Wilson Walton Receives
Two Contracts For
Wilson Walton International of
Stockton-on-Tees, Cleveland (UK), recently received two contracts to provide rapid emergency service to two ship operators.
The first contract, for a Norwe- gian customer, involved the replace- ment of a scrubber base tank, part of the ship's inert gas system, which has suffered damage through over heating.
Since the ship's inert gas system had been designed, built and in- stalled by Wilson Walton, the com- pany built a replacement base tank and rubber-lined it in just three weeks.
The second contract, for a U.S. customer, was to design, fabricate and ship two pressure vacuum breakers for two vessels in port in
Italy. The contract also required the supply of complete installation drawings. The total contract took only 10 days to finish the one-ton units. Each pressure vacuum break- er had a 12,000 m;lhr. capacity and was approximately 7 "2 -feet high and 4.3 feet in diameter.

Sale Of Imperial Survival
Suits Approaches 100,000 —Literature Available
Sales of cold-water survival suits by Imperial Manufacturing Compa- ny of Bremerton, Wash., approach 100,000 this year, according to pro- duction manager Jim Skelly. A big boost in sales for the company, which has been producing survival suits for 15 years, came last summer when new U.S. Coast Guard re- quirements became effective. Inter- est of the marine community in improving protection against drowning and hypothermia—death from loss of body heat—continues to increase both in the U.S. and abroad.
In a four-month period last sum- mer, Imperial sold 8,500 survival suits, nearly its total sales volume in some years. According to Mr.
Skelly, Imperial supplies 75 per- cent of the U.S. market for survival suits, with the remaining produc- tion split among a handful of com- panies.
Imperial has worked with various governing bodies, including the
Coast Guard and Underwriters Lab- oratory, in testing and developing safe standards, and is said to be the only U.S. manufacturer of survival suits to pass the Norwegian Mari- time Directorate standards, the most stringent in the world. More than 300 individuals have reported incidents where their lives were saved through the use of Imperial survival suits.
