Operable to 3000 meters, Chukar’s 100hp SUB-JET 3000 work-class ROV-attachable waterjet system produces 7.5 liters per minute of 3900 bar ultra-high pressure water for cutting and blasting.
Ultra-high pressure abrasive water jet is ideal for cutting multiple strings of grouted casing.
UHP waterjets blast away tough coatings including 3LPP.
Underwater Waterjet Systems Increase Safety in Subsea Operations, Provide Operators Access to Larger Projects, Additional Opportunities
Chukar Waterjet, Inc., a leading manufacturer of deepwater subsea ultra-high pressure water jet equipment, is exhibiting at the Rio Oil & Gas Expo and Conference Oct. 24-27 at Riocentro in Rio de Janeiro. Look for Chukar Waterjet in Pavilion 3 Stand 045.
Chukar Waterjet is the only water jet manufacturer in the world that offers ultra-high pressure (UHP) water jet equipment capable of operating in the deepwater subsea environment. Chukar offers both standalone subsea waterjet systems and ROV-attachable waterjet systems.
Operable at depths up to 10,000 feet (3000 meters), Chukar’s subsea waterjet equipment has numerous applications for deepwater emergency response operations, salvage operations, and rapid de-mobilization operations. Chukar systems quickly blast away even the toughest coatings, including three-layer polypropylene (3LPP), and provide a safer, more effective method for cutting multi-string casings for well severance. Waterjetting equipment also may be used to provide turbulence in a stream of methanol for hydrate remediation, an application Chukar developed in emergency response to the Gulf oil spill, when the company was asked to rapidly manufacture a system to clear a clogged containment system 1500 meters underwater.
Chukar’s subsea water jet technology improves the safety and effectiveness of subsea operations, allowing operators to access new types of work and larger projects. Unlike conventional tools, waterjet cuts without heat, reducing the hazard of igniting trapped pockets of gas during cutting. Waterjet system tools cannot bind in the cut, jeopardizing asset integrity. Chukar’s subsea waterjet system can be operated by a diver or ROV, and its remote-controlled operational capabilities make it suitable for projects requiring diverless operations.
