Shipped Load Adjustment
During a cargo’s long journey from manufacturer to local distributor, it can often shift and move inside their shipping containers. When the load becomes uneven within its container, it can cause problems for the transporter. Paratech air lifting bags are frequently used inside shipping containers to shift loads and restore load balance. Available space can sometimes be small, and difficult to maneuver, so air lifting bags present a good solution to place between loads to shift them back into place.
Maritime Hull and Structure Damage
Paratech DCS is designed to stop the vicious cycle of a hull breach. With incoming water comes increasing depth and with that, higher water pressure; Paratech DCS breaks this feedback loop by applying pressure to the breach, reducing water flow and providing additional structural integrity to the vessel. Where wood damage control shoring systems required large teams of extensively trained personnel to effectively construct these shores in the tight timeframes of a hull breach, Paratech’s higher strength DCS systems require minimal training and can be constructed by a single person exceedingly quickly. Paratech’s DCS system can save your ship and the lives of those on board.
