Manufacturers of subsea products have learned that using ordinary fasteners on robotics and sophisticated machinery intended for the ocean depths is hazardous. Undersea exploration is expanding rapidly as scientists investigate environmental concerns, as states navigate strategic issues and as private companies explore subsea resources. And the sophisticated technology that goes into underwater equipment needs to be protected. ZAGO’s self-sealing fasteners protect critical high-value subsea assets from the encroachment of salt-water in the highly pressurized underwater environment.
While underwater technology continues to evolve and become ever more sophisticated, ZAGO’s products continue to withstand the test of time. Manufactured from highly corrosion resistant metals, ZAGO’s self sealing fasteners are engineered with a groove to accommodate a rubber o-ring that seals out the hazards posed by the undersea environment. ZAGO’s fasteners can be manufactured with a wide variety of rubber o-rings that are also particularly well-suited for salt water and pressure resistance.
ZAGO’s fasteners are uniquely designed to meet the challenging scientific and engineering problems posed by undersea exploration. ZAGO’s fasteners are capable of protecting high value equipment including sonar systems, advanced computers and inertial navigation systems that are required to survey ocean bottoms for days at a time or to trace meteorological and ocean conditions from the surface over long periods of time. The information provided by ocean exploration is critical to our understanding of our atmosphere and resources.
Not only is the ocean full of information, the ocean is full of power as well. ZAGO’s fasteners can be found on the most sophisticated equipment harvesting wave energy for transfer to power grids as well as ocean going solar arrays that power subsea exploration and information gathering. ZAGO’s fasteners allow ocean going and subsea robotics to withstand the harshest conditions while promoting the discovery of new insights and opportunities. In addition to protecting equipment from the encroachment of environmental hazards, ZAGO’s fasteners also prevent damage to the ocean ecosystems by preventing the leakage of hazardous fluids and other chemicals into the environment.
ZAGO’s fasteners are available in a wide array of head and recess types, sizes and materials. ZAGO produces its parts in a a cutting edge technology location in Newark, New Jersey a worldwide transportation hub adjacent to the Port of Newark and Newark Airport.
