Pipeline coating removal tools

Pipeline coating removal tool with Claxton branding

Acteon offer a range of pipeline coating removal (PCR) systems powered by high pressure (HP) and ultra-high pressure (UHP) water, designed to remove concrete and other protective coatings from pipelines.

Effectively remove concrete and other protective coating from pipelines.

The system is capable of both linear and circumferential passes with only diver or ROV intervention necessary to cut the re-enforced bars exposed by the coating removal process.

PCR technology is capable of removing coatings on pipelines ranging from 100 – 1200mm (4-48in) outside diameter, with systems designed to remove a 360˚ section of coating up to 1m in length. This is achieved by manipulating the jetting carriage using linear and circumferential movements, hydraulically controlled with fly-by-wire technology.

The PCR systems are fitted with rotating multi-jet heads to remove various coating types at the optimum rate. The electro-hydraulic supply and control can be operated from the surface or via the ROV subsea. All monitoring and adjustments are controlled via our in-house designed software.
