L&C Associates Installs Protective Sealing System Aboard USNS Mispillion

Installation of a Protective Sealing System aboard the jumboized oiler USNS Mispillion was recently completed in San Francisco, Calif., by L&C Associates, Inc. of North Hampton, N.H.

The Mispillion, assigned National Defense Reserve status, must conform to a rigorous reactivation schedule which includes a 50-90 day "breakout" in the event of an emergency.

L&C's patented Protective Sealing System, a flexible, sprayapplied, strippable seal, is used to protect the ship from moistureinduced corrosion. The strippable nature of the seal assures that the "breakout" requirements will be met.

L&C engineers and technicians designed and installed the dehumidification, sealing, and alarm system for the vessel featuring a 600- CFM dehumidifier, and PSS. The alarm network monitors the moisture content of the air in the dehumidified spaces. The turnkey installation was completed within five days.
