Smartflow Invests in Augmented Reality App

We’ve teamed up with Augmented Reality experts at Clay 10 in Hessle to simulate our latest designs in the field and offshore.

AR can help us maintain our global presence during the covid-19 pandemic – and beyond – by bringing our latest product innovations for the global fluid transfer market to life.

Clay 10 has been developing the app for us which is activated by simply scanning each product’s badge with a smartphone.

The technology will support both sales and training, allowing global distributors to demo how the products work to potential clients, wherever they are based. 

AR will undoubtedly help the international launch of our latest range of dry break couplings at a time when trade shows and international travel have been put on hold.

The app will also be a handy tool for users, where they can visualise how the products are serviced through a virtual animation and download all technical and supporting documents.

Smartflow’s products are designed for use by the oil and gas industry and in situations where it is critical to avoid spills when transferring chemicals and other liquids.

The technology will have a vital training function as our main markets will be offshore oil platforms, vehicle fuelling stations and hazardous chemical plants where it isn’t always possible to demonstrate and learn on the job.

Our latest couplings, in new sizes and materials, have recently been developed with the support of a £173K funding deal from Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency, and will be released to market later this year. They range in size from a one-inch coupling in lightweight titanium for managing lower volume transfers of toxic and corrosive liquids up to four-inches for high volume fluid transfers for use offshore, including a cost-effective high strength carbon steel version. They can all be accessed and viewed in your own environment, using the new AR app.
