Good cod! Norma secures undersea contract

NORMA Group has won a contract to equip the electricity and fibre optic connections to an offshore fish farm system in the Norwegian North Sea, using its ABA Original SMO hose clamps 

NORMA says that the clamps will be used 40km  offshore adjacent to Tromsø and will form a key element of the subsea cable bend restrictor system. The clamps will be used to secure cable kink protection seals.

Long-time NORMA Group customer TESS, a Norwegian operator covering the oil and fishing industries, uses ABA Original SMO clamps for subsea cable bend restrictors. Where the electric and fibre optic cables bend, the clamps secure the seal to prevent potential cable kinks and are designed to last for 20 years. 

NORMA says that its ABA Original SMO clamps are made from SMO 254 material, an austenitic stainless steel that doesn’t rust and provides maximum resistance to pitting, crevice corrosion and various types of stress corrosion making them suitable for use in challenging environment such as sea water plants and facilities in the chemical and food processing industries.

A view on liquid vs compression gaskets
We all know that for a gasket to do its job effectively, it is essential that the seal it creates remains intact over a long period of time. The gasket must also be resistant to fluids and/or gases and be able to withstand the operating temperatures and pressures to which it is subjected. For many applications, these qualities are best achieved with adhesive gasketing products in preference to pre-cut, compression gaskets  says Henkel Loctite.
