ATEX Umbilical Winch Load Monitoring System

July 22, 2014

DLM’s expertise in Load Monitoring for the offshore industry led to the development of a highly successful, umbilical winch monitoring system for a large cable manufacturer.

Designed for use in hazardous areas in the Oil and Gas industry the system consisted of a Shackle Load Cell monitoring the load on an umbilical sheave,
a local display in the hazardous area showing the load value in tonnes, several slave displays for other locations within the hazardous area and also an audible Klaxon.

The systems has been so successful it is now being offered as a standard option on new Winch purchases, resulting in DLM manufacturing several systems per year.
