It allows the quick and reliable fastening of threaded studs and drive pins to carry out permanent anchorings and assemblies on metal structures but also on reinforced concrete structures.
Thanks to its very robust design, it can be used up to 150m deep. It can directly be reloaded under water without need for going up to the surface.
Its power is important and easily adjustable. With this, it can cover a wide range of possible applications.
Thanks to its particular neat ergonomic design, its compactness, its lightness and its autonomy,the SUPRAFIX is the ideal tool for any rapid intervention in any underwater environment.
The fasteners are made from high strength steels. The fasteners are available in alloy steel or SupraSteel stainless steel.
The SupraSteel fasteners have specifically been designed for the installation of sacrificial anodes
The operational safety of the SUPRAFIX tool is one of the strong points of its design.
Its technology of safety is patented: International WIPO Patent Application WO/2010/139866.
The SUPRAFIX tool is certified according to the requirements of the “Commission Internationale Permanente” (CIP) under No. 001151 in the category of “powder actuated devices for industrial use”.
The SUPRAFIX tool is also compliant with the safety requirements as defined in the European Directive No. 2006/42/EC.
The EC exam attestation is No. 2223/5471/780/06/11/0013 issued by the “Banc National d’Epreuve de Saint-Etienne”: European notified organism No. 2223.
The SUPRAFIX [SUB150] can be used in many ways, for example for:
Emergency repair of ship hulls,
Installation of sacrificial anodes for underwater cathodic protection,
Installation of underwater cables and conduits,
Strengthening of marine structures in steel or concrete,
Marine salvage and wreck removal,
Main salvage and wreck removal,
Maintenance of dams in deep water (100m).
Important time-saver compared to the traditional methods of welding and chemical sealing,
Very easy implementation,
Lightweight, compact and easy to handle,
Always ready for use,
Reliable and reproducible performances independent from the operator’s skills.
