Solenoid and actuator solutions for the offshore industry


The offshore environment offers some interesting engineering challenges arising chiefly from the environmental conditions that exist on offshore structures such as oil rigs. Magnet Schultz Ltd is highly experienced in meeting these challenges and providing solenoid-based product solutions and actuator assemblies for the hostile environments where the equipment produced by our customers is required to operate.

Typical offshore applications are found in:

  • Oil rig platforms, where explosible conditions require the use of ATEX devices for all kinds of access control equipment, special actuators and facilities
  • On the seabed, where high pressures and corrosive conditions present special design challenges for pipeline valves
  • The depths of the earth’s crust where logging equipment has to function in confined spaces and very high ambient temperatures
Applications for the most extreme conditions

Offshore equipment has to be highly reliable because failure will at best require expensive servicing, or at worst, place lives at risk. Magnet Schultz has the design know-how, years of industry experience, extensive testing facilities and manufacturing processes needed to guarantee that every offshore product we deliver performs at the highest level, year after year.

We are delighted to be able to name Conoco Phillips, Halliburton and Schlumberger amongst our offshore clients.
