|Here is the Siphon Break on the Volvo TMD 22 P Diesel Engine
Sea water comes in through the white hose to the transmission cooler
Transmission to raw water pump
Then through heat exchanger
then goes Up to the Siphon Break
Goes up to the Siphon Break
(note: the white coolant box on the top right of the picture is for the genset)
after the Siphon break goes to the Exhaust Mixing Elbow
Now becomes red arrow, then to what I think is a muffler
Then back up again through the big exhaust hose
Close up of the Siphon Break
Note the doted Green arrow: that is a real "siphon breaker".
it is a small pipe that allow air to go trough, so that it will not "siphon" back water to your engine
View from the top
Doted green arrow is the small pipe from the siphon break to outside.
Then water will just run to the big whole that evacuate water from your cockpit
Close up of the end of the pipe allowing the air to come in and water to leave.
