DRAW DIAGRAM , MARINE TWO STROKE MAIN ENGINE -- CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL



2 years ago, i went to the company doctor for my pre-medicals.

after taking my ECG the young female doctor, called her young male colleague and both of them perused my ECG graph for about 5 minutes-- all the time muttering under their breaths to each other.   i was all the while lying down patiently with all the paraphernalia stuck to my chest.

then the male doctor asks me " captain, do you have a heart problem?"

furious , i hissed back " from 4 metres away while lying down, from this acute angle , from upside down , i have seen there is nothing on that dang graph , to make you ask me this naive question. i suggest you immediately ask your more well informed colleagues"

after 10 minutes they come running back , huffin' and puffin' --" there is nothing wrong with your heart, sorry for the inconvenience!"

then the female doctor asks me " captain, how to you learn to read the ECG graph ?"

i replied " at sea we read more complicated graphs !"

( to be frank, when my father had his first heart attack , i bought lot of medical books and expensive CDs' and learnt a lot. at that particular time i could deduce a korotkoff sound and ECG as well as any experienced cardiologist )

  2. KERALA PARAVUR TEMPLE DEATHS:

    http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/Massive-fire-at-Paravur-Puttingal-temple-in-Kerala/liveblog/51761690.cms

    WHAT HAPPENED IS NOT A FIRE- BUT AN EXPLOSION --SABOTAGE

    NOT ONE SINGLE MAIN STREAM MEDIA HAS TOLD THE WORD "EXPLOSION" IR "SABTOAGE"

    ALL ARE BLAMING THE TEMPLE -- WITH THE GOAL OF SHUTTING DOWN TEMPLE FIREWORKS.

    UNCONTROLLED COMBUSTION IS EXPLOSION . .

    OUR SHIP'S ENGINE IS ONE LAKH TIMES THE SIZE AND POWER OF A CAR.

    INSIDE THE 2 STROKE MAIN ENGINE CYLINDER WE HAVE "CONTROLLED COMBUSTION"

    IF IT TURN TO "UNCONTROLLED EXPLOSION" THE CYLINDER HEAD WILL CRACK.

    ONE ONE HUGE TANKER , WE HAD 4 CRACKED CYLINDER HEADS FOR LANDING ASHORE.

    IN THE PAST ONE YEARS ON A 6 CYLINDER ENGINE, MORE THAN 20 CYLINDER HEADS HAD CRACKED.

    I WENT TO THE ENGINE ROOM EVEN BEFORE TAKEOVER -- AND TALKED TO THE EUROPEAN CHIEF ENGINEER.

    HE WAS INCOMPETENT-- AND HE HAD NOT TAKEN THE DRAW DIAGRAM OF THE MAIN ENGINES FOR THE PAST 5 MONTHS - THE MACHINE WAS THERE IN THE ECR, IN PRISTINE CONDITION.

    MY FIRST MESSAGE TO MY COMPANY WAS --I WANT NEW CHIEF ENGINEER IN THE NEXT PORT

    THE RESULTS ARE IN THE LINK BELOW-- I PROVED UNCONTROLLED EXPLOSION WAS TAKING PLACE .

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/12/marine-engineering-self-examiner-ships.html

    this is why all over the planet-- the examiners dip into my blogpost.

    so many indian engineers and even examiners have thanked me.

    WHAT HAPPENED AT PARAVUR TEMPLE WAS DELIBERATE SABOTAGE .

    CHECK OUT THE SHATTERED TILES OF NEARBY HOUSES -- THIS CANNOT HAPPEN WITH MERE FIREWORKS.

    WE DEMAND THAT MODI GOVT DOES PROPER INQUIRY AND PUNISH THE MEDIA FOR DOING ANTI-HINDU PROPAGANDA . ..

    WE WANT BETTER TALENT IN MEDIA-- SPEAKING STYLISH ENGLISH IS NOT A QUALIFICATION. NO WONDER THE BENAMI MEDIA IS FULL OF WANNABE GORAGAANDS . .

  3. YOU CAN HAVE "CONTROLLED" MAN MADE AVALANCHES

    ONLY "UNCONTROLLED " NATURAL AVALANCHES KILL OUR SOLDIERS

    THE EXPLOSION INSIDE A CAR ENGINE CYLINDER IS "CONTROLLED"

    AT SEA ARE ENGINES ARE HUGE

    WE TAKE CARE NOT TO HAVE "UNCONTROLLED EXPLOSIONS " IN THE CYLINDER

    THIS WILL BLAST OFF THE CYLINDER UNIT COVER .

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/07/draw-diagram-marine-two-stroke-main.html

    IF I WERE THE CHIEF OF ARMY STAFF -- NEUTRALISING "PROBABLE AVALANCHES" WILL BE PART OF MY WAR MANUAL

    ANY AVALANCHE TAKES PLACE KILLING MY MEN -I WILL RESIGN

    JAWANS IN AVALANCHE ZONE MUST WEAR A RADIO GPS TRACKER

    WHAT THE HELL IS ALL THIS--USING SNIFFER DOGS ?

    PUT THIS COMMENT IN PMs, HOME MINISTERs AND DEFENCE MINISERs WEBSITES.

  4. DIGRESSION:

    SUBJECT: LOCKING STABLE DOORS AFTER THE HORSES HAVE BOLTED ??

    I was a very successful Captain at sea as I did something which nobody did or even dreamt of at sea .

    I did PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE at sea—an unknown concept.

