NEW ENHANCEMENTS TO THE BIRNS MILLENNIUM™ CONNECTOR SERIES
BIRNS, Inc. has announced some newly added features to its flagship high-performance subsea connector line, the BIRNS Millennium™ series. The 6km-rated high density line of connectors now includes hex flats on the coupling ring to make the connectors even easier to loosen by hand or with a wrench, and allows a torque wrench to be used so that a specific mating torque can be applied for certain high-precision applications. BIRNS has also developed special wrenches for each connector size in the series.
Each hard phosphor bronze coupling ring features Higbee threads—a special formation at the beginning of the thread providing positive identification to eliminate cross threading—and includes exclusive anti-rotation locking set screws. Another new feature is a special viewing hole that allows a user to visually verify that the connectors are fully mated, serves as a drain hole to allow better water drainage when surfacing and even provides a spanner-wrench hole if needed.
