Application of Hollow Glass Sphere in Marine Buoyancy Modules
With an optimal balance of high strength and low density, hollow glass sphere have become an industry-standard additive for syntactic foams used in buoyancy modules, buoys or buoyancy blocks for undersea vehicles. When hollow glass sphere are formulated with resin, the resultant syntactic foam has a high strength-to-density ratio to provide maximum net buoyancy for a given depth rating.
Buoyancy modules for drill risers :
Help prevent the steel casing from collapsing under its own weight at depth
Protect the drill string against ocean currents
Distributed Buoyancy Modules (DBMs) :
Maximum lift at the required ocean depth
Buoyancy blocks for Remote Operated Vehicles (ROVs)
High net buoyancy foams rated to any ocean depth :
Modular Subsea Buoys can be used for mooring offshore vessels, compensating the weight of subsea structures and be included in the installation of subsea equipment.
