Baldt Introduces New Rapid Release System

—Literature Available Baldt Incorporated of Chester, Pa., recently introduced the second generation MOOR-FREE™ II rapid release system, the latest in a series of developments that allow rig operators to free a vessel from its moorings instantaneously. Significant improvements were implemented into the original MOOR-FREE system to provide longer service life and increased flexibility. The new system is illustrated and described in detail in a new four-page, twocolor Engineering Innovations technical bulletin (#005) offered free of charge by the company.

An increased battery life of approximately six months, and the ability to position the disconnect link anywhere in the chain length are two product refinements that were developed to make the new unit a permanent part of the active system. As with the original system, MOOR-FREE II combines advanced acoustic detonation technology with the performance-proven Baldt chain connecting link concept.

The system is totally self-contained and requires no outside assistance from supply/support vessels.

Baldt's continuing research, development, and testing for M0ORFREE II have resulted in a system that provides: instantaneous release of vessel moorings; Grade 4 compatibility; Extended battery life; increased operating depth of 2,500 feet; maximum flexibility; and maximum efficiency.

MOOR-FREE II system components include Baldt's unique disconnect link, detonating bolt assembly, acoustic transducer, and command transmitter.
