Sub Sea Hydraulic Cylinders

Case Study: Subsea Cylinder

Client Profile: International drilling contractor

The Problem: Cylinders failing due to excessive corrosion from salt spray in a seaside environment.

The Goal: Extend service life to ensure downtime & maintenance is kept to a minimum.

The Solution: After a discussion with the client, Callcott & Downey decided to apply a “double chrome” procedure to the rods and a high spec anti-corrosion paint to offer extreme corrosion protection.

The Result: These cylinders now have the ability to last twice as long as the previous design, resulting in massive savings, increased productivity and reduced downtime. Callcott & Downey have since been successful in re-engineering various other components, offering serious on-going savings.
