BARDOT Cable & Flowline Protection provides localized shield to flexible pipes/umbilicals/cables against abrasion and impact which could damage the lines.
MATERIAL / DESIGN
BARDOT Cable & Flowline Protections are made of a range of fully qualified and field proven rigid Polyurethane Systems, depending the operational conditions (temperature, depth, bending requirements, etc…).
The interlocking system of the shells allows BARDOT Cable & Flowline Protections to be easily and quickly installed on the lines during offshore laying operations.
Tightening of the half shells is ensured by either stainless steel (Inconel 625, Super Duplex), carbon steel, or plastic straps.
Typical Ranges :
- Up to 3m length.
- Typical thickness, 20 to 40mm, adjustable.
- Line OD, from 40mm to 1200mm
SPECIAL APPLICATION - STIFFLEX®
BARDOT innovative design allows to follow the bending of the protected lines, while serving as well as a bending limitation. The special “wave” shape of the Stifflex® gives the possibility to set a specific stiffness in the protection, and therefore provides limitation from over bending. It also provides a very strong protection against impact and abrasion.
