Production Fastening Systems Receives US Patent # 9,732,884 for the T-SEP™ Assembly “Polymer Locking Spacer System”

Production Fastening Systems, LLC – Industrial Metal Fastening Supplier

The T-SEP Assembly is a product that wasn’t an overnight idea, but rather an evolving solution for an issue that plagues offshore pneumatics. We stand by the T-SEP Assembly as the most efficient way to fasten, align, separate and elevate pneumatic tubing in the harsh offshore environment.

Since its inception in 2000, Production Fastening Systems’ T-SEP™ Assembly has continued to evolve while keeping one goal: preventing crevice corrosion by efficiently fastening, aligning, separating, and elevating pneumatic tubing in one assembly. PFS’s pneumatic tube separation assembly is designed to maintain a separation within pneumatic tube delivery systems while significantly reducing the opportunity for crevice corrosion.

Traditionally, parallel runs of pneumatic tubing have been separated through the use of “saddles” or “notching”; a method that is effective in terms of tube separation, but allows corrosive elements to gather at the points of separation or beneath the tube. Furthermore, the saddle/ notch method creates many difficulties in the installation process. Without a snap-in-place aspect, other locking systems require multiple persons/ hands to hold the tubing in place until the top retainer is ready to be fastened.

T-SEP™ Sales Manager Jacob Keller says, “The T-SEP™ Assembly is a product that wasn’t an overnight idea, but rather an evolving solution for an issue that plagues offshore pneumatics. We believe crevice corrosion is a topic that deserves attention and PFS is up for the challenge of providing that solution. We stand by the T-SEP™ Assembly as the most efficient way to fasten, align, separate and elevate pneumatic tubing in the harsh offshore environment.” The T-SEP™ Assembly’s unique design allows harmful offshore elements (salt water, salt spray, chlorides, etc.) to escape the tubing before corrosion can develop. Through diligent research and utilization of evolving technology, PFS stands by the T-SEP™ assembly as the most efficient method of pneumatic tube separation. The latest version of the T-SEP™ Assembly is the non-metallic version which is designed to maintain a…
