  • Pneumatic Tray Mount: supports for tubing systems that fasten onto outer tray side walls

This hanger is so adaptable that it can be fastened to any structural surface.

On August 15th 2017, Production Fastening Systems, L.L.C. was awarded US Patent #9,732,884 for their T-SEP™ Assembly (Tube Separation Assembly). The T-SEP is designed to maintain separation between tube delivery systems while preventing corrosion. The T-SEP has been used in projects such as Amarata Hess Stampede, Noble Leviathan, Statoil Peregrino, Chevron Wheatstone, BP Mad Dog II, and Shell Vito to name a few. It has become the standard clamping system for major offshore projects. Production Fastening Systems has received great feedback about the T-SEP as an excellent solution for fastening tubing in a way that greatly reduces the opportunity for corrosion.
