The  Shipboard  Degaussing  System,  Continued - 14220_67
The  Shipboard  Degaussing  System Purpose When  a  ship  is  close  to  a  magnetic  mine  or  magnetic  torpedo,  the magnetic  field  of  the  ship  actuates  the  firing  mechanism  and  causes  the mine  or  torpedo  to  explode.  Degaussing  is  an  electrical  installation designed  to  protect  ships  against  magnetic  mines  and  torpedoes.  The purpose  of  degaussing  is  to  counteract  the  ship’s  magnetic  field  and establish  a  condition  such  that  the  magnetic  field  near  the  ship  is,  as nearly  as  possible,  just  the  same  as  if  the  ship  were  not  there. Components Shipboard  degaussing  installation  consists  of  permanently  installed degaussing  coils,  a  control  unit  to  control  the  coil  current,  and  compass compensating  equipment  to  prevent  disturbances  to  the  magnetic compasses  by  the  magnetic  field  of  the  degaussing  coils.  Figure  2-9 illustrates  the  types  of  coils  that  are  found  on  a  typical  degaussing installation.
