Lincoln Sliding Watertight Door is a Modular constructed assembly.
The door, frame, hydraulic cylinders and local actuating equipment
is one assembly. The local actuating equipment is mounted on a plate
that can be mounted to the doorframe or you may choose to install
the plate unattached from the frame. The door, frame, cylinders
and local actuation center is adjusted, pre-piped, pre-wired and
tested at our shop prior to shipping.
remote components are the Modular Hand Pump Station, (installed
above the bulkhead deck) and the Central Control Station (located
on the Bridge). These components are supplied separately.
Modular Style System reduces installation time in half and trouble
shooting is usually nonexistent. When the assembly arrives at the
yard the installation consists of welding the assembly to the bulkhead,
running two hydraulic tube runs from the remote hand pump station
and one electric cable run to the Central Control Station.
A service cable from the emergency switchboard will be required.
has been our experience that once a yard has used the Modular Systems,
they continue to use them.
