Brochure Describes

Removal Of Smoke

From Air Vents

Vent Fog Precipitators, to re- move oil mist and smoke from the air of breathing vents on ma- rine operating machinery, are now being marketed by Bull & Rob- erts, Inc. They are designed for installation on compressors, tur- bines, reduction gear cases, diesel engines, lube oil systems and sim- ilar applications.

Normally in lubricating sys- tems, petroleum-based and syn- thetic oils break down into fine mist and smoke particles which escape through bearing seals to breather vents where they are exhausted. Unless they are re- covered, they can create health and fire hazards, violate air pol- lution codes, and foul relays and other electronic components.

All six models meet MIL-STD requirements of high impact shock, environmental vibration and electronic interference, and are manufactured to military specifications. For an illustrated brochure, write to John M. Walsh,

Bull & Roberts, Inc., 785 Central

Avenue, Murray Hill, N.J. 07974.

When bigger barges are built,

Wiley will build them.

A case in point: Pittston Marine's new tank barge, a floating oil field over 315 feet long was recently built by

Wiley. Designed for manned coastwise service or unmanned ocean service, the "Rockland" carries up to 70,000 barrels of Grade A petroleum products and lower, with approximately 3.4 miles of heating coils for hot oil.

Deep well pumps are on the deck, with drive engines in an all- weather enclosure. A recessed house for quarters and galley is heated and air-conditioned.

The "Rockland" is the latest in the Wiley built deck, tank, dump, crane and coal barges; clamshell dredges; tugs and towboats; tankers, passenger and fishing vessels. With

Wiley's broad marine capabilities, we can custom-build to your specifications.
