Offshore Marine Hoses

Offshore loading systems are also used for transfer of non-crude oil products. Bunker or ballast lines may run alongside the crude transfer hose system. Refined products such as unleaded petrol can be imported or exported. Essential chemicals for a variety of industrial processes are also transferred by this method.

For many product applications, the Dunlop standard nitrile rubber hose lining provides the required resistance to product attack. However, other grades of rubber lining can also be used to line the hose wall - Viton, Chloroprene, Butyl etc. - to give best compatibility with whatever needs to be contained. In some cases, other parts of the hose have to be considered; stainless steel fittings and /or helical wire reinforcement; carbon steel end fittings for low temperature service; “bleeder” cords to exhaust gas that has permeated into the hose wall and so on.
