Cygnus FMD system – Available for rental/hire from Ashtead Technology.
With over three decades of designing ultrasonic equipment for the offshore and underwater environment, Cygnus fully understands the requirements of the subsea inspection industry.
This entirely new Flooded Member Detector (FMD) combines intelligent, advanced software and electronics with a truly simple to use interface. The FMD system comprises of three fundamental parts; the probe and probe handler, the subsea electronics unit and the reporting software. The Cygnus FMD System is owner operated and extremely easy to learn and understand. Due to its simplicity of use, the FMD system can be used by a range of operators, with varying experience, without the need for external contractors.
The Cygnus FMD has an innovative probe handling solution which self aligns, ensuring correct contact with the member, even when approached from an angle. The system also has a contact sensor which will not allow a test to be taken unless the probe is correctly aligned. The system returns a simple DRY / FLOODED result to the reporting software with results logged at the surface.
