Assembly of the superstructure

in Shipbuilding


In the case of cruise liners, aluminium superstructures are also installed. Sections made from this material have a weight advantage and enable higher superstructures than comparable ones made of steel. Thus, larger ships can be built, allowing larger numbers of passengers. The welding and cutting processes used to make the sections are similar for both aluminium and steel. However, the welding processes with aluminium require the use of inert gases. Thus, arc welding methods such as MSG welding (here, MIG welding) or laser beam welding are applicable, but not gas welding or flame cutting.

Functionalty of regulators

Pressure regulators are used for the withdrawal of gases from their packaging. 

The main function of a regulator is to reduce the cylinder's internal pressure so that the gas content can be used for the desired application. In the simple case of a single cylinder supply, the pressure regulator is connected directly onto the cylinder valve.

The operation of regulators is based on the forces acting on the valve cone, which are in equilibrium with each other.

Contributions to this equilibrium include, on the one hand, the forces of the closing spring and inlet pressure p1 and, on the other hand, the forces of the adjusting spring and outlet pressure p2.

The use of a diaphragm seals the gas cylinder content from the environment and is mechanically connected to the valve of the pressure regulator. With the adjusting screw on the pressure regulator, it is possible to change the adjusting screw pressure and thus set the desired outlet pressure.
