- Operating Manual
The Flex Joint Cleaning Tool was designed to clamp around steel catenary risers with pipeline diameters ranging from 6 to 24 inches. The tool is operated by a Centurion Subsea Services Technician through the use of a joystick and tooling computer with GUI interface inside the ROV Control Van.
The unique deployment system of the tool allows it to be used on any industry recognised work class ROV. The tool is designed with interchangeable tool trays, which provide the option to work with various inspection cameras, lasers, temperature probes and cleaning tools. The purpose of the tool is to thoroughly clean the underside of the flex joint by removing excessive marine growth from the elastomer, allowing for optimal inspection.
