L&C Associates Installs

Protective Sealing And D/H

Aboard USNS Waccamaw

L&C Associates recently an- nounced the completion of the in- stallation of a dehumidification and sealing system aboard the USNS

Waccamaw, a Mispillion Class jum- boized carrier.

L&C Associates dehumidification systems differ from traditional hard blanking methods of sealing in that a patented flexible sealing system is used. This Protective Sealing Sys- tem, PSS®, has been approved by

MSC for sealing hatches, air in- takes, and ventilation openings leading to dehumidified spaces.

The use of L&C's dehumidifica- tion and sealing system aboard the 35,000-ton MSC vessel greatly re- duces moisture-induced corrosion and, because the seals are strippa- ble, the vessel can be easily reacti- vated.

L&C Associates Inc., specialists in equipment preservation for over 20 years, are industry leaders in the development of turnkey dehumidi- fication and sealing systems for ma- rine applications.
