Ventilation in engine room

Postby Frodo » Thu Feb 06, 2020 8:15 pm

My previous boats have had a fan to make sure ventilation is good in the engine room. Currently my HR29 does not have such ventilation. What is the status on your boats? Is it required or optional? Want to ask the forum before i install a fan.

En mi HR 29 hay un tubo plastico que sale de la sala del motor por la parte de babor y sube por dentro del cofre hasta la parte superior y alli se queda. Si se pone una bomba para ventilar la sala, debe ser de aspiracion del aire de la misma, y nunca de toma del exterior e introducirla dentro, pues afecta al sistema de aspiracion del motor que trabaja a presion natural y no forzada. En los motores diesel no es demasiado relevante si no estan en los mares del mediterraneo en verano donde hay elevadas temperaturas. Siempre facilita, pero no es determinante. otra cosa es en los motores de gasolina, que en algunos paises es obligatorio.

Thank you Manel, I will leave the ventilation as-is for now. Seems like it is not critical, so this can be on the to-do later list.
