Receptacles and Position Indication Systems

Oliver Valvetek frequently supplies ROV receptacles and position indication systems for use with our own valves and other subsea equipment, such as electrical penetrators and either small or large bore gate valves.

At Oliver Valvetek, we are experienced in providing extensive field-proven and flexible subsea valve solutions for oil and gas applications from extraction through to processing.

The simple progressive indicator system has been designed to fail should the mechanism become jammed by a foreign body in such a way that does not prevent the functioning of the attached valve or equipment. The receptacles can also be provided with ROV retrievable shear pin Cartridge System designed to protect equipment being over-torqued, especially when the ROV receptacle torque rating exceeds that of the maximum operating torque of the valve.

Key Features of Position Indication Systems:

  • Simple and robust position indication system for ROV operation.
  • Suitable for fitting to a range of different high and low torque ROV receptacles.
  • Easily adaptable for the different number of turns, the sweep of the indicating arm, left or right handed operation and location of indicating arm.