    When Capt Ajit Vadakayil predicts , you know how effective it can be.

    I treated every machinery like a human body-- which is the most complicated machine.

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2010/12/predictive-maintenance-on-chemical.html

    I ignored the company’s peabrained PMS ( Planned maintenance programme ) . This made my bosses very unhappy. But then I have always worked for my ship- never to keep my bosses happy. And my bosses knew that I run a good ship.

    http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/07/draw-diagram-marine-two-stroke-main.html

    I checked the emissions from the main air compressor in the engine room and found it had Lub Oil carryover. Then I monitored the compressor for a few days and found it was running 18 hours a day, when a healthy compressor must work less than 4 hours a bad in charging the air bottles .

    I had a site inspection of the main air compressors in the Engine room and found it was below the water level during loaded passage and that it was next to the shipside with the HP ( high pressure ) part facing the hull.

    I sent an email to the company—in New York—all pea brained white men in the office. .

    I demanded a 24 HOUR BLACKOUT AT THE BERTH IN BROWNSVILLE USA after cargo discharge .

    The company threw up .

    After all this demand was coming from a DECK BOY not the Chief Engineer.

    I told them – “Listen, I am getting off at Brownsville USA with my family as my contract is over . I am doing this for the next captain whose will NOT have a technical brain”

    The company replied that one day of idling after cargo discharge ( veg oils ) is unimaginable—there will be much of financial loss.

    Then I held a SAFETY COMMITTEE MEETING the same day

    I explained the scenario to all the engineers . None of them had the cerebral wherewithal to understand why I wanted INSTANT REPAIRS

    I made the MINUTES OF THE MEETING ( process verbal ) –got it signed by all officers and crew SAFETY REPS .

    The last line at the bottom was from Captain—

    NEVER LOCK THE STABLE DOORS AFTER THE HORSES HAVE BOLTED !

    This report was FAXED.

    All in the company read this—even the women.

    They all knew me well as a Captain par excellence . The PRESIDENT who knew me got involved .

    They sort of kept it on the back burner as the white skinned Engineer Techical bosses did not agree ( more out of jealousy ).

    This is despite me warning—if what I fear happens , we will not have time to launch our life boats. The engine room will lose its reserve buoyancy and the ship will sink in a jiffy with all souls

    Three days later I was woken up at 3PM ( after noon nap ) by a mighty explosion –the whole ship rocked.

    I ran down to the engine room telephoning Chief Engineer who was also sleeping to follow me to the starboard side at the main air compressor.

    The heavy compressor block has shattered and huge heavy pieces of steel projectiles destroyed everything in its path.

    LUCKILY THE HP SIDE FACING THE HULL WAS INTACT AS THE COMPRESSOR EXPLODED FROM THE LP SIDE.

    A FINE SPRAY OF LUB OIL HAS A LOWER IGNITION POINT THAT GASOLENE—HARDLY ANYBODY KNOWS THIS

    Within two minutes the Chief Engineer arrived at the spot.

    1. CONTINUED FROM 1-

      I told him I WANT TO INSPECT THE INTER COOLER PRESSURE RELIEF TEFLON ALUMINIUM DISC

      Then I went up to my cabin as send a terse message to the company in New York --THE HORSES HAVE BOLTED –and came down

      The pressure relief disc had ruptured . As I had predicted the spiral coil has got a hole, as black carbon absorbs and emits heat.

      Despite this lessened pressure the damage caused by flying steel projectiles inboard was unimaginable—they had smashed up heavy pipelines

      If you have a air gun, you put a lead pellet , pump it up and then shoot —how far does it go. Well this compressor produced 30 times that pressure

      Then I get a call from the radio officer SIR ALL AT NEWYORK WANT TO HEAR YOUR VOICE URGENTLY – IA HAVE TOLD THEM CAPTAIN IS IN THE ENGINE ROOM AFTER A MIGHTY EXPLOSION

      I went up and told them NO WE ARE NOT IN THE LIFEBOATS —talk to you later . I let them suffer. They all knew that their ASSES ARE ON THE LINE

      To cut a long story short –the ship was granted a 24 hour stay at an idle berth ( with blackout ) at Brownsville USA.

      I signed off with my wife and two sons , went to New York for de-briefing and had a two day holiday at New York .

      We went up the World Trade Centre –first time for my younger son—but my wife and elder son had been up several times before.

      Repairs?

      All 5 valves on the pipelines connecting the two huge main air compressor bottles were renewed . All were leaking.

      The compressors were not cutting off ( to take rest ) as both air bottles were running down together and the compressors were struggling to charge them back to the highest pressure ( cut in / cutout limits )

      So my compressors were like 45 years old , though the ship was just ten years old.

      http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/10/naive-sailor-main-air-compressors-capt.html

      WHEN I SAID , I WAS 100% COMPETENT AT SEA – EVEN MY MOST VICIOUS DETRACTORS DARE NOT DISAGREE.

      WHEN SUCH A THING HAPPENS YOU BECOME A LIVING LEGEND

      BECAUSE NO SHIP CAPTAIN KNOWS A SHIT ABOUT ENGINEERING

      ALL THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN PART OF MY BOOK “GAMES CAPTAIN PLAYED “ .. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN TOO EXPLOSIVE ..

      THIS INCIDENT WHICH WOULD WOW EVERY ENGINEER -- WOULD HAVE NOT BEEN IN THE TOP HUNDRED.
