AREA OF USE

offshore & subsea Polyform works closely with clients in several industries; maritime, ports, offshore and subsea oil and gas, and offers heavy duty mooring and marking buoys, hose flotation and subsea mooring.


FlowSafe

Hose flotation device

FlowSafe hose flotation devices are used in various fields of marine activities, such as offshore oil- and gas industry and port facilities.

Transfer of fluid at sea is often associated with serious problems – especially in severe weather. During discharge, the hose sinks as it fills with water, slurry, or whatever is being pumped through the hose. Even slight movement of the vessel can cause the hose to come in contact with the propeller. FlowSafe flotation devices are formed like a wrapping that can be opened along a lengthwise split. This makes FlowSafe easy to mount around the hose. 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.

With FlowSafe hose flotation device 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.

Modular mooring and spring buoys

The APB-series represents a modular series of buoys, designed for surface and sub-surface use.

Certified fiber strap alternative All APB products can be delivered with an fiber strap option, alternatively to the standard steel armature/chain. This option is certified as a lifting appliance.

The buoys are otomolded from polyethylene (PE) and filled with polystyrene foam (EPS), polyurethane foam (PUR) or other materials depending on the application. The buoys are equipped with hot dip galvanized steel armatures, four full-length hot dip galvanized steel bolts and continuous chain through the center. The steel armatures and chain vary from application to application depending on whether it is for aquaculture, offshore, surface, sub-surface or other installations.
