HOUSTON --Hannon Hydraulics has announced the availability of its new REMCO 105K riser tensioner upgrade kit which allows users to upgrade existing Rucker style 80 kip riser tensioners to 105 kip capacity.
The upgrade kit maintains the same operating design with a double acting cylinder where the rod end of the cylinder is used to limit the maximum velocity of the rod. This protects the tensioner assembly in case of wire rope failure.
The REMCO 105K upgrade is shipped as a fully assembled and tested module ready for installation on the existing 80K blind end sheave housing and foundation. The rod end sheave housing, sheaves and wire rope size from the existing 80K tensioner are also retained for use with the new 105K module.
Operating system pressure is unchanged. New load gauges are supplied for the control panels to read the upgrade capacity.
