Hose flotation device
Polyform Hose Floatation devices are used in various fields of marine activities, such as offshore sun- and windenergy installations, oil- and gas industry, port facilities and aquaculture.
It is important to secure and support hoses and cables, both at surface and subsea applications. Destruction of the hose or cable requiring repair or replacement at considerable cost that could have been avoided.
The consequences arising from a broken hose can be extreme:
Contamination due to spillage and damage to the supply ship putting it out of operation. Both, the vessel and the crew may be exposed to danger.
With Polyform hose flotation devices fitted around the transfer hose these problems may to a large degree be avoided. The hose will float in plain sight, making discharging much simpler and safer.
FlowSafe produced from environmentally friendly Bacell material
FlowSafe hose flotation devices are manufactured from BACELL™ - an ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) material made according to our in-house developed raw material recipe. BACELL™is a highly shock absorbent, strong and elastic material with 100% watertight cells. Relative to its strength, BACELL™ has very low density, resulting in high buoyancy. To the highest possible degree, the outstanding elasticity of the BACELL™ material prevents FlowSafe from shrinking, deforming or breaking.
Easy to mount
- FlowSafe flotation devices are formed like a wrapping that can be opened along a premade lengthwise split.
- FlowSafe can be held in place by adequate fastening devices, such as metal or plastic strips which fit into the grooves around the outer perimeter of the flotation device.
- Being recessed inside the grooves, the securing strips are largely protected from being damaged.
- Mounting tool design specs. available.
