Marine Applications Book Availble From Sandusky

An eight-page booklet published by Sandusky Foundry & Machine Co. of Sandusky, Ohio, is devoted to applications of Sandusky centrifugal castings to the shipbuilding industry.

The booklet, written for marine designers, illustrates Sandusky centrifugal castings used for propulsion shaft sleeves, stern tubes and bushings, rudder stock sleeves and bushings, hawse pipes, and even dredge spuds and spud sleeves. Mention is made also of the use of Sandusky cylinders for naval vessels for snorkel tubes, radar masts, torpedo ejection cylinders, and steering and diving gear hydraulic cylinders.

A table in the book lists typical compositions of a wide variety of metals for marine usage. Included are specifications and compositions for such metals as cooper-base alloys, cooper-nickel alloys, nickelbase alloys, carbon and alloy steels, and high alloy steels.

In addition to being illustrated with photos of a wide variety of castings, the booklet strikes an interesting historical note with the reproduction of a 1925 advertisement pointing up that by then Sandusky was the major supplier of centrifugally cast shaft sleeves and bushings to American shipbuilders, and containing photos of the Levianthan (the largest passenger ship then afloat), supplied in 1925, and the U.S. Navy's battleship Maryland and the crusier Richmond, supplied in 1920 and 1921, respectively.
