A comprehensive range of proven elastomer technology for onshore, offshore and underwater construction, engineering and maintenance tasks is being introduced to Australia by Pronal’s national distributor Air Springs Supply .
Pronal is the company that made the deep sea flotation tanks used to raise wreckage from the ocean liner Titanic 4000 metres beneath the icy North Atlantic, says Air Springs Supply’s General Manager Mr Simon Agar.
Pronal’s robust high quality fibre-reinforced elastomer products include inflatable pipe stoppers up to 3000mm in diameter, the large ranges of which include many types suitable for maintenance operations, including hyperbaric welding and testing. The stoppers are used to:
- Test pipes for leaks under pressure (joint testing)
- Provide highly portable and re-usable medium and high-pressure stoppers for offshore use
- Provide high-pressure, self-contained stoppers for specialised uses, including power and water utilities
- Isolate pipes for maintenance (inspection stoppers)
- Temporarily seal pipes to avoid runoff of toxic materials (pollution stoppers)
Pronal has also used its civil and military know-how to develop new flexible innovative technical solutions intended for engineering, construction and maintenance of drilling platforms as well as seabed operations.
