Bespoke Rubber Roller Solution for Subsea Solutions Company
Always striving to offer bespoke solutions to meet specific customer requirements, in whatever industry, we recently worked on a rubber roller covering project for a company in the Offshore industry.
The Company needed a solution for a client who works in the Oil & Gas Industry and were looking for a specific coating for a large offshore pipe, that would need to withstand severe offshore conditions.
We supplied a vulcanized Neoprene rubber coating onto on a 4m length of 24” diameter pipe to Connector Subsea Solutions (CSS). Neoprene is regularly used when resistance to weather conditions is important.
Connector Subsea Solutions (CSS) is a technology leading engineering business with a large a portfolio of products and equipment to provide solutions to the Offshore Oil & Gas industry. They supply novel, reliable, and cost-effective solutions for subsea and deep-water projects in some of the world’s most demanding environments.
The coated pipe was required to prepare a detailed system mock-up for trialling the fitness for purpose of coating removal tools that were to be supplied for the maintenance of submerged vertical pipelines for an Oil & Gas Operator in North Africa.
We were able to supply a representative coating of the appropriate thickness and hardness to match the condition of the offshore pipe. This was to ensure that the test mimicked the conditions expected offshore as much as possible, such that the test was of significant value to CSS and their Operator Client thus minimising operational risk.
