SAFE LOAD RELEASE SYSTEM
WE MAKE THEM
How Does Our Safe Load Release System Work?
Patterson’s cam action load release system is the safest way to gradually release line tension on all of your tank barge winches. By allowing you to release the load holding dog while the brake remains engaged, the operator can feather the load out, safely and gently releasing line tension and avoiding uncontrolled spooling that leads to bird-nesting and fouling of the wire.
