Aquasign Applications – Trees


AQUASIGN are the recognised experts in subsea signage for safety critical environments.

Subsea tree’s are an assembly of valves, spools and fittings, and are an important piece of equipment to identify as they monitor and control the production of a subsea well.

Typical Substrates

Aquasign markers can identify tree’s with a simple fixing mechanism. Tree’s tend to be coated steel and have flat surfaces for a marker to be placed on.

Typical Marker Design

Whilst there are limited industry standards specific to subsea identification, typical text heights are provided below:

  • Orientation (tree name) 100-150mm
  • Identification (valve no.s) 50-150mm
  • Positioning (open/closed) 15-100mm

Learn about the design features of our subsea markers by visiting our design page.

Fixing Recommendations – ONSHORE

For installation on the surface, prior to deployment. AQUASIGN offer both adhesive and mechanical fixings to suit any application:

Adhesive: KISS* / Mechanical: Bolted

*Recommendations are made on the attaching surface, visit our Knowledge Hub for our Substrate Guide for further details.

Fixing Recommendations – OFFSHORE

Offshore or ‘retrofit’ solutions will be dependent on project location and installation method i.e.:

Diver: Magnet*  /   Subsea Adhesive  /  ROV: Magnet*

*Magnet use is dependent on size/space available

More information can be found out about KISSSubsea Adhesive and Magnets and all our other products in our Knowledge Hub: datasheets, product specifications and videos are just a few of the resources to give you the Aquasign know-how.
