The system can deploy and retrieve pipe at the same operational line load and speed.
Variable speed and tension control in both directions.
Tracks are driven by electric drive assembly to deploy or retrieve the product.
The two track carriages are mounted in the main structural frame. This is connected to the mounting frame with low shear mounts and load cell pins for accurate product load information.
Both tracks open hydraulically to load/unload product and close to grip the product when operational.
Both tracks can also move vertically to allow adjustment of the firing line by 0-200mm.
For Pipe-in-Pipe applications, the tensioner features a simple foundation frame, designed to interface with frame buried into concrete on site for ease of installation and maintenance.
Operation and safety systems can be integrated with the full production line with separate safety stations linked in to provide safe, defined and interlocked production steps.
A HPU is integrated in the tensioner base frame, which drives the squeeze system, track adjustment and support rollers.
Supplied with a dedicated EPU with control desk integrated into a partitioned 20ft container.
Features remote access for 24/7 MDL support with fault diagnostics and troubleshooting.
Adjustable support rollers at exit and entry of tensioner.
Standard and custom track pads can be supplied.
Unit features a compact footprint and is road-transportable.
