Portsmouth, UK, 5th March 2019: Magma Global, the leader in carbon-fibre composite pipe, today announces it has added Shawcor’s Thermotite® ULTRA™ insulation to its m-pipe® offering. It will be primarily used to improve flow by maintaining the temperature of production fluids. Additionally, the insulation material can be adjusted to add weight or buoyancy to manage stability of the pipe in the water column. The insulated product is currently in qualification for use in jumpers for a project in the North Sea and in the Ocyan CompRiser design.
Magma sought to further improve the thermal insulation properties of m-pipe in order to maintain flow temperature for a number of current projects. Magma identified Shawcor’s Thermotite® ULTRA™ for the required thermal insulation to achieve this. It is a styrene alloy subsea insulation system designed specifically for flow assurance in subsea environments for use in ultra-deep water. The insultation layer allows the pipe to retain the ability to be transported and deployed on standard reels.
