MORGRIP® Subsea Connectors


Hydratight's MORGRIP® Mechanical Connectors are used subsea in diver depths for pipeline tie-in and spool repair. The high performance products are designed to be simple and reliable to install with key diver-friendly design features, including "hands-clear" activation and external pressure test. No connector has ever proved impossible to install subsea, and none have ever failed in service.
