Part 2 of Dr. Peter Spain’s article on the development of ADCP technology and the use of syntactic foam buoyancy in subsea moorings.
Designed similarly to “tether balls”, the ROVit® is DeepWater Buoyancy’s answer to the request for multi-purpose, small floats. ROVits® provide buoyancy to make manipulator and ROV tasks easier—especially where lift eyes, pins, and handles are involved.
Each ROVit® is produced from DeepTec® solid syntactic foam and provides approximately 0.03 kg of uplift. Fifteen ROVits® equal approximately 0.45 kg of buoyancy.
The ROVit® is available for 3000 or 4000 meter operating depth. Their rugged design and deep rating make them the most versatile tools in your support van.
Prefer a different shape, size or depth rating for your buoyancy needs?
Please ask. We are a full-service design and manufacturing operation. We are glad to work with you on custom applications, including ROV blocks, skid buoyancy and buoyancy for ROV tools. Learn more >
