The user has the choice to run the subsea cutter with the blade guard off completely, with a half guard, and with a jaw with cylinder action. Depending on the job to be done the user has to see which set up best suits them. For instance, if you were to be cutting softline, then the best set up is most likely to use the jaw with complete guard and the soft line cutting blade.
RIPPER CUTTER – MATERIALS ABLE TO CUT
Seadraulics Subsea Ripper Cutter is an adaptable hydraulic super grinder style cutter. This subsea cutter is based around a lightweight aluminium hydraulic high speed, high torque motor. Supplied for rental as a kit, with a range of different blade types, this is the ideal subsea cutting solution. The ROV cutting tool can be supplied with fish tail handle or D multi handle.
In addition, the bearing housing is a custom in-house design, specifically made to handle the large amounts of axial loading caused by rotating large disks and cutting actions causing “chatter” at the shaft, thus providing long life during cutting operations.
SUBSEA CUTTING SOLUTIONS
Custom blades are available for many applications, but the 1″ Arbor suits many standard supply cutting blades, which makes for an ideal underwater cutting solution. The standard, hydraulic operated, super grinder gate allows for our standard range of up to 16″ blades. The gate only opens as far as the amount that blade can handle to cut in one go. Of course, if you do have a special requirement, contact us and we can supply the boss kit needed.
