Engineers, OEMs Choose ZAGO High-Tech Sealing Solutions For Optimal Subsea Exploration; Environmental Protection

Undersea exploration is expanding rapidly. The information provided by ocean exploration is critical to our understanding of our atmosphere and resources. And, the sophisticated technology that goes into underwater equipment needs to be protected.

The Problem with Ordinary Fasteners

Manufacturers of subsea products have learned that using ordinary fasteners on robotics and sophisticated machinery intended for the ocean depths is hazardous on the environment and tough on equipment.

ZAGO High-Tech Self-Sealing Fasteners a Must

ZAGO’s high-tech self-sealing fasteners protect critical high-value subsea assets from the encroachment of salt-water in the highly pressurized underwater environment. Manufactured from highly corrosion resistant metals, ZAGO’s self-sealing fasteners are engineered with a groove to accommodate a rubber O-ring that seals out the hazards posed by the undersea environment. In addition, ZAGO’s fasteners prevent damage to the ocean ecosystems by preventing the leakage of hazardous fluids and other chemicals into the environment.

Powerful Enough for the Power Grid

ZAGO’s fasteners can be found on the most sophisticated equipment harvesting wave energy for transfer to power grids as well as ocean going solar arrays that power subsea exploration and information gathering. ZAGO’s fasteners allow ocean going and subsea robotics to withstand the harshest conditions while promoting the discovery of new insights and opportunities.
