In the oil industry, being able to shed just a few pounds in weight can ultimately save you thousands of pounds in cash. But how do you make something that has the strength of steel but is much lighter? That’s the problem our client had been mulling over for a while before they contacted us.
They were using steel mesh panels on their submersible unit. This provided the strength needed in the demanding underwater conditions in which it was being used, but the weight of the steel was restricting the amount of time it could spend beneath the surface. More time underwater would mean more efficient work and bigger profits.
Our customer contacted us to see if we could offer an alternative to the steel mesh and we set about scouring our international network of industrial textile suppliers until we found a mesh we knew would do the job. We put it through its paces in our in-house testing lab to see just how much the mesh could take before tearing and we were impressed with the results. We manufactured and sent a sample to our client and their testing confirmed that this was the textile to replace the steel. The mesh panels are now in action, built into a sturdy but lightweight structure that is saving time and money for our client.
