Single Axis Chain Stopper Fact Sheet

CHALLENGE IMPROVE DELIVER

Single Axis Chain Stopper

A single axis chain stopper is a device for holding chain at deck level.

The chain is held on a clacker which rests on the table and the table and clacker may rotate around trunnion bearings to give rotation around the horizontal allowing the chain to change its angle of inclination as the ship moves.

APPLICATIONS


Single axis chain stoppers are used where met ocean conditions do not require dual axis. Typically mounted on the chain table of external turrets.

BENEFITS


  • Smaller and more compactly hence lighter and takes up less room than existing designs
  • High fatigue resistant steel construction for long life
  • Optimised interaction between clacker and chain to avoid jamming
  • Maintenance free run dry or wet low friction bearings

FEATURES


  • All forged construction
  • Duplex/no metallic bearing arrangement
  • Tension monitoring may be integrated in design

STORY


External turret mooring systems suffer from lack of space on the chain table and existing stopper designs have also suffered from chain jamming. To compound the problems the classification societies are now insisting on far greater qualification of material suppliers and analysis of mooring system components.

SPECIFICATION


Single axis chain stoppers are designed and built in accordance with customer requirements and for any size required and in accordance with classification society rules.
