Many people, in shipyards and the Navy alike, consider the ship's Halon fire-control system to be among the most critical piping systems on any vessel. Important because in case of a ship fire, the survivability of everything onboard will ultimately depend on how well the CO canisters actuate and the fire control system operates.
Jacksonville Shipyards, Jacksonville, Fla., like most shipyards, is faced with the task of providing reliable products quicker and at a reduced cost to the government and the taxpayer. Accordingly, the yard's pipe foreman, George Leonard, took a closer look at Pyplok swage marine fittings manufactured by Deutsch Metal Components in Los Angeles, Calif. Now, he says, he "swears by 'em." Mr. Leonard and his group of pipe fitters have installed Pyplok swage marine fittings on the new Aegis Class cruiser USS Philippine Sea, as well the USS Doyle, USS Gallery, USS Estocin, USS Flatley.
The Halon system is a 3,000-psig rated system, each installation of which Mr. Leonard and his group pressure tests from two to four hours at operating pressure. As far as installation costs, Jacksonville Shipyards benefits from fewer requirements with Pyplok.
The Deutsch Pyplok pipe fitting system has demonstrated an unparalleled reliability record with zero rework. According to Mr Leonard, zero rework means increased productivity and profitability at Jacksonville Shipyards.
Jacksonville Shipyards is a major ship repair yard on the East Coast, owned by Fruehauf Trailer, which was acquired in 1989 by Terex Corporation. It is comprised of their downtown yard in Jacksonville, Fla., along with their Mayport division and Bellinger division.
The commitment to use the relatively " new" Deutsch Pyplok pipe fitting system, which has actually been in use for over 10 years, underscores Terex Corporation's philosophy to integrate modern technology for enhanced ship repair production.
Mr. Leonard's use of the Deutsch Pyplok system, through substantially reduced man-hour costs, rework cost and other costs (i.e., flushing, gas-freeing and fire-watch) has shown it to meet Terex's commitment to increased quality and productivity.
