Achieve the Resilience Required to Hold a Conductor Firmly in Place and Avoid Further Shock Damage
Traditional repair methods such as solid rubber, wood or plastic chocks are extremely unreliable --breaking, falling out or unable to be properly inserted at all. TEAM’s advanced cast-in-situ choking system technology is unlike any other repair method. It is designed to achieve the resilience required to hold a conductor firmly in place, prevent damage in the guides, and provide sufficient absorption qualities necessary to avoid further shock damage.
Each is fitted on-site to the exact required dimensions, eliminating all difficulties related to fitting. The result of utilizing the advanced cast-in-situ choking system technology is a tailored chock that fits perfectly, stays in place, and meets the wear resistance strength and 'elasticity' requirements needed to provide an ideal, long-lasting solution.
TEAM’s analysis and chocking service identify the extent of the conductor tube or riser fatigue, the degree of chocking required, and exactly where it's needed. Our advanced cast-in-situ choking system technology is then manufactured to these specifications, then cast and installed on-site by our highly-qualified technicians.
