Title: SEALING PROFILE PROTECTOR
Abstract:
A sealing profile protector for a subsea hydrocarbon production or processing system component includes a body having an contact surface which is configured to engage a sealing profile on the component. When the sealing profile protector is installed, the contact surface displaces seawater from the sealing profile. In this manner, contaminants are inhibited from forming on the sealing surface after the sealing profile protector is installed.
