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.
The Result: These cylinders now have the ability to last twice as long as the previous design, resulting in massive savings, increased productivity and reduced downtime. Callcott & Downey have since been successful in re-engineering various other components, offering serious on-going savings.
