LPG Floating Hoses applications: LPG transfer in wharf and dock-side applications
LPG hoses construction for a given applications depends upon the product being transferred and the operational parameters. In particular, refrigerated LPG has a different set of hose system transfer requirements to that of LPG at ambient temperatures.
Temperature: -50℃ to +50℃
●End fitting materials for low temperature service environment
●Reinforced lining applied along the hoses bore to reduce the risk of explosive decompression
● Hoses will be fitted with a spool piece at both ends equipped with lifting lugs for easy material handling.
●Hoses equipped with suitable rubber collars capable of preventing mechanical wear to external body of hoses.
●The Hose Shall be marked “LPG” per 10 feet interval accoring to API 2510
Operational considerations include the possible need for integral ballast to keep a submarine hose submerged in the case of gaseous product, and flange insulation kits to provide electrical discontinuity.
