Technip Umbilical to Use Mantracourt’s Wireless Strain Measurement Technology

A developer of strain gauge measurement technology based in the South-West of England, Mantracourt has announced that Technip Umbilical Systems has chosen Mantracourt’s wireless telemetry strain acquisition technology for the testing of offshore systems.

Umbilical Systems manufactures umbilical systems for deployment in offshore applications. The umbilical systems link a subsea production unit and a remote control unit, which provides communication, power and chemical services. Some of its applications include subsea processing and pumping, chemical injection, production control, underground gas storage and gas lift.

Technip will utilize the T24 wireless technology to conduct fatigue tests on steel tubes and monitor strain. This testing of umbilical structures and an accurate fatigue data is essential as the tubes experience dynamic stress during its service life, thus affecting its performance and lifespan.

A test technician at Technip, Tom Crawford stated that the sleep and wake feature of the T24 reduces the dependency on personal intervention while at the same time increases battery life. Crawford also added that the compact size of the device and the technical support offered by Mantracourt helps in a successful completion of the task.

The features of Mantracourt’s T24-ACMm include a miniature IP54 enclosure measuring 20 x 35 x 60mm housing, a strain gauge acquisition device, an internal antenna providing a range of 100 m, options for current / voltage input, an optional battery pack along with 2 x AAA cells to provide 3 V DC power along with the T24 toolkit software that logs information received in a .csv file format.

Developed for Mantracourt’s telemetry acquisition modules, viz., the T24-IA( 0-20mA current acquisition), T24-SA (strain acquisition) and T24-VA (0-10V voltage acquisition), the T24-ACMm can be easily connected to various sensors.
