The Seatronics SeaFMD 3000 ROV flooded member detector is used on ROV’s to determine if a subsea void is filled with a liquid or gas (up to the inspection point). The main advantage of the SeaFMD 3000 is to determine whether a leak has occurred within subsea enclosures.
Main components are the subsea electronics pod, probe and ROV T-Bar, topside interface unit and control laptop.
The SeaFMD 3000 has a spring loaded transducer and disposable membranes making it suitable for ROV use. The probe is mounted on a Stainless Steel T-Bar to aid ROV manipulator operation.
A high frequency pulse is sent from the probe and if the member is flooded a reflected pulse from the opposite side of the member will be detected. SeaFMD 3000 software provides the surface operator with visual indication of the test results via an A-Scan display on a laptop. Results can be printed or saved to a log file which includes a record of the Ascan display, Date, Time, Structure, Member, Orientation, Client and Test Engineer.
