Two new hoses are on the market to withstand the elements. One model is fire retardant while the other has built-in flotation capability.
Fire-rated diesel hoses have been tested and are certified by Lloyds Register to OSG/1000/499 to withstand 700°C. for 30 min. Typically they are employed for fuel oil suction and delivery with up to 50% aromatic content. They are also suited for seawater, mud, or other offshore duties as well as bunkering.
The floating hose range serves bulk material, diesel, and potable water applications. It eliminates the need for cumbersome flotation collars in these type uses. Its integral buoyancy layers feature eliminates the need for separate tie-on flotation collars. This removes possibilities of collars moving in-service and affecting buoyancy. Additional data on both hoses are yours free.
