engine-room titanic

 

Titanic’s engine room was equipped with a parsons low pressure turbine engine as well as two tipple expansion reciprocating steam engines the turbine engine ran at 165 RMP and produced 16,000 horse power whilst the reciprocating engines ran at 75 RMP generating 30,000 horse power, The three engines together were sufficient enough to push the ship to a speed of around 24 knots

The huge engines were the size of a large house about 30 feet in height weighing in at 1,000 tons.

The engineering crew consisted of around 336 men these included electricians, greasers, firemen and trimmers most of the engine crew perished in the disaster mainly due to their location in the depths of the ship, only 70 members of the engineering crew survived.

The condition of the engines On the wreck of the ship is relatively good except for being covered in rusticles, along with titanic’s brass propellers the engines are expected to remain long after the rest of the ship has gone.
