Abstract:

Growths taken from the hydraulic suction auto clean strainer of H.M.S. HERMES were found to be a mixed flora of hyphomycetes and ascomycetes the former was identified as species of Asper gillus while the latter proved to be a sporo genous yeast. Tests carried out with various concentrations of Panacide Sodium showed that a concentration of 1 in 1000 was effective in killing the growths. Recommendations are made for cleaning the system and for adding and maintaining the required concentration of fungicide in the hydraulic fluid.
