Deepwell Barge Pumps
Transamerica Delaval, Pyramid
Pump Division, Monroe, N.C., is offering a free, four-page brochure on their AMR™ Vertical Deepwell
The brochure, which comes with three binder holes for easy storage, is entitled "AMR Vertical Deepwell
Barge Pumps For New Installa- tions, Replacements, or Conver- sions."
According to the publication, for economical conversions from cen- trifugal units, AMR pumps replace centrifugal pumps plus supporting stripping; fit most common size deepwells (24-inch diameter or larg- er); and utilize standard deepwell centrifugal pump columns and dis- charge heads.
In addition, the text of the bro- chure states that AMR pumps elim- inate the initial cost of expensive stripping systems, as well as permit- ting the use of smaller drivers than required by centrifugal pumps, and do not need to have the product heated to acceptable centrifugal pump temperatures.
Some of the special features which highlight the brochure are: a cutaway drawing showing the "sim- ple design" (no timing gears, preci- sion bearings or mechanical seals) of pump type 4131C-800JD; a graph of typical VUP-4131C-800JD data; and a drawing showing the typical deepwell systems dimensions.

Nissen Metal Marker
Readable At 2,100° F —Literature Available
A high temperature metal marker usable in metalworking applications such as heat treating, coding and identification for hot castings and forgings, and layout work for cutting and brazing has been introduced by
J.P. Nissen Company, Glenside,
According to the manufacturer, under independent testing the marker has been proven to exhibit readability with 24 hours of contin- uous exposure to temperatures up to 1,700°F. In an uncontrolled at- mosphere, marks were clearly read- able at the end of the following test cycles: 500°F, 1,325°F and 1,550°F using time cycles of one, four, 16 and 24 hours; 1,700°F, 1,900°F and 2,100°F using time cycles of one, two, four, nine, 16, 20 and 24 hours.
The marker utilizes a lead-free proprietary pigment and base for- mulation in conjunction with the patented Nissen® ball point to pro- vide economical, durable marking on wet, dry, oily, rough and smooth surfaces.

SNAME Southeast Section
Holds General Meeting
A general meeting of the South- east Section of The Society of Naval
Architects and Marine Engineers was held recently at the Jackson- ville Hilton, Jacksonville, Fla.
The theme of the meeting was the conversion and repair of the cruise ship M/V Skyward, operated by
Norwegian Caribbean Lines. The vessel was in drydock at Jackson- ville Shipyards, Inc. for extensive repairs and fitting of a new bulbous bow.
The all-day technical session was convened by vice chairman-North
Andy Lebet. The first presenta- tion, titled "The Operator's Per- spective" by Svenn Dahl, senior vice president, operations, Norwe- gian Caribbean Lines, discussed the reasons behind adding the bulbous bow, stern skirt and various other means of reducing operating costs.
