CASE STUDY 4: Subsea Cylinders

Client Profile: International Drilling Contractor

The Problem:Cylinders failing due to excessived corrosion from salt spray in a seaside environment.

The Goal: Extend Service Life to ensure downtime & maintenance is kept to a minimum.

The Solution: After a discussion with the client, Callcott & Downey decided to apply a "Double Chrome" procedure to the rods and a high spec anti corrosion paint to offer extreme corrosion protection.
