L&C Associates Installs Dehumidification System Aboard S.S. Beaver State

L&C Associates, North Hampton, N.H., recently announced the completion of a dehumidification, sealing and alarm system aboard the S.S. Beaver State. At the direction of MarAd, the T-ACS-10 vessel is being dehumidified to protect it from moisture-induced corrosion.

Most notable to the installation is the use of Protective Sealing System, PSS to seal openings leading to the dehumidified spaces. Protective Sealing System, PSS is a sprayapplied, semi-adhering, flexible, vinyl plastic which prevents moisture from migrating into dehumidified spaces. Since PSS is strippable, the vessel can be reactivated quickly, a key requirement of the lay-up specification.

L&C technicians designed and installed the desiccant dehumidification equipment, and the ducting system which distributes the dehumidified air. Other components of the L&C package included an alarm system and the testing of the d/h and sealing system.
