Leg Mating Units

Leg Mating Unit (LMU) is specially designed for the smooth installation of the top deck on the jacket legs. They generally take lateral misalignment jerks and vertical loads and position the top deck easily on the Jacket. They can be provided in both Top Deck and Jackets as per the requirement. These units are subjected to cyclic test, load deformation test and extreme load bearing capacity test in view of its critical function.

“DIPTI” Leg Mating Unit (LMU) is specially designed for the smooth installation of the top deck on the jacket legs. They generally take lateral misalignment jerks and vertical loads and position the top deck easily on the Jacket. The deck is lowered on these mating units and they smoothly transfer these load to the structure without jerks and impact loading. “DIPTI” Leg Mating Unit is a combination of horizontal elastomers and vertical elastomers assembled in metal fabricated cans. These elastomeric units with structural support show a very good resilience in actual load transfer conditions.

“DIPTI” Leg Mating Unit can be provided in both Top Deck and Jackets as per the requirement. These units are subjected to cyclic load test, load deformation test and extreme load bearing capacity test in view of its critical function. The elastomers of our Leg Mating Units are capable of performing without creeping under high load as they are made from special grade elastomeric compound to achieve desired test results. “DIPTI” Leg Mating Units are available in different designs. More details can be provided on specific request. Custom made Leg Mating Units are designed and manufactured as per client’s requirements. IRM possesses in house facility to design, manufacture & test the LMU’s including evaluation of design with FEA and further manufacturing and testing of the LMU under stringent quality check.
