Free Literature Available On Long-Life Marine Window Wipers For Ships

A new marine window wiper that will give longer life in the harsh conditions at sea, has been designed by Wynstruments Limited of Gloucester, England. The equipment simplifies ordering because the one model can be fitted above or below the window, with the motor on the left or right, and with varying lengths of wiper blades.

The Wynn Model "C" Straight- Line Wiper is easy to install and maintain, and has many design features to ensure trouble free operation.

There is a quick release system for removal of the wipers for servicing, and the entire mechanism is accessible by the removal of a front cover secured by two fasteners.

The arm and blade assembly is rigidly supported by a carriage plate that features eight heavy-duty guide rollers which run on the inside surface of the aluminum wiper casing.

Incorporated in the body of the wiper is a deicing system to keep the carriage plate and its rollers operating in the harshest of conditions.

The heaters are of standard lengths and interconnected to fit any casing length.

A long carriage plate has been designed to give the wiper blade arm greater support and to provide rigidity to the wiper blades during operation. The eight rollers on the carriage plate lead to it being constrained and supported better. The diameter and materials of the rollers have been chosen to reduce skidding and seizing. Each roller is fitted with two tires of wear resistant material for good grip between the roller and the inside of the wiper case.

The reciprocating motion of the carriage plate and blade arm assembly is provided by a V-belt and crank shaft assembly. The V-belt runs around an electric motor driven drive pulley and an idler pulley which features a shock absorbing mechanism to extend the life of the drive belt.

The arm and blade assembly are fully adjustable, and blade arms up to 30-inch length have been tested successfully. The design can be configured to suit any size of ship window in maritime service today.

Component design and material choice is the culmination of many years' experience in the field and the continuing history of environmental testing by the company.

Designs are available for all sizes of vessels from small private motor or sailing yachts up to the largest tankers, cruise ships, or military vessels. The Wynn Type "C" window wiper can easily be retrofitted to any vessel.

Wynn marine window wipers are available in the U.S. through Marketec, Inc. of Chatham, N.J.
