Consultantnet - underwater magnet design

Consultantnet have designed and produced a range of strong electromagnets.  The magnets are used in the oil and marine servies industries and they were designed to operate underwater.  The requirement was to create a firm anchor point on sub-sea structures so that other equipment could then be held in place.  The example in the picture above shows a magnet which has a pull of 7.5 tonnes and is constructed in eight segments which can flex slightly under use so that the magnet fixes firmly to slightly curved structures such as the hull of a ship or part of an oil platform.
