Seanic Builds Second Flex Joint Cleaning Tool

Houston, Texas- Seanic announced, due to increased customer inquiries, they are building a second Flex Joint Cleaning tool.

The first Flex Joint Cleaning Tool was designed and built specifically for a Major Oil Company in 2007. Since that time Seanic has been responsible for storing, maintaining and operating that tool in the field on their behalf. The Flex Joint Cleaning Tool was originally designed to effectively remove excessive marine growth where the ball and socket meet allowing for an optimal inspection of the elastomer material. Once cleaned, the high definition still photography and video collected will allow for 3D modeling if any anomalies are found. The new tool can accommodate pipeline diameters ranging from 6" to 24" and given the unique deployment system, the tool can be used with any of the standard work-class ROV's.

Tom Ayars, President of Seanic said, "Over the last few years operators have shown strong interest in being able to perform detailed inspections of their Flex Joints once they heard about the first tool. Since the first tool was owned by a specific operator we were not able to share the actual hardware. Adding this second tool to our extensive rental fleet this spring will allow other operators the chance to take advantage of this unique concept in their annual IMR programs."
