Monitoring System Installed
On MSC Ship By L&C
L&C Associates, dehumidifica- tion specialists, recently announced the completion of the installation of an innovative dehumidification, sealing, and monitoring system for the prepositioned, general cargo ship M/V Advantage, chartered to the Military Sealift Command (MSC) to carry cargo.
The system, designed and in- stalled by L&C to meet MSC speci- fications, consists of monitoring and dehumidification systems which service each of the vessel's four holds.
A major component of the system is a Cargo Environment Monitoring
System (CEM), which includes air flow sensors, and humidity sensors.
The area monitored by the CEM exceeds 1.2 million cubic feet.
Other features of the CEM in- clude a computerized retrieval and recording system, required by MSC specs, designed by L&C. This unit compiles and computes functions and transmits data to a logger lo- cated in the deck office. Data can be downloaded via PC to floppy disks or nonvolatile EEPROM storage cartridges.
The computer and monitoring systems have been tested extensive- ly for reliability in the marine envi- ronment and have been designed to retain all data despite a loss of pow- er to the ship.
In order to maintain an accept- able environment within the holds, dehumidified air is ducted into the cargo areas and is controlled by humidistats. L&C, using their pat- ented Protective Sealing System, sealed the hatch covers and the hold ventilation system. Sealing the con- trol area is the only way to maintain the integrity of the dehumidified spaces, and L&C's Protective Seal- ing System (PSS) has proven to be an effective and economical method of protection from moisture dam- age.
L&C Associates, North Hampton,
N.H., is an industry leader in the design and installation of dehumid- ifications, sealing and monitoring systems for the marine market.
