Upgraded torque tool design 07 February 2022

Based on customer feedback, Depro’s torque tools for subsea operations have been improved with more accurate torque measurements, improved deep water performance and increased in-sea operational time.

Accurate torque measurements are achieved by adding more instrumentation to the tools, as well as an optimised anode placement and a better compensator design. The torque tools provide full control on torque and turns, which allows the operator to set correct torque and turns to avoid overloading the object.

A clear display shows users the exact torque and turn with an accuracy of +/-5%, with the display data easily transferred visually through the ROV camera or electronically through the control system to the operator.

“We are one of the leading companies in torque tool development for subsea use, and our torque tools are designed to provide the highest level of performance,” comments Depro AS. “Depro is an expert in delivering tools and equipment for remote operations. We use high-level competence within the organisation to deliver customised equipment in accordance with project/equipment specifications.”
