A - Tow Pin/Stern Rollers
Smith Berger Tow Pin/Stern Rollers are custom designed for each vessel to allow for easier and faster installations. Available configurations range from 2 to 4 having one or two Hold Down Hooks. The stern rollers (single or split) are integrally mounted within the tow pin frame. The Tow Pins are raised and lowered using marine grade hydraulic cylinders powered by a dedicated hydraulic power unit which is remotely controlled from the wheelhouse.
E - Fairleads and Deck Sheaves
Smith Berger Fairleads and Deck Sheaves are used for mooring all types of vessels. Standard products are available for 3/4" to 3" wire and chain, larger sizes are available upon request. The sheaves and swivelheads are fitted with grease lubricated tapered roller bearings and the wire rope grooves are hardened to reduce wear. Our conservative designs have proven to be the reliable choice for over 75 years.Contact Smith Berger for your next mooring project!
B - Shark Jaws
Smith Berger Shark Jaws provide for safer on-deck chain and wire rope handling conditions. All operations are remotely controlled from a control panel located in the pilot house and/or locally. Controls take advantage of PLC based technology allowing for easier installation with less electrical wiring. A dedicated hydraulic power unit is provided with each unit.Smith Berger Shark Jaws feature a QUICK RELEASE system allowing for immediate release of the chain or wire with the simple push of a button – causing both jaws and the wire lifter to retract simultaneously. Using energy stored in hydraulic accumulators, the jaws can be released at the rated loads even when there is no power on the vessel.
