Reliability at 3000 Meters
Stab connections designed for function, engineered for life.
Parker’s MCD Series Stab Plates provide maximum performance, ease of installation, long life, and a sound hydraulic connection in harsh subsea conditions.
Engineered to function under demanding conditions, MCD Series Stab Plates have been designed to handle separation loads in excess of 100,000 lbs allowing connections with all lines at 15,000 psi. A high strength locking bayonet assures the plates remain securely connected for reliable performance. With the versatility to be custom configured for each application, MCD Series Stab Plates can accommodate combinations of 1/8” to 1-1/2” quick couplings. When used with Parker’s DSL Series Couplings, the MCD Series Stab Plates provide unparalleled performance and reliability.
MCD Series Stab Plates have best-in-class guiding features and are light weight for ease of handling during installation. Connection indicators are clearly visible to show the ROV pilot when a proper connection has been made. Additionally, an ROV operated secondary release is a standard feature of the MCD Series Stab Plates. A standard work class ROV equipped with a Class 4 ROV torque tool securely connects the mating plates. Parker offers stab plates, quick couplings, termination frames and tube bundle assemblies, to provide a complete subsea hydraulic connection solution. Manufacturing strength, engineering and quality focused culture, along with global service and distribution – This is Parker.
