How old are your umbilical systems? What condition are they in? The answers to these questions are important to the overall health of your CEMS operations. The condition of all of the umbilical system’s elements – from the wiring and tubing bundle to the insulation and heated hose – must be considered when evaluating age.
While manufacturers estimate 15-20 years for the heating cables, that range is highly dependent on many factors. Cold weather, water damage, dirt, and corrosive environments can cause them to degrade more quickly, and if not replaced in time, fail.
Many CEMS users schedule their umbilical replacement for every 12-15 years and keep a spare in dry storage. ESC Spectrum’s Umbilical Inspection and Installation service helps you keep your facility healthy to avoid downtime and failures.
