Features & Benefits

  • Used in onshore and offshore drilling operations on the blow out preventer (BOP) to provide hydraulic power to seal the well head in case of a kick or an emergency situation where operation is critical during exposure to fire and high temperature
  • Fire rating meets and exceeds Lloyd’s Register OD/1000/499 at 700°C for 5 minutes in accordance to the guidelines of API 16D
  • The QR74 quick release valved couplings also fully comply to Lloyd’s register OD/1000/499 fire rating
  • Stainless steel armour is available upon request to protect the hose against external mechanical damage
