A RoRo lashing chain tensioner is a tool used to apply tension to RoRo lashing chains during cargo securing operations on Roll-on/Roll-off (RoRo) vessels. These tensioners are designed to ensure that the lashing chains are tightened to the correct tension, providing a secure and safe hold for the cargo during transportation.
RoRo lashing chain tensioners are typically manual or hydraulic devices that work by applying force to the lashing chains, tightening them around the cargo and securing it in place. The tensioner is connected to the lashing chain and operated by hand or using a hydraulic pump, depending on the type of tensioner. The operator can adjust the tension level by adjusting the pressure applied by the tensioner.
The RoRo lashing chain tensioner is an essential component of the cargo securing process on RoRo vessels, helping to prevent the cargo from shifting or moving during transportation. They are often used in conjunction with other cargo securing equipment such as lashing points, chains, and hooks, to provide a comprehensive cargo securing solution.
RoRo lashing chain tensioners are available in a variety of sizes and configurations to accommodate different types of cargo and lashing chains. They are typically made of durable materials such as steel or aluminum, to withstand the rigors of marine environments, and are designed to be easy to use and maintain.
