Simplified Gas Diversion Improves Safety
GE diverters are known for significant safety enhancement and rig protection. The FS™ 21” 500-psi (Flow Safe) marine riser diverter is designed to achieve these objectives for all types of floating offshore rating rigs. FS can be installed through 49½” or 60½” rotary tables. Its design avoids the functional complexities that can increase the chance for human error and equipment breakdown. The ability to close on an open hole eliminates a serious safety gap that can be caused by cartridge inserts and their installation. The patented integral valve design eliminates the need for equipment such as vent valves and interconnecting circuitry—so there is no sequencing. A solitary hydraulic signal simultaneously moves the piston up and closes the annular packing unit, opening the vent line, stopping upward flow, shutting off the flowline to the shaker and shutting off the fill-up line.
