Bromination Systems From

Everpure Provide Reliable

At-Sea Water Treatment

Providing passengers at sea a safe, reliable potable water supply is critical. The U.S. Public Health

Service and the National Sanitation

Foundation, the leading organiza- tions concerned with drinking water quality, have approved two methods of water treatment aboard ships: chlorination and bromination.

Everpure, Inc., Westmont, 111., is a technological leader in the devel- opment and manufacturing of bro- mination equipment for use aboard ships. The company is currently supplying the second generation of

September, 1990 bromination feeders for the U.S.

Navy's newest ships, such as the

Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72), Nimitz

Class aircraft carriers, the Coastal

Minehunter MHC-51 Class, and the

Fast Combat Support Ship AOE-6


According to Everpure, bromina- tion equipment can be found aboard the U.S. Navy surface fleet and U.S.

Coast Guard vessels, and on the majority of offshore oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.

Bromine, the company contends, is virtually tasteless and effective over a wide pH range. Also bromine is supplied in easy to change car- tridges, has a two-year shelf life and is not toxic or flammable in storage.

No chemical measurement or physi- cal handling of the product is neces- sary, since bromination equipment features an automatic feeder.

Manufactured of stainless steel, brass and bronze components, bro- mination systems have an average 20-year service life. And although brominators are initially more ex- pensive than other systems, Ever- pure believes that, because of lower maintenance and operating costs, future cost savings outweigh these differences.

When there's noise inside a machine enclosure, there's usually vibration. The practical solution is to line the inside of the enclosure with a combination sound absorption and damping material.

Soundcoat's FOAM


EMBOSSED consists of a thickness of embossed foam bonded to a thin sheet of pre- cured, high efficiency damping compound. In this configuration,


EMBOSSED has proved to be an effective solution to the problems of noise and vibration. It's available with

Soundcoat's own pressure sensitive adhesive backing and can be cut to fit any enclosure.

Foam Damping Sheet from Soundcoat. It brings noise and vibration problems to a full stop.
