Steam Jet Air conditioning systems

(Steam ejector 'vacuum' above water) Texaco Denmark had the system I remember on by first trip as it failed. Later on I think Bridgeton had had it but was replaced as it took too much in the way of fuel.

Yup! worked fine when the condenser was clean but soon fell away, had it on one ship that was going into dry dock in Bahrain the company wanted us to live on board during the docking, asked us how much shoreside steam would be required and could not believe the answer. Ended up being bused to and from an airconditioned hotel after two days on board without A/C

Thanks all, from memory on the Danish class when the system was in the mood, was definitely an extra blanket on the bunk. When it did not work...……..
