Updated Subsea Connectors
For Millennium Series


July 6, 2017

New features have been added to the Millennium series of 6-km-rated subsea connectors, including hex flats on its coupling rings to make the connectors even easier to loosen by hand or with a wrench. Special wrenches have been developed for each connector size in the series.

Each hard phosphor bronze coupling ring features Higbee threads—a special formation at the beginning of the thread providing positive identification to eliminate cross threading—and includes exclusive anti-rotation locking set screws. Another new feature is a special viewing hole that allows a user to visually verify that the connectors are fully mated, provides additional water drainage when surfacing and even provides a spanner-wrench capability.
