SAN ANTONIO– Trelleborg says that it will be showcasing its comprehensive suite of subsea flow control solutions at the Subsea Tieback Forum & Exhibition, at 552. The organization will show a number of subsea flow control innovations specifically designed for the subsea industry at the exhibition, including its flowline protection solution, Uraduct. It will also be displaying its bend control solutions such as bend stiffeners and restrictors, as well as advancements in its popular insulation materials.
Taking center stage will be Trelleborg’s Vikotherm II, which is the next generation of its Vikotherm subsea thermal insulation material, which has been installed throughout the subsea oil and gas market for over twenty years. The company says that Vikotherm II offers improved elasticity, as well as enhanced process and manufacturing flexibility.
Utilizing all the benefits of the first generation solution and taking them a step further, Vikotherm II has a k-value of 0.13 W/mK, can be used down to 9,842 ft (3,000 m) deep and utilized on liquid temperatures up to +311°F/ +155°C, as well as external temperatures as low as -31°F/ -35°C.
Trelleborg’s Uraduct is a universal abrasion and impact protection system for fiber optic cables, power cables, umbilicals, flexible flowlines, rigid flowlines, hoses and bundled products.
Doug Marti, Market Development Manager at Trelleborg Offshore, commented: “As our industry continues to push the limits of subsea exploration, the sharing of knowledge and collective experiences becomes even more important for improving quality, safety, and economics across the board. As such, Subsea Tieback provides the ideal opportunity for us to share our industry leading knowledge and engineering expertise, with those than can benefit from it the most in these challenging times.”
