STR enters the inspection market
Mon, 23 January 2017
UK subsea technology company STR has released its new SeaGamma Flooded Member Detection System at Subsea Expo Exhibition 2017.
Gamma Flooded Member Detection has long been the method of choice for the inspection and monitoring of subsea structural members for the detection of water ingress. The FMD inspection technique can also be applied to locating blockages in pipelines as a result of pigging or silt build up.
With climate change warming our coastal waters, progressive marine growth means traditional methods of NDT inspection can be costly and inefficient. The STR SeaGamma FMD standard system has been designed from the ground up to rapidly survey components up to 2m diameter from an inspection or work class ROV and requires no marine growth removal to deliver results.
Neil Jackson, Sales and Operations Manager at STR said: “SeaGamma FMD system has been designed with substantial input from industry inspection experts and is expected to be the method of choice for the inspection and monitoring of subsea components for the detection of water ingress.”
