What is Watertight Door?

A watertight door is a type of marine door that is used for ships. 

This door is perfect in certain regions where there is an excessive risk of flood. It acts as the safest barrier due to its strong ability to prevent the unstoppable ingress and spreading of water from one compartment, mainly when floods or accidents occur. 

It is commonly installed in some areas where engines and shaft tunnel of the ship is found. 

Additionally, watertight doors can significantly resist any water pressure and create to withstand any weather condition. 

What are the Types of Watertight Door?

Watertight doors are classified into different types powered through an electronic motor or other mechanical controls. 

Hinged Watertight Door

  • This door can be open and closed in an outward motion.

  • It is commonly located above the waterline of the ship.
What is the Proper Way to Maintaining Watertight Door?

The watertight door must undergo regular inspections and maintenance to ensure its normal and consistent operations. 

In doing maintenance, it is needed to check first the overall function of the whole system including the:

  • Warning alarms and related devices
  • The hydraulic and electric mechanical power
  • Fluid level indicators
  • Lights
  • Valves
  • Seal

On the other hand, related inspection and maintenance must be based upon the general maintenance system.

  • The watertight door, including the frames and the gasket, should be permanently clean. 
  • Watch out for the possible cracks, corrosion, and other structural damages to a watertight door. 
  • Check the wheels, bearings, and rails for possible damages and defects. 
  • Check the condition of the hydraulic system for possible leakings.
  • Check for the connections of pumps, pipe, hydraulic cylinder, and hand pump.
  • Must lubricate all mechanical parts during maintenance. 
  • Ensure that the watertight door must have instructions and reminders attached to it. 

Insufficiency of proper maintenance and inspection of watertight doors can lead to excessive danger and risk, which probably affects the overall performance of the vessel and the life of every individual.
