Walter Machine Outfits Casino Vessels With Keel Coolers

The Walter Machine Co. of Jersey City, N.J. supplied Walter Keel Coolers on the Bender-built Star Casino, the first gaming vessel to open in Louisiana.

Walter Keel Coolers have been used on a number of other gaming vessels to cool propulsion engines, auxiliary engines and air-conditioning systems.

Keel coolers are a proven form of marine engine cooling, since their completely closed-loop cooling system eliminates the possibility of clogged sea strainers and raw water pump failures in dirty or iceladen waters.

Featuring 70/30 cupronickel "Turbo Tube," Walter Keel Coolers' streamlined design conforms to hull curvatures and does not require recessing.

Prefabricated Walter Keel Coolers save thousands of pounds of weight on the hull, translating into reduced operating costs, according to the manufacturer.

Walter's Sea Chest model has also been reported to significantly decrease installation time since it eliminates the need for cofferdams inside the hull. Walter offers keel Drawing of Walter Machine keel cooler circuit. coolers for propulsion and auxiliary engines from 10 to 5,000 hp, including Caterpillar, Cummins, Detroit Diesel, Volvo Penta, MAN, GM EMD, John Deere, Lugger and more.

Established in 1927, Walter Machine Co. also manufactures a complete line of marine and industrial gear drives (V-Drives, reduction gears and speed increasers).
