REACHING BEYOND ITS CLASS - SEATRONICS INTRODUCES VALOR ROV

Seatronics VALOR weighs in at less than 50kg in air yet offers the user flexibility and connectivity that would rarely be featured on an underwater vehicle of this size. VALOR’s intelligent control system enables the user to fully utilize the power available from the SPE75 thrusters. Given the user can accurately control the thrust it is not necessary to reduce the gains to ensure smooth and controlled operation. Power is distributed to the appropriate thruster on the platform via the syntonic control system. Working in a similar way to traction control on a car, the control system considers the vehicles attitude, surrounding environmental conditions and the specific position of the thruster

NO NEED TO JUGGLE SEPARATE FASTENERS WITH NEW COMBI-WASHER FROM HEICO

Using fasteners in tight installation situations, particularly in the field, can be a real headache but the new Combi-Washer from HEICO that uses the proven bolt security technology of the company’s HEICO-LOCK® Wedge Lock Washers, has an innovative design that takes away the pain. When working with a bolted connection fiddling about with separate bolts, washers and nuts adds increased assembly time and cost during production as well as during regular maintenance. One answer has been to produce a SEMS screw that involves captivating a washer onto a screw or bolt in a one piece design but this is usually an expensive and time consuming process that requires specialist manufacture. A traditiona

ALTERNATING CURRENT FIELD MEASUREMENT TESTING

To address the lack of adequate techniques suited for use underwater to characterize fatigue cracks in ferritic steel welds, a group of United Kingdom oil companies approached the University College London in the ‘80s to develop the alternating current field measurement (ACFM®) non-destructive testing technique. ACFM is an electromagnetic technique that enables detecting surface-breaking cracks without removing coatings. It uses a mathematical model to predict the crack’s surface length and depth—key parameters in assessing the severity of the defect and its impact on integrity. How it Works An ACFM probe locally induces a small, uniform current into the surface under test. The current flows
