Permanent underwater repairs to all seals save time and money

Permanent underwater repairs to all
types of seals save time and money

Hydrex has the technology that enables seal repairs to be done afloat and underwater on all types of seals. By using our patented flexible mobdocks we create a dry underwater working environment around a seal assembly. This allows our diver/technicians to work on the seal assembly in dry circumstances. Prior to this technology the only option was to go into drydock, along with all the attendant loss of time and money.
Damaged stern tube seals will cause a growing amount of oil leaking from the stern tube assembly as the damage deteriorates. If not attended, this will lead to an increasing cost for shipowners, mounting up to thousands of dollars. By replacing the seals on-site when the damage is first discovered Hydrex can keep the down time low while the ship keeps its schedule.
This is just one of the many ways in which Hydrex can apply their know-how in underwater seal repair solutions. These kinds of repair or replacements can be performed on a large variety of seal applications like stern tube seals, tunnel thrusters, azimuth thrusters and others.
