BASF, FoundOcean develop new grouting system

Offshore staff

MARLOW, UK – FoundOcean and BASF have launched an integrated material and service system to deliver a new high-strength grout.  MasterFlow 9800 was developed to improve productivity and safety in offshore structure grouting.

The MasterFlow 9800 grout system uses an upgraded version of FoundOcean’s Recirculating Jet Mixer (RJM). The delivery rates when using an RJM are upward of 20 cu m/hr (706 cu ft/hr) for faster annulus grouting, saving offshore operating days, said the venture.

“Aligning the excellent properties of the new offshore grout with the operational advantages of FoundOcean’s continuous mixing and pumping equipment will bring major health and safety improvements and installation cost reductions,” said Luc Westhof, global key account manager at BASF Construction Chemicals.
