What is the name of this
Many people believe that piracy was something that started with the April 2009 attack
on the Maersk Alabama. Professional mariners are well aware of earlier incidents
involving the Faina or Sirius Star (above). Overall, security is a growing industry and
we feature links to a few government maritime security jobs on the gov't jobs page.

Animation depicting how the frozen compressed air supply
caused the the terrible loss. lic.2.5 attribution.anynobody
On April 10, 1963, the nuclear submarine USS Thresher was lost with all hands during tests off
New England. As tragic as the event was, it was perhaps equally sad that an air drier in the
outlet side of the compressor could have prevented the disaster. During the order to blow
ballast from the tanks, compressed air did what it always tends to do in classic thermodynamic
fashion... it gets colder as it passes through and orifice and expands. In doing so, it froze in the
strainers admitting compressed air to the ballast tanks.
On subsequent submarines, this led to the installation of air driers on the discharge sides of air
compressors. If there is any consolation to come from this tragic catastrophe, it might be that
the lessons learned could serve to prevent such an event from happening again to other
members of silent services of the world. Engineers, scientists, technicians, maintenance, field
service people who are interested the operation and maintenance of compressors, air driers
and auxiliary equipment could consider looking into job opportunities at Ingersoll Rand, one of
the giants in the compressed air and industry.
