Engelhard To Provide

Cathodic Protection For 16 Navy Destroyers

The Ingalls Shipbuilding Division of Litton Industries has signed a contract with Engelhard Industries,

Murray Hill, N.J., for its Systems

Department to provide Capac® ca- thodic protection systems for installa- tion on 16 new U.S. Navy multimis- sion destroyers. The first of the new destroyers, the USS Spruance (DD- 963), has already been launched and six more are now in production. In- galls is building the Spruance de- stroyers under a multiyear contract awarded to the company in 1970.

The Engelhard Capac automatical- ly controlled cathodic protection sys- tems being installed consist of plati- nized anodes along with the standard

Capac reference electrode, internal power supply and control equipment.

The 563-foot Spruance is primarily an antisubmarine vessel, but will have other missions as well. It can be assigned to bombard shore positions, support amphibious assaults, escort military and merchant ship convoys, perform surveillance and trailing of hostile surface ships, establish block- ades and undertake search and rescue operations.

The Capac-protected destroyer is 150 feet longer than the latest class of destroyer now in the Navy fleer.

With a speed in excess of 30 knots, it will be among the fastest Navy ships.
