The IM-Swivel is a multi-purpose mooring swivel that can join chains of the same or dissimilar sizes together, allowing for 360° rotational freedom while under tension.
Connecting directly into studless or common stud link chain, the swivel does not require any kenters or joining shackles. This is not only an economical advantage but also a time saving hook-up benefit.
The assembly of mooring equipment on the back-deck is time critical and the IM-Swivel reduces the number of connections in the system while still providing rotational freedom for assembly, anchor manipulation, wire or chain twist and overall torsional control.
New for 2019, the “IM-Swivel-R5”, a fully Type-Approved grade R5 mooring swivel. It is used to connect 76mm (3”) or 84mm (3.25”) mooring chains together. Fully in accordance with DNVGL-OS-E302 and ABS Mooring Guidelines.
