Significance and Use
3.1 This practice provides the three principal methods of fitting chocks to marine machinery foundations to ensure that the machinery is free of vibration and perfectly aligned after installation.
3.1.1 The three principal methods of installing chocks described herein are as follows:
18.104.22.168 Type A—Epoxy-based resin, nonshrinking Chockfast Orange PR 610 TCF by Philadelphia Resin Corp., or equal, and
22.214.171.124 Type B—Two-piece wedge chocks.
126.96.36.199 Type C—Solid, one-piece fitted chocks.
1.1 This practice covers the acceptable methods of fitting chocks to marine machinery foundations.
1.2 The values stated in SI units shall be regarded as standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address the safety concerns associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
