Double carcass anti-pollution floating hoses for the transport of petroleum fluids between FPSO and tanker.
SAFLOTE anti-pollution hoses incorporate a double carcass system; a primary carcass surrounded by a secondary carcass – in essence a hose within a hose. Both carcasses are independently secured to integral hose end fittings.
In the unlikely event that the primary carcass fails the secondary carcass remains intact. Having been unstressed prior to the failure the secondary carcass has all the required strength and containment capabilities to take over, thus containing the oil and preventing oil spillage and associated environmental damage.
