The Specialist Buyers Guide for the Oil and Gas Industry
Congratulations to the TWI team behind new technology product SurFlow™ who scooped a prestigious award from Composites UK for Innovation in Composite Design. SurFlow™ is an innovative new method of secure data transmission through composite structures using electromagnetic surface waves.
SurFlow™ allows a composite structure to become the medium for surface wave propagation, eliminating the need for wiring or fibre optics without affecting the performance of the composite itself. The innovative technology allows for data transmission, whether for information, live video feeds or control signals through the surface of the composite itself, and can be used in a range of applications from aircraft, to cars, trains, ships, buildings and even in oil and gas composite risers.
