Solid buoyancy material technology combines the low-density and high-strength characteristics of materials organically, showing unparalleled advantages in the application of marine technology. Solid buoyancy material is a new type of special marine engineering material following traditional cork, buoyancy tube, synthetic rubber, synthetic foam, buoyancy ball, glass ball, etc. Due to its low density, high compressive strength, low water absorption in deep sea operations And stable, good weather resistance, no pollution to the environment and other characteristics, the material also has a remarkable feature is the machinability and performance homogeneity, can be arbitrarily shaped, according to the complex size of the submersible, through sawing, planing, car , Grinding, sticking and other mechanical processing methods, processed into the required shape, curved surface, etc. according to the requirements, and the general foam material processing mold forming and slicing, greatly saving costs, and on-site grinding, installation and assembly, greatly improved efficiency and solved Generally, the foam material can only be formed at one time, and cannot be reprocessed.
In view of the solid buoyancy material's light pressure resistance and processability, it has now replaced the traditional buoyancy material and is widely used in various underwater robots, deep submersibles, submersible systems, diving bells, underwater Mining machines, offshore oil exploration and development risers, deep-water pipeline deployment buoys, floating cables, floating umbilical cable buoys, mooring buoys, acoustic Doppler velocity profiler (ADCP) platforms, and many other fields, to meet the needs of deep sea exploration and exploration, oil mining, deep sea mining, etc., has a very broad application prospects. The main application areas are introduced below.
