Aqualink Sub Sea Hydraulic Control Systems
Aqualink water based hydraulic control fluids are biodegradable and environmentally acceptable. They have been formulated to meet the operating and technological demands of existing and future subsea oil and gas production fields.
Blow Out Preventor (BOP) fluids
Stack-Magic concentrate has been specially formulated to provide maximum operational efficiency of B.O.P, Multiplexed and Wellhead Control Hydraulic Systems, while providing protection to the various metals used throughout the system. Stack-Magic is fully biodegradable providing improved environmental protection when discharged to sea.
Compensator / Tensioner Hydraulic Systems
Houghto-Safe water glycol compensator fluids represent the most important development in Motion Compensator and Tensioner Hydraulic Fluids of recent times. They are biodegradable and both fire and explosive resistant, passing the stringent 50:1 compression ignition test, which is required to meet the US Navy specification MIL-H-22072..
Stack-Guard WG is a water glycol storage preservation fluid recommended for the internal protection of wellhead control stacks and other offshore equipment that after periods of storage will be commissioned to operate with water-based fluids.
Tubulars travel and are stored in harsh environments, temperatures vary widely, rain is blown into the crevices between threads and protectors, airborne particles abrade coatings and the atmosphere is usually salt laden, since most pipe yards are on the coast. It is with this in mind Houghton having developed the Rust Veto range.
