Equipment

Salt Water Inlets

Even trying hard to reduce to the maximum the number of "holes" in the hull, there still are too many.

2    engine cooling water inlets with 1 1/2" Forespar marelon flanged seacocks, in the engine room.

2    auxiliary salt water inlets with 1 1/2" Forespar marelon flanged seacocks, in the engine room.

1    generator cooling water inlet with 1 1/2" Forespar marelon flanged seacock.

1    air conditioning water inlet with 1 1/2" Forespar marelon flanged seacock.

The flanged valves are bolted to a flanged piece of aluminum pipe welded to the hull.

Forespar's line of valves offer great strength, light weight, and complete freedom from corrosion and electrolysis making them the ideal valve for controlling inlet and outlet water requirements above and below the waterline. 

They are precision molded and then machined from high strength, glass reinforced MarelonŽ and incorporate TeflonŽ seals for long-life, trouble free operation. These valves have been tested underwater utilizing 80 psi air pressure, after 11,000 opening and closing cycles, and they showed no signs of leaks or wear on their internal seals.

Forespar's Component Style Seacocks are precision molded in high-strength, glass-reinforced, non-corrosive MarelonŽ. Their great strength, light weight, and complete freedom from corrosion and electrolysis make them the ideal valve for controlling inlet and outlet water requirements above and below the waterline. Teflon seals are standard on all valves ranging from 1/2" to 2".   Threads are parallel threads.
