The INFINITY GAUNTLET is a Lloyd's Register Technically Qualified, World-wide patent protected safety device composed of advanced para-aramid materials (such as KevlarTM or TwaronTM) which creates a shield for your degraded stored-energy assets. Designed to retain the spring force of a degraded actuator which is at risk of catastrophic failure while in service, non-operational or decommissioned, protecting people and equipment from not only an un-contained spring failure, but also the shrapnel that can result from release of the stored energy.

The INFINITY GAUNTLET can be used for protecting the surrounding equipment and personnel whilst working on the actuator, decommissioning the actuator, and transporting the degraded actuator to the beach for recycling/re-use by Infinity.

Pro/con

Ensures the safety of plant and personnel from un-contained failures of stored energy actuators due to degradation, whether through corrosion or other factors
Removing a significant Major Accident Hazard
Is light-weight and easily transportable
Can be installed by core crew with a small amount of training
Does not degrade, corrode or wear in any way
Unlike metal clamps does not require additional inspection
Requires modification if there is exposed pipework

Specification

Customer Focus Each Gauntlet is designed to your particular actuator and its environment. No two installations are the same. Very little dimensional and process information is required and a site survey is optional.
Cost Keeping your costs to a minimum allowing you to implement the Gauntlet solution at low cost.
Scalability There is no limit to the scalability of the Gauntlet.
Certifications / licences Certified by Lloyd's Register under a rigorous development and testing programme.
Material The Gauntlet uses para-aramid "bullet proof" Kevlar* / Twaron* woven fibre layers to protect personnel and assets from uncontained shrapnel if the actuator fails.
Patents It is the ONLY certified safety device approved for use on degraded actuators and is the only non-metallic solution on the market.
Protection Gauntlets do not degrade over time, nor do they degrade when exposed to salt spray, moisture, UV light, or heat up to 400ºC. They also protect the actuator from sun, sand, and wind.

About Infinity Oilfield Services Limited

Infinity Oilfield Services Limited has been serving the Oil&Gas and Energy sectors since 2002. We started out in gas turbine services and expanded in 2011 into offshore maintenance services in drilling and topsides equipment. While providing inspection services on Total and Shell platforms, we saw a need for the Infinity Gauntlet, an approved, tested, patented safety device for degraded stored-energy actuators. We developed the Gauntlet in conjunction with the OGTC, Scottish-Enterprise, Lloyd's Register and support from our clients Total and Shell.
