Section 13 Screwshafts, tube shafts and propellers


13.1 Frequency of surveys
13.1.1. Shafts with keyed propeller attachments and fitted with continuous liners or approved oil glands, or made of approved corrosion resistant materials, are to be surveyed at intervals of six years when the keyway complies fully with the present Rules. 13.1.2. Shafts having keyless type propeller attachments are to be surveyed at intervals of six years provided they are fitted with approved oil glands or are made of approved corrosion resistant materials. 13.1.3. Shafts having solid coupling flanges at the after end are to be surveyed at intervals of six years provided they are fitted with approved oil glands or are made of approved corrosion resistant materials. 13.1.4. All other shafts not covered by 13.1.1 to 13.1.3 are to be surveyed at intervals of 3 years. 13.1.5. Controllable pitch propellers for main propulsion purposes are to be surveyed at the same intervals as the screwshaft. 13.1.6. Directional propeller and podded propulsion units for main propulsion purposes are to be surveyed at intervals not exceeding six years. 13.1.7. Water jet units for main propulsion purposes are to be surveyed at intervals not exceeding six years provided the impeller shafts are made of approved corrosion resistant material or have approved equivalent arrangements. 13.1.8 . Dynamic positioning and/or thruster assisted mooring and athwartship thrust propellers and shaftings are to be surveyed at intervals not exceeding six years.

13.2 Normal surveys


13.2.1. All screwshafts are to be withdrawn for examination by LR Surveyors at the intervals prescribed in 13.1.1 to 13.1.4. The after end of the cylindrical part of the shaft and forward one third of the shaft cone, or fillet of the flange, is to be examined by a magnetic particle crack detection method. In the case of a keyed propeller attachment at least the forward one third of the shaft cone is to be examined with the key removed. Weardown is to be measured and the sterntube bearings, oil glands, propellers and fastenings are to be examined. Controllable pitch propellers where fitted are to be opened up and the working parts examined, together with the control gear. 13.2.2. Directional propeller and podded propulsion units are to be dismantled for examination of the propellers, shafts, gearing, and control and electrical gear. 13.2.3. Water Jet Units are to be dismantled for examination of the impeller, casing, shaft, shaft seal, shaft bearing, inlet and outlets channels, steering nozzle, reversing arrangements, and control gear. 13.2.4. Dynamic positioning and/or thruster assisted mooring and athwartship thrust propellers are to be generally examined so far as is possible in dry-dock and tested under working conditions afloat for satisfactory operation 13.2.5. Podded propulsion unit screwshaft roller bearings are to be renewed when the residual calculated life at the maximum continuous rating at time of survey, no longer exceeds the survey interval. See Vol 2, Pt 4, Ch 4,6.3.8.

13.3 Screwshaft Condition Monitoring (SCM)


13.3.1. Where oil lubricated shafts with approved oil glands are fitted, a machinery notation SCM (Screwshaft Condition Monitoring) may be assigned provided that the following conditions are complied with: (a). Lubricating oil analysis to be carried out regularly at intervals not exceeding six months. The lubricating oil analysis documentation is to be available on board. Each analysis is to include the following minimum parameters: (i). Water content.

(ii). Chloride content. (iii). Bearing material and metal particles content. (iv). Oil ageing (resistance to oxidation). Oil samples are to be taken under service conditions and are to be representative of the oil within the sterntube. (b). Oil consumption is to be recorded. (c). Bearing temperatures are to be recorded (two temperature sensors or other approved arrangements are to be provided). (d). Facilities are to be provided for measurement of bearing weardown. (e). Oil glands are to be capable of being replaced without withdrawal of the screwshaft. 13.3.2. For maintenance of SCM notation, the records of analyses, consumption and temperature, together with weardown readings are to be retained onboard and audited annually. 13.3.3. Where the notation SCM has been assigned the screwshaft need not be withdrawn at surveys as required by 13.2.1 provided all condition monitoring data is found to be within permissible limits and all exposed areas of the shaft are examined by a magnetic particle crack detection method. The remaining requirements of 13.2.1 are to be complied with. Where the Surveyor considers that the data presented is not entirely to his satisfaction the shaft will be required to be withdrawn in accordance with 13.2.1.

13.4 Modified Survey


13.4.1. A Modified Survey may be accepted at alternate six-yearly surveys for shafts described in 13.1.1 provided they are fitted with oil lubricated bearings and approved oil glands, and also for those in 13.1.2 and 13.1.3. 13.4.2. The Modified Survey is to consist of the partial withdrawal of the shaft, sufficient to ascertain the condition of the stern bearing and shaft in way. For keyless propellers or shafts with a solid flange connection to the propeller a visual examination to confirm the good condition of the sealing arrangements is to be made. The oil glands are to be capable of being replaced without removal of the propeller. The forward bearing and all accessible parts including the propeller connection to the shaft are to be examined as far as possible. Wear down is to be measured and found satisfactory. Where a controllable pitch propeller is fitted, at least one of the blades is to be dismantled complete for examination of the working parts and the control gear. 13.4.3. For keyed propellers, the after end of the cylindrical part of the shaft and forward one third of the shaft cone is to be examined by a magnetic particle crack detection method, for which dismantling of the propeller and removal of the key will be required. 13.4.4. Where the notation SCM has been assigned as described in 13.3.1 and all data is found to be within permissible limits, partial withdrawal of the shaft may not be required. Where doubt exists regarding any of the above findings the shaft is to be withdrawn to permit an entire examination.

13.5 Partial Survey


13.5.1. For shafts where the Modified Survey is applicable, upon application by the Owner, LR will be prepared to give consideration to postponement of the survey for a maximum period of half the specified cycle provided a Partial Survey is held. 13.5.2. The Partial Survey is to consist of the propeller being backed off in any keyed shaft and the top half of the cone examined by an efficient crack detection method for which removal of the key will be required. Oil gland and seals are to be examined and dealt with as necessary. Weardown is to be measured and found satisfactory. Propeller and fastenings are to be examined. 13.5.3. LR will be prepared to give consideration to the circumstances of any special case upon application by the Owner.
