Floating Hose – Standard

Floating Hose – Standard

Floating hoses with integrated buoyancy for conveying extracted materials in powder, granular or semi-fluid form.








 

Features & Benefits

  • Buoyancy is provided by an outer shell of closed cell PE foam around the rubber tube
  • A robust rubber cover with integrated fabric reinforcements protects the foam body against external damage
  • At the same time, the outer skin prevents absorption of water and protects the hose against UV light
  • This hose type is ideal as a connection to submarine or overland pipelines
  • The riser hose version is equipped with additional reinforcing steel rings to maintain dimensional stability in all environmental conditions
  • Our Floating Hoses are bespoke systems consisting of several elements with different buoyancy configurations (if required), e.g. to build U-shape before head-floats (for TSHD-connection)
  • The hoses can be equipped with sufficient buoyancy to effectively convey slurries up to a density of 2.3 kg/ dm³
