Hawser Flotation - advantages include quick and easy installation, and as the floats are manufactured in short lengths they can be individually replaced or additional flotation added cost effectively.
We manufacture a complete range of floats for umbilicals, ropes, cables, wirelines, pick-up wires and many other applications. Floats are available for single and double hawser applications and can be produced as split-type or tubular.
Hawser and umbilical floats are manufactured from closed cell polyethylene foam, encapsulated within a tough polyurethane elastomer skin. This high performance outer casing is easily visible, resistant to ultra-violet degradation and will provide protection from abrasion and collision. The properties of the material are such that they combine strength with flexibility.
Other advantages include quick and easy installation, and as the floats are manufactured in relatively short lengths they can be individually replaced or additional flotation added cost effectively.
Dimensions can be adjusted to suit any particular range of buoyancy requirement. Flotation modules can be fixed in a number of different ways and strapping recesses can be manufactured within the float if required. Banding and hire tools are available from us on request.
