already mentioned, I think we will call it a day on this one! Over to anyone!
Regards, Bernard
p.s. Just had/having a very quick look in, much to do at moment.  Thanks Ned, appreciated.
p.p.s. Ned, could you PM me please to advise how I get around the questions etc.. Bob told me in an email but I can't find it!
