TiNi’s Shackle Release was developed for Subsea rigging applications which require support and release of critical payloads remotely. The release function is achieved by using one of TiNi’s subsea Frangibolts coupled to powerful jaws which provide a leveraging mechanism much like a pair of pliers. Scalable design allows hold down and release of loads in excess of 100,000 lbf.
TINI Shackle Release offers the following advantages:
NEA (Non-Explosive Actuators) – As with all TiNi products, the Shackle Release is non-pyrotechnic and field reset-able with a minimum qualified life of 50 cycles.
Field Reset-able and Reliable – The Shackle Release is reset by simply reloading the Frangibolt Actuator (and Fastener) which provides the hold down and release function.
Rated to 5,000 psi – The Shackle Release is rugged in design and may be used in direct sea water at great depths
Redundant Firing Circuit – As with all TiNi Actuators a redundant firing circuit is incorporated that may be operated from a variety of voltage sources (from 28 to 120 Vdc).
Safe to Use – The Shackle Release is safe to use and requires no special precautions in handling, usage, or transport. It is also not sensitive to ESD (Electro-Static Discharge) or EMI (Electro-Magnetic Interference).
