Description of Work

UMX was contracted for repair work for the USS Shamals’ fairwaters (shaft couplings). UMX installed one new fairwater and replaced hardware on three existing fairwaters, each fairwater consisting of four sets of 316 stainless steel bolts and four set screws. All hardware was torqued to specifications. One challenge UMX overcame was the process of manually turning the shaft to access hardware. Even though this process was time-consuming, we completed the project on time.

UMX provided the following services for this project:
