Product Range Overview

Pelagic MEG/Water blends are typically utilised in the flushing and storage of thermoplastic umbilicals as they contain no corrosion inhibitor package (although they can be used in Duplex systems also).

 

Pelagic Water/MEG fluids contain mixtures of Water/MEG sold in various ratios (such as 90/10, 50/50 etc). There are no other additives although there is an option to add a leak tracer dye.

 

Pelagic SST fluids are typically utilised in the flushing and storage of Steel line umbilicals and manifolds although the SST 10 series can also be used in storage of thermoplastic umbilicals due to its lower pH range.

 

Pelagic SST fluids are MEG/Water based with additional liquid and vapour phase corrosion inhibitors and a leak tracer dye.

 

Pelagic SST Fluids are available in a range of glycol concentrations pending on operational climates.

Thermoplastic Umbilical Storage & Flushing Fluids

Pelagic MEG/Water flushing & storage fluids contain high quality Monoethylene Glycol blended with de-mineralised water.

 

Typical mix ratios available include 90/10, 75/25, 60/40, 50/50, 25/75 and 10/90 MEG/Water and there is also an option to include a leak tracing dye.

 

Pelagic MEG/Water fluids are designed for the flushing and storage of non-metallic hydraulic systems, particularly systems ultimately designed for water glycol hydraulic fluids, and in the flushing of thermoplastic umbilical lines.

 

The De-mineralised water used to produce the blends is high quality and free from mineral and biological contamination and the fluids are filtered to a minimum SAE AS 4059 class 6B-F (in the packaging) via our sophisticated production facilities.

Steel Line Umbilical Storage & Flushing Fluids

Pelagic SST

Fluids are designed to provide corrosion protection in steel line umbilicals and manifolds during storage and commissioning.

 

Pelagic SST

Fluids contain a Vapour Phase Corrosion Inhibitor that provides corrosion protection in ‘air gaps’ and are also fully inhibited to prevent a wide range of bacterial and fungal contamination.

 

Pelagic SST

Umbilical Storage Fluids are supplied pre-mixed to a minimum SAE AS 4059 class 6B-F (in the packaging).

 

Pelagic SST

fluids are available in two glycol variants and more recently, a lower pH version of the product (SST 10 Series) has been introduced with a significantly lower pH, providing superior elastomer compatibility, general handling and environmental properties.

 

Pelagic SST

Fluids have been thoroughly tested in duplex/super duplex lines and are qualified with a range of umbilical manufacturers.
