Guidepost Release Tool MK2

Guidepost Release Tool MK2

Subsea Tooling
The TMT Guidepost Release Tool MK2 provides the means for removing guidepost extensions. This could be at the end of the field life or as part of a standard operational procedure during installation. An internal pressure reducing valve is set at 1500psi (100bar) to limit the load that is applied to the guidepost latch. Springs will automatically retract the cylinders if hydraulic power is lost, preventing the tool from becoming stuck onto the guidepost.
The tool is typically operated using an ROV manipulator, however it can also be mounted onto the ROV for projects that require an extended use of the tool.
TMT can customise the tool to suit your requirements.
