MTTC / Navy Fleet Maintenance Projects-

Current Status (8/1/00)


Portable Chlorinator.  The installation of injection ports and other ship modifications is complete.  All equipment and supplies have been delivered to the USS CARR. Operational tests are ongoing.

 

Topside Connector Corrosion Protection.   The "Gel-in-the-Middle"clamshell connector cover tests have led to the conclusion that this product will not meet Navy needs.  However, the Rayvolve (type N, roll-on) cover, which was also included in this project, has shown excellent results to date.  While laboratory tests are ongoing, several were installed on the Phalanx CIWS mount on USS MCCLUSKY (FFG-41) Shipboard technicians have used the re-entry capability and have expressed great satisfaction with the concept.

 

K-Flex Eco Insulation.   Operational tests were complete on USS RUSHMORE Laboratory tests of hardened material removed from RUSHMORE are ongoing. Upon completion of these tests, the Navy will make an acceptance decision.

 

Remote Valve Actuators.  This project has been modified and expanded.  The original effort to test two Tri-Tec actuators has been scaled back to one unit which was installed on USS G. WASHINGTON. An additional actuator, manufactured by Limitorque is being procured and will be installed on USS T. ROOSEVELT.

  

Ecotherm High Temperature Insulation.   MTTC has issued a work order to BBN, Inc. Test sections of the insulating material were installed on the USS BOXER in May 2000. At sea test have commenced.

 

Distilling Plant Anti-Scale. NAVSEA has provided a Statement of Work and MTTC is initiating discussions with NSWC/CD/SSES, Philadelphia, PA. A contract is expected shortly.

 

Anti-Sweat Paint. NAVSEA has provided a Statement of Work and MTTC is initiating discussions with GeoCenters, Inc. A contract is expected shortly.
