- Specially Designed for Heavy Duty Fuel & Oil Transport in Marine & Offshore environments
- Completely Antistatic: 2 grounding wires totally encapsulated within the external black straps to prevent static build up
- Low Weight & Flexible for Fast Deployment and Retrieval
- Blue and Black Colored Options Fully Approved for Potable Water - NSF/ANSI/CAN Standard 61 Certified
High visibility orange cover is the standard. Blue (NSF certified version), black (NSF certified version), and NATO green options are also available upon request and minimum order quantity.
The OROFLEX OFFSHORE hose contains 2 electric wires embedded within the hose to prevent the build up of static electricity. Each static wire has a 0.5mm2 cross section and is totally encapsulated within a black strap along the hose. This construction makes the ORO- FLEX OFFSHORE hose highly conductive and yet flexible, with a much lower electric resistance than the 1.5 ohm/ft (4.9 ohm/m) stated in the in the MIL-PRF-370K/2017 standard. *
* The 1 1/4” hose has only 1 electrical wire.
As requested by purchaser; crimped ferrule couplings, segmented couplings, conical couplings, Camlock, Victaulic, Storz, etc. The hose must be properly connected to conductive couplings and properly grounded when transferring fuels in order to prevent electric build up. To do so, the 2 electric wires woven into the body of the hose need to be electrically bonded to the couplings.
Designed and recommended for fuel and oil discharge operations in refineries, bunkering, offshore industry, chemical plants, and military installations. Ideal for brackish and seawater transfer, brine transfer, ship-to-shore unloading, ship-to- ship refueling, bulk fuel discharge/loading, tank- to-tank transfer, offshore rig supply, drill water, drilling muds, cement, bulk powder, high pressure bypass, and drinking water transport (NSF approved versions).
Made from circularly woven 100% high tenacity synthetic yarn, completely protected and locked- in by a tough, highly resistant thermoplastic polyurethane extruded through the weave, forming a single homogenous construction without the use of glues or adhesives. It includes 2 electrical grounding wires totally encapsulated within the external black straps along the hose to help prevent static build up. The construction of the hose does not permit corrosion or scaling, while giving a high resistance against abrasion and cutting. Easy handling, storage & transport, which allows for fast installation and retrieval. 2% maximum hose elongation and 15% maximum hose expansion.
Standard lengths in 330ft (100m) and 660ft (200m). Longer lengths may be available upon request.
The OROFLEX OFFSHORE hose will extend the lifetime of your application when under extreme conditions, where abrasion is the main concern. Under practical conditions, thermoplastic polyurethane is considered to be the most abrasion resistant elastomeric material.
Service Temperature Range:
From -58°F (-50°C) to 150°F (65°C), with peaks of up to 175°F (80°C). Special versions for higher and lower temperatures available upon request.
No visible signs of cracking will appear due to the ozone. Excellent weather and UV resistance.
Exposure to seawater and contamination by most chemical substances, hydrocarbons, oils and greases has no effect on the short or long term performance of the hose. A chemical resistance chart is available and TIPSA will supply specific chemical resistance data when requested by the purchaser for unique applications.
a. Ultimate Tensile Strength of the lining: Minimum guaranteed value of 5,800 psi (40 MPa).
b. Ultimate Elongation: 500% minimum.
