L&C Designs And Installs Dehumidification And Monitoring System For General Cargo Ship
L&C Associates, North Hampton, N.H., an industry leader in the design and installation of dehumidification, sealing and monitoring systems for the marine market, recently announced the completion of the installation of an innovative dehumidification, sealing, and monitoring system for the American Kestrel, chartered to the Military Sealift Command.
The Kestrel is a prepositioned, general cargo ship chartered to carry breakbulk cargo. The system, designed and installed by L&C to meet MSC specifications, consists of monitoring and dehumidifaction systems which service each of the vessel's six holds.
A major component of the system is a Cargo Environment Monitoring System (CEM), which includes air flow sensors and humidity sensors. The area monitored by the CEM exceeds 1.2 million cubic feet.
The CEM includes a computerized data retrieval and recording system, as required by MSC specs, designed by L&C. This unit compiles and computes functions and transmits data to a logger located in the deck office. Data can be downloaded via PC to floppy disks or nonvolatile EERPOM storage cartridges.
