MetadataShow full item record
The emergency hull release of ALVIN was redesigned in an effort to reduce shaft bending stress and to eliminate galling of contacting surfaces. new design features quarter-turn cam on unthreaded shaft instead of eight-turn threaded shaft of original device. major components are made of Monel K-500 and phosphor bronze inserts used at points of high contact stress.
