Produce two Devlon T-100 casting 76” OD. Each casting weighted approximately 1 ton. Castings were used to produce the Overboard power and Alleviator sheaves. All finished Devlon sheaves weigh approximately 1/7th the weight of steel sheaves.
Supplied and completed testing of sheaves for heave compensation. The Pressurized Rescue Module System (PRMS) must be capable of operation in class four sea state. (moderate 2-4 meters)
Detailed review of all applications for loading, as safety factors were critical. Bushings had to be evaluated for running clearances and press fits. Applications were designed for a harsh sea environment where temperature, humidity and UV were key factors.
The SRS & LARS was delivered in 2007 and the Undersea Rescue Command (URC) and NAVSEA continues to operate the system that is instrumental to the safety of submariners.
