Improved Retractable Mooring Fixture (IRMF)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Hy-Tek Manufacturing Co. Inc. (HMC) proposes a superior renovation solution for the DDG-51 class ships retractable mooring fixtures; namely bitt and chock assemblies. There are two major areas where technology advancements can be made that not only provide reliable bitts and chocks for use onboard U.S. Navy ships, but also have implications for other military and commercial applications. The first is the application of high lubricity, lubricant free, composite bearing surfaces on cylindrical and linear bearing surfaces; the second involves the use of advanced sealing technology to provide operational integrity even under highly dynamic load force fluctuations and extreme environmental conditions.
