Paceco, Inc., a subsidiary of

Fruehauf Corporation, a major manufacturer of container-han- dling cranes, recently completed its move from Alameda, Calif., to Gulfport, Miss. Paceco has in- vested more than $26 million in expanding its 100-acre fabrica- tion facility during the past two years. The facility has in excess of 10 acres of under-roof fabri- cation area, including a new 58,- 800-square-foot, air conditioned machine shop.

The fabrication area is con- nected by rail to a new 38,650- square-foot, environmentally con- trolled metal preparation and coating facility, and within walk- ing distance of the new three- story headquarters building. The

New computer software program measures plant efficiency before and after catalyst use. • Do fuel oil additives work? • Will they lower operating costs and save fuel? • Are they cost effective?

Ferrous Corporation has developed a computer software program that can tell you exactly how much a specific fuel additive changes the efficiency of your marine boiler or diesel.

We wanted the facts! The program was developed to test Ferrous

Combustion Catalyst. For years we had observed the effects of Ferrous

Catalyst: reduced boiler slag and engine deposits; less smoke and acid corrosion and less need for excess air.

We assumed that these improvements would also save fuel. But we wanted to prove it with accurate and acceptable data processing techniques.

Here's how it works.

Input data comes directly from you. All the input for the program comes directly from your engine room log. No special equipment or training is necessary.

The Ferrous software program evaluates the data and applies a number of correcting factors to determine changes in plant efficiency and trends in performance.

Before and after tests show significant results. Once the data has been analyzed, Ferrous prepares a report interpreting the results. Changes in propulsion plant efficiency are shown in easy to understand graphs.

To date, reports show efficiency improvements ranging from 4% to 8%. This means each gallon of

Ferrous Catalyst saves three to six barrels of fuel.

We can show you the proof! Sure we'd like to and most modern of its kind, is located on the Harrison County

Industrial Seaway.

Activities at the plant include heavy steel fabrication of con- tainer-handling, bulk-handling, and heavy-lift cranes for onshore and offshore applications, as well as contract manufacturing and fabrication for the offshore in- dustry including complex sub- assemblies that require sophisti- cated machining capabilities. Pa- ceco licensees are located in Ja- pan, Korea, Canada, Italy, Africa,

England, France, Australia, Bra- zil, and Spain.

Paceco and its licensees produce the Portainer® ship-to-shore con- tainer cranes with maximum ca- pacities of 51 tons, suitable for rail spans of 36 to 164 feet, as well as high-speed "Mach" cranes that can be fully automated. Mod- els available include A-frame, modified A-frame, low profile, ar- ticulated boom, and economy feed- er port model. All are available with adjustable lifting spreaders.

Rotating trolleys are also avail- able.

Also in the Paceco line is a range of rubber-tired and rail- mounted Transtainer® gantry type cranes for container termi- nal operations. The basic range has maximum capacities of 40 tons with spans up to 77 feet.

Rail-mounted Transtainers have spans up to 164 feet. The stand- ard rubber-tired units span six rows of containers stacked four or five high plus a truck lane.

Design features include 90-degree change of travel direction to fa- cilitate changing stacking lanes or areas. Options include auto- mated steering and other fea- tures compatible with computer link or automated terminal de- sign.

Paceco also produces a large number of Shipstainer shipboard gantry type container cranes.

These are normally installed when vessels are trading with ports where no shoreside container- handling facilities are available.

In addition, a range of heavy-lift cranes is available for barge or ship mounting. These large re- volving-boom cranes have lifting capacities from 250 to 3,000 tons.
