Aqua-Tech Solutions proudly carries hydraulic Diamond Wire Saws (DWS), Deepwater Diamond Wire Saws (DWDWSs) and Deployment Baskets manufactured by Alpha Subsea (a division of Aqua-Tech). Together, Alpha Subsea and Aqua-Tech Solutions, together, are industry-leading diamond wire saw suppliers offering the subsea cutting tools that and underwater cutting equipment that puts our customers ahead of the competition.
These best-in-class tools are engineered to quickly cut underwater pipe, casings and structure and are ideal for cutting through different materials “sandwiched” together (such as grout and steel on multi-string casings). Our diamond wire saw cutting machines bring efficient cutting action, enhanced operator safety and greatly extended wire life to all of the following operations:
- Offshore Emergency Response
- Deepwater Cutting and Severing
- Platform Decommissioning, Destructive Pipeline Decommissioning and other Offshore Decommissioning
- Pipeline Repair and Maintenance
We carry five diamond wire saw models, from 4-to-84 inches O.D. (DN100-DN2100). Custom sizes are also available. You also have options for diver control, topside remote control or ROV control via zero leak hot stabs. Our DWSs and DWDWSs feature a self-adjusting auto-feed system to control wire bend, give you faster operation and increase wire life. Their unique hydrodynamic design dramatically reduces centrifugal forces, leaving more energy available for cutting and less energy wasted churning water. A wire cutting element infused with industrial diamonds cuts quickly and resists the compressive forces that can stall or bind conventional saws.
We also provide training on all our diamond wire saws. All of our products and tools are available for rent, sale, or hire.
Standard ROV Diamond Wire Saw (DWS)
Perfect for subsea pipeline repairs and subsea salvage, our ROV Diamond Wire Saw is a rugged saw suited for topside and deepwater applications. It cuts pipe and other material up to 13.5” in diameter. The saw is small and simple enough to be connected directly to the main hydraulics of the ROV (remote operation vehicle) without the added expense of an IHPU. The saw’s design is flexible enough to allow short lead-time customization. It’s also available with gravity feed fixtures for “hands off” operation.
Deepwater Diamond Wire Saws (DWDWSs)
Alpha Subsea Deepwater Diamond Wire Saws (DWDWSs) are engineered exclusively for hydraulic-powered ROVs (remote operation vehicles). The Deepwater series can operate at any workable depth, deep or shallow. These saws are great at cutting themselves out of a bind, resisting the compression forces that would lock up a traditional saw. Three models are available for cutting pipe from 4 to 52 inches (101.6 – 1321mm) OD, including the 5230 saw, the 3616 saw, and the 1604 saw. These saws are great for DWERT (Deepwater Emergency Response Tool) operations and cutting mixed materials (such as steel and grout).
