Sailed on a Wah Kwong tanker with this system. The vessel had very large accommodation for training cadets, although we never carried many. The system went "off" in the Perishing Gulf and we had to clean the condenser. Took us 8 hours of tube punching in shifts, due to the temps in the E.R. Of course lots of moaning from up top as it was "very hot" on the bridge and in the accomm. When we had it boxed up and running, I brought the accomm down to about 15 degrees C. Not a peep from anyone!
