Water-Cooled Panel Assembly
A water-cooled panel assembly (fig. 5-4) is a
reinforced ribb-based aluminum alloy structure
containing water inlet and outlet piping. Each panel
assembly contains 14 tube assemblies and 7 removable
module assemblies and attached hinge and lift fittings.
The module assemblies are fastened to the panel base
by screws, thereby permitting easy removal in the event
of module failure. Each module contains water
passages connected to inlet and outlet water manifolds
by tube assemblies. Seawater, supplied from the ships
firemain is continuously circulated through the
individual module assemblies to dissipate heat
