According to a NASSCO spokes- man, the boilers will be installed aboard three 38,000-ton oil/gasoline/ kerosene tankers being built at a cost of over $65 million for the Moore &
Each of the boilers is designed to generate 57,030 pounds of steam per hour, with a superheater outlet pres- sure of 615 pounds per square inch, and temperature of 905 .degrees Fah- renheit when firing at the normal load rate of 4,035 pounds of No. 6 oil per hour.

Savings are phenomenal when Sky Climber
Suspended Scaffold Systems replace conven- tional scaffolding. Capital expenditures reduced 50%...profits improved when rigging and set up labor were reduced by 93%.. .set up time for hold insulation was cut 61 %. That's the kind of reports we get from shipbuilders and owners who use Sky Climber systems.
Sky Climber Suspended Scaffolds reduce the costly time, labor, and material waste of staging and stripping complex scaffolding. They work equally well on ships in dry doc!- or afloat...on hull exteriors or interior hold, bulkhead, and tank surfaces.
Electric or air-powered Sky Climber hoists climb wire ropes to raise or lower the scaffold.
Rail or spurnwater riders move them horizontally.
With special accessories, the Sky Climber scaf- fold follows the contours of the hull or inclined interior surfaces, so all exposed surfaces are reached. Workers do a better job without stoop- ing, squatting, stretching, or climbing; because they can position themselves and their equip- ment exactly right.
In this world of rising costs, here is one area where you can save time, labor, and money— and get a better job done. Write or call for de- tailed information.
