This objective of this project is to reduce the cost of piping penetrations through airtight and watertight bulkheads in US Navy ships by mechanically attaching resilient transit seals in lieu of shop welding pipes to sleeves, then, ship-welding sleeves to bulkheads.
ROXTEC pipe transits have been used in commercial marine applications, but they need to be qualified for US Navy applications prior to implementation. A similar product is being used in electrical cable sealing multi-cable transit on US Navy combatants.
