Msm Mildura steam plant info needed !
« on: November 19, 2020, 10:37:27 pm »

Hello everyone!


I’m looking at purchasing a MSM Mildura steam plant from msm.
Does anyone have any experience with this  plant? Good or bad.....
I originally wanted a Stuart d10 but the msm engines look so nice!!


I’m hoping to put it inside an Orion mouldings holmsider tug.  hull length 46” beam of 13”

That’s a big heavy engine with no reverse, it weighs nearly 2kg, is 3/4 inch bore and stroke, so will need to be matched to a powerful boiler. Have you considered smaller engines that will give you a lot longer running time from the available steam?

Bonjour,
Technically, it is possible to install a D10 in a "small" (1,20 m/ 20 kilos) tug hull, I did it in my Jan : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utYZJDJPBVg that gives a powerful boat : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqrJScYCvXA or
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmxepI3cwOc  :-))

But this means you can install only a small boiler, so if you wish autonomy, you would appreciate a coupled pump:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKRDUUG4dxI

Dave, the "D10 like" Mildura has a Stephenson reverse version, to ba coupled with a marine wheel, mandatory to my opinion on a boat I agree with you, it is just a little bit more expensive  ok2

Bonjour,
Length : 1,20 m = 47", Beam = 30 cm = 12" for >= 20 kilos
Pushing a heavy load is never a problem    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPPux5exRNE  but turn too fast when pulling a boat weighing more than 400 kilos is less funny https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-R29YkaoWI&t=10s
