We make sealing components for Subsea Well Intervention Equipment such as the Shear seals, Packers, Ram Seals, and Grip seals. We work with your dimensions and specifications to make the items you need for your Subsea Equipment. We also manufacture seals for Chokes, Manifolds, and Subsea Wellheads. We can design for low temperatures of -75F to high temperatures of 450F, or even fire safe. We are a solution-based manufacturer so we navigate with our customers to the next big thing, like HPHT. We manufacture solutions like Telescopic Joint Packers that go on Riser systems as well as Urethane Riser Clamps and Flow Line Seals. Our Urethane is a great material for subsea because it has great wear resistance and can handle ocean water.

Open-pit mining is done by drilling through solid rock formations, which create high-frequency vibrations. These vibrations can damage the drill mast and drive motor. While there was some vertical cushioning employed, it was not substantial. Utex increased the size of the dampener to provide an increased vertical cushion as well as developing radial stress relief. By cushioning radially, the Utex King Cobra Rotary Shock Sub Series can significantly reduce the accelerations induced at the drill head. It is compact and durable and improves the penetration rate.
