Decom Engineering have developed safe and effective cutting equipment for the decommissioning and maintenance of oil and gas pipelines and installations. Cleanly cutting through 2 to 24 inch materials, this cold cutting saw can be deployed and operated within the harshest working conditions, including subsea.
The C1-Chopsaw is a versatile, industry approved, single-blade cutter with the ability to clamp and cut a wide range of sizes with the same saw.
A cost effective, snag free alternative to diamond wire saws, the C1 cutting tool can be used on a wide variety of materials including:
Large diameter steel pipe
Chromium alloy drill pipe
Multi-string casings with grout
One of the fastest cutting times on the market (8 to 12 minutes on 16” OD, 12mm WT, L80 grade material).
> A high speed abrasive cut type for mixed materials e.g. umbilicals
> A low speed high torque TCT milling process (no heat or sparks)
One saw can cut a wide array of infrastructure – pipes, drill pipe, conductors, umbilical, chain, wire rope etc.
Our clamping system allows easy movement between cut sizes whilst ensuring the saw is securely fastened to the structure. Our modular design enables a wide range of cut sizes and types.
The cutting mechanism is enclosed within the machine, ensuring that the hazard zone is inaccessible to operators.
The saw makes a clean cut through a range of materials, avoiding the crimping effect of such alternatives as hydraulic shears. The pipe is left in optimum condition for reuse.
