US-based Chukar Waterjet, Inc., a leading manufacturer of ultra-high pressure waterjet technology for the deepwater subsea environment, is exhibiting at OTC Brasil, 29-31 October at Riocentro in Rio de Janeiro.

The company says that it is the only waterjet manufacturer in the world that offers ultra-high pressure (UHP) waterjet equipment capable of operating in the deepwater subsea environment.

Operable at depths up to 3000 meters (10,000 feet), Chukar’s deepwater subsea waterjet system has numerous applications for deepwater emergency response operations, underwater salvage operations, and rapid de-mobilization operations. It can cut steel up to 250 mm (10 inches) thick and quickly blast away concrete weight coatings, corrosion and marine growth at pressures up to 3800 bar (55,000 psi).

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 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, when the company was asked to rapidly manufacture a system to clear a clogged containment system 1500 meters underwater.

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. More information here:
