KNOWLEDGE EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE

Knowledge, Experience & Expertise

As global operators, you want to maintain the utmost levels of safety while bringing increased flexibility to oil and gas production. Trelleborg Oil & Marine is your partner in delivering high-performing, innovative and qualified solutions to enhance overall efficiency of your assets. 
We develop and manufacture the widest range of flexible bonded hose solutions for terminal and offshore oil and gas transfer applications. We offer hoses with both nipple and nippleless technologies, including single, double and dual carcass designs. Our products are applicable for use in submarine, floating or other specific configurations, and are suitable for use in even the harshest of environments.
We create solutions that are tailored to your unique requirements, using expert polymer engineering to seamlessly take your pro-jects from concept, to manufacturing, testing, and installation.

Innovation, Research & Development

Trelleborg’s innovative oil hose solutions are the culmination of 40 years’ research and development at Trelleborg’s renowned testing centre in Clermont-Ferrand, France.

Our R&D team gets involved at the earliest possible stage of all projects, cooperating with our customers in defining the most appropriate technical solutions for the targeted application and design life.

Trelleborg’s R&D team uses prototypes to undergo rigorous mechanical and chemical testing, as well as hydrodynamic analysis. The results undergo a detailed analysis to determine material behavior laws, establish ageing models for realistic service conditions, and provide a detailed assessment of performance under fatigue.

A consultative Approach for Customized Solutions

Trelleborg understands that when it comes to selecting hoses, one size does not fit all. We therefore place vital importance on taking a consultative approach with customers to ensure the most suitable solution for each project. The following factors of the global environment are all carefully analyzed:

•Fluid properties
•Standard and specific requirements
•Environmental and operational conditions
•Application and configuration
•Expected or real service life and maintenance program.

World-Class Factory

Our factory is based in Clermont Ferrand, France. Trelleborg Industrie SAS (TISAS) is the headquarters of the Fluid Handling Solutions Business Unit. Spanning 110000 m², it is home to 500 employees,

The site serves as the location for manufacturing rubber compounds, performing full-scale tests, developing new material and components, assessing ageing hoses and more.

The factory, which also manufactures industrial hoses, has a Quality, Safety and Environment system management ISO 9001, API Spec Q1, ISO 14001. The factory adheres to the highest international standards. Manufacturing operations follow a strict Trelleborg Code of Conduct, and all operations are conducted under the Trelleborg Safety@Work system.

All our hoses are submitted to Factory Acceptance Tests, in accordance with international standards and project requirements. Hoses are only released if they withstand this demanding proof testing session.

Service and Lifecycle Optimization

Trelleborg performs on-site supervision during installation, inspection and testing, for requalification, hose maintenance, and inspection programs. This includes on-site repairs to ensure that hoses are not only performing correctly, but are meeting the highest standards in safety and quality.

This can even extend to undertaking specific investigation programs. These may include inspections, tests on site or in the factory such as OCIMF and burst tests, or ageing analysis of the components such as adhesion tests or elastomer property analysis.

Factory Acceptance Tests

Trelleborg Oil & Marine hoses are submitted to extensive Factory Acceptance Test Program according to international recognized standards (API Spec 17K; G.M.P.H.O.M. 2009) and specific project requirements.
Each hose is released by Quality Department only if it demonstrated his ability to withstand this Factory Acceptance “Torture” session.
Standard factory acceptance tests include Visual inspection, Hydrostatic test, Adhesion test, bending test, vacuum test… and we can also propose specific tests like tension and kerozene.
Customers or their representatives are welcome to attend these test sequences and witness the quality level of Trelleborg Oil & Marine Hoses.
