MCF-10 (Z-Track)

Light Duty Moored Cable Fairing, Z-Track Closure, Tidal Surge

The MCF-10 Moored Cable Fairing is designed to significantly reduce the vibration, noise, and drag created by water movement across the tether cable of a moored buoy. The fairing allows underwater instrumentation associated with moored platforms to work to their full potential.

The MCF-10 material offers good wear resistance, high tear strength, flexibility, and oil and hydrocarbon resistance, in addition to being impervious to saltwater. The MCF-10 fairings long lengths and flexibility allows for an easy installation and is the answer to many tethered cable problems. Refer to Zippertubing’s installation document Moored & Towed Cable Fairings User Guide.
