32mm Smart Band Compact was selected to attach VIV Suppression strakes on Shell Appomattox in the Gulf of Mexico in 2019. Approximately 4100 Bands we re supplied along with the associated Air Tools
Reasons for choosing HCL Smart Band Compact 32mm:
Reliability is vital especially when tools are operated on offshore vessels where repairs and servicing are notoriously difficult. After 25,000 tightening cycles the Smart Band 3000 tool is still performing perfectly with no change in tightening performance. “Quality is never and accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort” – John Ruskin
This makes the Smart Band air tool stand out against alternative Pneumatic Tools for CRA strap such as Super Duplex and Inconel Alloy 625, These tools wear over usage and as such make it impossible to maintain consistent retention over multiple cycles.
