Testing Subsea Air Bags with SmartLoad® Load Monitoring Technology

The challenge

The Result

Key outcomes

IMCA asked Unique Seaflex to test the load on the inverter line of an air lift bag while inverting. 

SmartLoad® was used to acquire and transmit data at 200 Hz, providing suitable data for dynamic measurement. 

The data will be used to advise air lift bag users on which breaking strain of line to use. 

A quote from the client

“Unique Seaflex approached Scotload who quickly understood the nature of the problem and within a week supplied a 17t subsea load shackle with a 10m cable and SmartLoad® transmitter. The load shackle transmitted the loads back to a laptop computer with SmartLoad® software installed at a rate of 200Hz which provided superb data in both graphic and numerical output.”

“Unique Seaflex and IMCA were extremely pleased with the performance, accuracy and reliability of the SmartLoad® equipment and will no doubt be using it again in all subsequent trials.”
