 Products

  • Matrix LGS® for SURF
    Field proven, Matrix LGS® reduces drag and vortex induced vibration (VIV) on cylindrical structures, extending your reach and allowing you to operate in environments where you wouldn't normally....

  • The premise is simple: Matrix LGS® SURF solutions extend your reach and allow you to operate in environments where you wouldn’t normally. Not only that, the system’s passive and low profile, ensures easy installation before and after deployment, significantly reducing life cycle costs.

    • Technology lab tested and field proven
    • Reduces VIV fatigue, drag and top angle 
    • Mitigates riser clashing 
    • Lower drag profile compared to other VIV reduction solutions
    • Robust and benign profile with relative immunity to seabed interactions
    • No moving parts
    • Greater linear coverage due to low profile
    • ROV installable for existing pipelines / risers
    • Integral buoyancy option available
    • Average fixed drag coefficient: 0.6
    • Typical VIV amplitude: <0.25A/D

    Applications: Rigid production risers and caissons; flexible risers and steel catenary risers; subsea pipelines

  • Matrix Distributed Buoyancy Module (DBM) System
    Matrix’s Distributed Buoyancy System is accredited to API 17L by Bureau Veritas. Designed to reduce installation times by 50%, the system supports a range of rigid and flexible risers and umbilicals....

  • Matrix’s Distributed Buoyancy Module System is accredited to API 17L by Bureau Veritas. Designed to reduce installation times by 50%, the system supports a range of fixed and flexible risers and umbilicals. It is comprised of two lightweight buoyancy elements, an internal clamping system (installed horizontally or vertically), and outer securing straps.

    Clamp

    • Quick and easy to install
    • Horizontal or vertical installation.
    • Simple installation tooling
    • It is pre-assembled
    • Short manufacturing lead time
    • Made from high quality rapid injection moulded advanced composite materials
    • Protected under international patent laws.

    Buoyancy Module

    • Lightweight and robust
    • Impact and abrasion resistant surface materials

  • Buoyancy Balls; Cuboids and Tablets
    Economical and simple, Matrix’s Buoyancy Balls and Cuboids are suited for small installation buoyancy needs and come in a range of sizes and uplifts. Matrix’s Buoyancy Tablets are used when greater uplift is required....

  • Economical and simple, Matrix’s Buoyancy Balls and Cuboids are suited for small installation buoyancy needs and come in a range of sizes and uplifts. Matrix’s Buoyancy Tablets are used when greater uplift is required.

    Buoyancy tablets

    Buoyancy tablets are used when uplifts between 500kg and 2,500kg is required at depths of up to 3000msw. Buoyancy tablets are a simple way of providing mix and match solutions for a range of offshore installation and construction tasks.

    Key features

    • 5 different uplifts
    • Range of depth ratings -  500msw to 3,000msw
    • Easy to handle and attach - upper and lower load rated pad eye
    • Through member/ pad eye designed in accordance with DNV offshore standards and delivered with a NATA load test certificate if required
    • Easy to stack and transport - flat sides

    Buoyancy balls and cuboids

    Buoyancy balls are suited for small installation buoyancy needs. A 45mm through-hole allows the buoyancy balls to be threaded onto a large diameter rope or sling. Multiple balls can be strung together to allow greater uplift. The balls have a robust polymer shell which provides protection during transport, handling and operation.

    Buoyancy cuboids are economical structures that provide greater uplift than buoyancy balls.

    Key features

    • Range of uplifts between 100kg and 500kg
    • Depth rated to 3,000msw
    • Easy to handle and attach - upper and lower eye bolt
    • Easy to stack and transport - flat sides
    • Robust GRP skin which reduces buoyancy damage during transport, handling and operation.
