New Marine Systems Brochure From Waukesha Motor
A full-color 20-page illustrated brochure covering the Waukesha line of marine diesel-powered energy systems for both main propulsion and ship's service power is offered by Waukesha Motor Company. This publication is intended as a guide or reference manual in selecting power needs from Waukesha's four families of marine diesels. Power ratings cbver the range 78 to 1,700 horsepower. Briefly, the basic engine families listed are: The VHP series, V12 and inline 6-cylinder diesels; heavy duty big-bore units developing high torque for main propulsion applications or for electrical service power on the larger vessels.
The V.C series, V16, V12 and V8 diesels; compact high-speed murine units that offer high performance in the mid-size range for both propulsion and ship's service duty.
The VS series, V8 an'd 6-cylinder diesels; lightweight high-speed engines offering an attractive combination of performance and economy for work boats or pleasure boats. The VR series of 6-cylinder diesels offering proven work boat dependability. Also covered are Waukesha En ginator®, diesel-powered generator sets in both 50-hz and 60-hz versions and power ratings up to 1,000 kw (1,200-kw emergency rating). The Waukesha marine gas turbine, developing up to 485 hp from a surprisingly small package, is also shown. All units listed are illustrated, together with many color views of modern vessels using Waukesha power. Dimensioned clearance diagrams, performance curves and tabular power ratings are given for all engines. Finally, a comprehensive table of comparative design data for naval architects and marine engineers is included. This features no less than 62 useful design factors.
