Featured Technology

FlexiClean

TECHNOLOGY DESCRIPTION

The FlexiClean family of tools has been used all over the world since it’s launch almost ten years ago. Our patented cleaning tool efficiently clears marine debris without damaging the underlying surface. The family of tools includes electric and hydraulic versions sized for a range of underwater vehicles on for divers. The technology significantly reduces cleaning time and protects surface coatings.

PROBLEM STATEMENT

*Cleaning operations are time consuming.
*Sensitive surfaces (anti-fouling paint, plastics, etc) are susceptible to mechanical damage during cleaning.
*Small underwater vehicles can’t efficiently clean submerged assets.

TECHNOLOGY SOLUTION

The FlexiClean technology reduces cleaning time by as much as 90%.
The ability to clean even soft plastics and advanced surface coatings without damage allows for unparalleled versatility.
A range of power supplies and battery options enables the smaller ROV’s to perform work that previously would require a much larger platform.

BENEFITS

*Cost effective, time saving subsea cleaning.
*Proven technology does not damage sensitive surfaces.
*Designed to work with most underwater vehicles.
