Montville, NJ (PRWEB) February 8, 2008
Marotta Controls is proud to announce that its valves and manifolds have been designed into various systems on the newly commissioned USS Dewey, the newest of the Arleigh Burke class guided missile destroyers.
Marotta's relief valves, manifolds, quick closing valves and solenoid valves serve in various systems throughout the Dewey, from low-pressure pneumatic systems, gas turbine fuel supply, water deluge tank pressurization for the vertical launch system and chilled water systems for electronics cooling, to mission-critical combat systems.
This new destroyer, named in honor of Admiral George Dewey who commanded the Asiatic Station, will serve a vital role in the defense of the American people. Deployed around the globe in support of U.S. interests and commitments, Dewey will be able to conduct a variety of operations, from peacetime presence and crisis management to sea control and power protection. Dewey will be capable of fighting air, surface and subsurface battles simultaneously and contains a myriad of offensive and defensive weapons designed to support maritime defense.
