Decom Engineering (Decom) has developed its largest Chopsaw in response to client demand for larger sized subsea pipe-cutting capability. The C1-46 cuts tubulars and other materials up to 46 inches, and its innovative design is able to cut a wide range of materials, including inconel alloys, duplex and concrete.

It can be operated in water depths of up to 2,000 meters and is currently deployed on its first project on behalf of a global energy company on a U.K. North Sea workscope, which involves cutting large surface laid pipelines (36-inch) with 57-mm concrete coating, along with other large pipelines. With the ability to cut in any orientation, the C1-46 is capable of multiple cuts per blade (20-100), resulting in large cost savings and increased efficiency.

Blade changes are efficient, safe and the Chopsaw can be supplied set up in a number of configurations and settings to suit project requirements. 


Endress+Hauser launched FieldGate SWG50, a new WirelessHART gateway primed for secure communication from your field devices. FieldGate SWG50 is a compact and cost-effective ready for Netilion integration while providing an easy-to-use solution for multiple standard monitoring applications across various industries.

Netilion is a cloud-based IIoT ecosystem designed for industrial processes, connecting the physical and digital worlds to send information from the field straight to a phone, tablet or another device.

The WirelessHART gateway FieldGate SWG50 enables users to monitor measurements and health statuses using WirelessHART connectivity. The device allows for network migration, color-coded device listing, 4-by-RJ-45. 


Trelleborg Sealing Solutions launches the H2Pro range of sealing materials for every application of the hydrogen value chain, including a new ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber for high-pressure environments across a wide range of temperatures, and a unique thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) for very low temperatures.

Designed to accelerate innovation for sustainable technology, H2Pro has solutions for the challenges of hydrogen production, transport and storage, and end-use.

Proven to withstand challenging application environments, the materials are suitable for high pressures, low temperatures, and resist permeation, making them better able to withstand rapid gas decompression, while also demonstrating excellent wear and extrusion properties.

The range includes two new materials specially engineered for hydrogen applications. H2Pro EBT25 is a new EPDM for high-pressure environments across a wide range of temperatures, and Zurcon H2Pro ZLT is a TPU for very low temperatures. 

Esco Tool  

Esco Tool offers a portable, inner-diameter clamping pipe beveller with a variable-speed electric motor for use on-site. The Prepzilla Millhog Clamping End Prep Tool features an electric motor with increased power and variable speeds from 9 to 31 rpm for continuous use and faster beveling.

Equipped with a three-blade holder that can bevel any angle, face and bore simultaneously, the tool can produce precision end preps on hard stainless steels and highly alloyed pipe. It only requires one mandrel and eight sets of clamps for its entire range.

The tool is designed for pipe ranging from a 1.575-inch inner diameter (ID) to an 8.62-inch outer-diameter (OD). It has motor specifications of 230 V, 3.08 hp (2,300 W) and 50 to 60 Hz, and it has dual-opposed tapered roller bearings to support the motor.  


Sensirion offered its next-generation miniature CO2 sensor series, the SCD4x. The device is built on the photo-acoustic sensing principle and the patented PASens and CMOSens Technology enables the small sensor size to combine with high performance.

The integrated humidity and temperature sensor enable on-chip signal compensation and additional RH and T outputs. Also, the large supply voltage range (2.4 V-5.5 V), and adjustable power consumption make the SCD4x increases savings.

The kit contains a four-pin jumper wire cable that enables fast prototyping, through integration into existing platforms like Arduino and Raspberry Pi. 


Fecon introduced the 135VRT, which has an improved loader arm design with enhanced attachment visibility. The 135VRT easily mulches material to 8 inches in diameter. This new model features 4,150 ROC with integrated counterweight or hydraulic winch kit for improved balance with Fecon Bull Hog Mulchers.

A 52-gallon fuel tank allows nearly double the run time between fill-ups. Full-coverage fuel tank guarding safeguards against damage while working, and improved sealing prevents debris ingestion.

Each 135VRT comes with a VM602SS Bull Hog Forestry Mulcher equipped with bite limiting rotor for a finer output, while maintaining rotor RPMs.
