Dutch technology company Seatools announced today the introduction of a new subsea hydraulic compensator range: the Advanced series.
The new compensator range is based on the preceding Hyco range and delivers serious improvements in robustness, durability, and standardization, reported Seatools in the release.
According to the company, the new range, meant for heavy-duty subsea hydraulic systems – such as subsea vehicles (e.g. ROVs and trenchers) and dredging systems (suction tube SHPU compensation) – features a strongly improved mechanical design.
Seatools continued by saying that the Advanced compensator range, which complements the basic, heavy-duty, and ultralong lifetime compensator ranges, underwent extensive durability tests under a variety of conditions, such as extreme temperatures ranging from -20°C to 70°C.
Moreover, subsea compensators from the Advanced series have recently been applied in various custom-made ROV projects and have reached TRL level 9.
