The Shape Memory Alloy Subsea Fitting from FMC Technologies is designed to replace the orbital welding process used to connect the small-bore hydraulic tubing used in subsea equipment. The technology is a nickel/titanium material that returns to its original shape after being subjected to environmental changes such as temperature and pressure. Widely used in the automotive, aerospace, and biomedical industries, it can be used to help mitigate corrosion and hydrogen embrittlement that can occur in a subsea environment.
