The tool removes the pipe coating and factory weld seam in preparation for repair, tie-in, and inspection scenarios. It uses scrubbers to effectively remove a variety of coatings including FBE (fusion bonded epoxy) and PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) up to 3/16 in thick. An Oceaneering proprietary milling tool is used to mill the longitudinal factory weld seams.

The tool integrates with all work class ROVs capable of providing serial communications and a 24 V supply to the onboard, 5 station hydraulic valve pack (process solenoid valves with flow control). Oceaneering technicians control the tool via a topside laptop and custom software controls.
