About HCL Smart Protectors

The Smart ® Protector is not only used as a cable protector downhole. It can be used as well to protect & attach cables in many other situations in conjunction with either the Smart® Band or Smart® Tie.

These are the attachment of Cathodic protection cables to Marine structures and the attachment of Sensor cables to Risers Subsea.

The Smart ® Protector is a patented product developed in cooperation with Shell. It is designed to operate within restricted annular clearances, to accommodate various tubing diameters, all coupling types and most cable combinations.



These protectors are available in Nylon 66, Nylon 11, Nylon 12, PPS or PEEK to assist Smart® Band and Smart® Ties.
