Roxtec International is the world leader in modular-based cable and pipe transits. Roxtec sealing solutions are used by leading players in the offshore industry to ensure safety, efficiency and long-term operational reliability.
Roxtec was founded in Sweden in 1990 with the invention of Multidiameter™, a solution based on adaptable sealing modules with removable layers. The solution revolutionised the design and process of cable and pipe installation. Users can perform tasks without knowing the size or number of cables in advance, which drastically reduces engineering hours.
Thanks to Roxtec Multidiameter, each module can handle a variety of cable sizes. It is also possible to add extra capacity from the start.
The Roxtec technology enables sealing of cables and pipes of various sizes and materials, which minimises the need for different parts and reduces installation time. It makes planning easier and simplifies the work of designers and installers.
The Roxtec transit manager (RTM) software is especially developed for design departments. It simplifies planning and design of cable and pipe transits and allows cost savings in all phases.
The Roxtec sealing system is a mechanical sealing solution available for various applications, including multiple as well as single-cable and pipe penetrations. With six basic modules, it is possible to seal cables and pipes from 4mm to 99mm in diameter in transits with multiple openings. Standard versions of single penetration seals handle cables or pipes with a diameter of up to 580mm.
The sealing modules are inserted around cables or pipes in frames that are welded or bolted to the structure. The frames are available in different shapes, materials and sizes for different applications. The system is sealed with a Roxtec Wedge or an integrated compression unit.
The Roxtec sealing system is used to seal all types of penetrating cables and pipes, passing through decks and bulkheads on rigs and other offshore units.
The system has been developed and designed to withstand very tough conditions. Roxtec seals ensure protection against fire, jet-fire, water, and gas pressure and explosions, as well as electromagnetic interference. They can also provide solutions for bonding and grounding. The system is well suited to seal hydraulic or sprinkler pipes, as the rubber absorbs vibrations and reduces noise.
The seals are used between different sections, such as machine and equipment areas, storage rooms, and living compartments.They are also used in various types of control cabinets and junction boxes.
Roxtec products are tested and approved for use in A-class and H-class rated sections according to IMO Res. A.754 (18) and SOLAS. Roxtec products are certified by classification societies such as Lloyd's Register of Shipping, American Bureau of Shipping, Bureau Veritas, Det Norske Veritas, Germanischer Lloyd, and Russian Maritime Register of Shipping.
Roxtec serves and supports customers in more than 70 markets through 21 subsidiaries and a network of distributors. Roxtec representatives around the world help customers find the solution that corresponds to their specific needs. The R&D resources, with design departments and test labs, give Roxtec an opportunity to continuously perform tests, develop products and improve solutions.
