Special Purpose Hydraulic Cutters Print E-mail

JAG Special Purpose Hydraulic Cutters
are uniquely designed and individually manufactured to meet specific production requirements including:

  • Manual, remote or robotic control
  • Vertical or horizontal operating positions
  • Protection to suit the operating environment with an epoxy paint finish for radioactive, offshore open air applications and a nickel plate finish for offshore subsea applications.
  • Single or double acting cylinder configurations with a high tonnage option for low pressure hydraulic system applications.

JAG Special Purpose Hydraulic Cutters are designed with a built in 4:1 safety factor and are manufactured to a rigorous quality procedure, proof tested and certified to meet with current CE specifications and designed to operate up to a maximum working pressure of 10,000 PSI.

The cutting equipment can incorporate hydraulically operating jaws and latches, roller guide systems, guide shute systems, guarding systems and mobile work stations. All the equipment incorporates an easy replaceable blade system and specialised seal kit variations such as polyurethane seals for use with hydraulic fluids, viton seals for use with water glycol fluids and EPR seals for use with fire resistant fluids.

The cutting equipment has a proven track record within:

  • Offshore Subsea Engineering / recycling
  • Offshore Oil / Gas Production, Exporation and Decommissioning
  • Nuclear Power Generation and Decommissioning


    For being high performance, reliable and robust production equipment, and as a no nonsense ready to operate production package when combined with the or range of products, to give the ultimate cutting package.
