Essential Applications: Subsea Piggy Back Blocks

June 18.2020 | Essential Applications

When Deploying Subsea Cable and Pipeline for Subsea Oil and Gas, BAND-FAST Bands are Used to Secure the Cable onto the Pipeline with Polyurethane Blocks

Stainless Steel bands are used to secure the blocks onto a pipeline during installation and the blocks then allow secondary lines to be laid at the same time while maintaining position. If the bands failed this would cause complex repairs and potential costly damage to the pipeline. BAND-FAST® bands are the ideal solution: ready to use, pre-cut and pre-assembled with a buckle. Subsea companies depend on the consistency and strength of BAND-IT products for their harsh duty lifespan in salt water environments.
