About This Item


Full Description

The purpose of this standard is to provide the minimum general requirements for the design, construction, installation, operation, inspection, and maintenance of mechanical refrigerating and air-conditioning equipment aboard ship to permit the safe, efficient, and reliable operation of such systems. This standard covers a) refrigerating and air-conditioning systems that are an integral part of the main mechanical plant of merchant, fishing, and seafood-processing ships and b) refrigerated seawater and brine-chilling systems that air condition and dehumidify passenger and cargo spaces, chill or freeze perishable cargoes, or maintain storage of chilled or frozen cargo. This standard does not cover details of system designs or applications; small, self-contained units that are not an integral part of the ship's main mechanical plant, such as electric water coolers, reach-in refrigerators, and room air conditioners; cargo containers with self-contained refrigerating systems; or liquefied gas ships.
