Webtool Launches ROV Resettable Emergency Disconnect Cutter
Hydraulic cutting systems specialist, Webtool, has launched a resettable emergency disconnect cutter for light and medium subsea well intervention.
As an integral part of either a workover tool or dedicated emergency disconnect package, the Webtool guillotine cutter can now be reset subsea by ROV.
Namely, in the event of an emergency disconnection, the Webtool cutter is reset by the ROV releasing the blade and re-charging the hydraulic system. The ROV then places the new hydraulic flying leads (HFL) and electrical flying leads (EFL)/ mixed material bundles in the jaw of the cutter.
“The Webtool cutter has proven to be an effective solution for companies looking for a way of quickly disconnecting mixed media bundles in an emergency,” says Keith Elliot, engineering director, Allspeeds Ltd. “By making the Webtool cutter ROV resettable, it is now even easier for companies to opt for a Webtool cutter for their emergency disconnection needs.”
The Webtool Emergency Disconnect is part of the Webtool range of high performance cutting tools, designed and manufactured exclusively by Allspeeds Ltd.
