Underwater Suction Cups
These highly specialised Deep Water Suction Pads are manufactured from high quality formed rubber and attach to flat and rough surfaces with gripping forces of 300kgs+. The unit comprises of a base unit to which a replaceable suction pad is attached, and is also available with an optional tap to release vacuum. Suction is achieved by removal of water by venture as standard or by vacuum pump. Designed primarily for securing divers to their underwater workplace or more recently for use holding ROV’s at their workstation. The Deep water suction pads are able to hold steady in strong currents. By design the deeper the suction pad is used, the greater the hold on force. The operator benefits from a greater range of mobility allowing for a more safe and comfortable working environment and efficiency to complete their task.
A more recent development to the Deep Water Suction Pad has the connection to equipment that requires deploying to surfaces at unlimited depths. The Deep Water Suction Pad has been successfully connected to ROV’s demonstrating their extraordinary versatility and providing solutions in this difficult working environment.
