Pneumatic Rubber Fender also known as
Marine rubber fender, it is often installed on the terminal or ship, which aims
to absorb or reduce the collision energy between ship and ship or ship and
dock. This kind of product can protect the ship or dock from the damage of
collision. LuHang pneumatic rubber fenders are used widely around the world.
High-pressure floating pneumatic rubber
fender (yokohama fenders) is a leading anti-collision device for marine
application in the world today. It is made of synthetic-cord-reinforced rubber
sheet with compressed air inside to enable it to float on the water and work as
a shock absorber when ship-to-ship (STS) transfer operations and ship-to-dock
(STD) berthing and mooring operations. The first Pneumatic Rubber Fenders
(yokohama fenders) was developed in 1958 based on the technology for automobile
tires and rubber aircraft fuel tanks by Yokohama Rubber Company.
Floating pneumatic rubber
fender have the advantages of massive energy absorption with low unit surface
pressure acted upon the ship. So pneumatic fender has become an ideal ship
protection medium used extensively by large tankers, LPG vessels, ocean
platforms, bulk carriers and floating structures, large docks, harbor and
Floating pneumatic rubber
fenders shall consist of an out rubber, reinforcement synthetic-tyre-cord
layer, and inner rubber, vulcanized firmly.
1. The out rubber is used to
protect the cord layers and inner rubber from abrasion and other external forces.
This rubber compound has sufficient tensile and tear resistance strength to
withstand anticipated weather conditions and severe usage.
2. The reinforcement
synthetic-tyre-cord layer strong enough to maintain the internal air pressure
of the fender.
3. The inner rubber layer
seals the pressurized air inside the fender.
4. Fenders of diameter 2500mm
and larger equipped with safety valve for releasing excess internal pressure
when the fenders are over-compressed accidentally.
The properties requirements of
outer and inner rubber material of floating pneumatic rubber fenders comply
with ISO 17357:2002.
Pneumatic floating fenders are an proven alternative to fixed fenders and are preferably used:
In ports with extreme tidal variations
For ship-to-ship lightering operations
For all Navy vesels due to low hull
pressure and the advantage of a proportional increase of reaction force
and energy absorption
Tankers, Gas Carriers and Bulk Cargo Ships
Fast ferries and aluminum hulled vessels
Temporary of permanent installations
Rapid response and emergency fendering
As stand-off fenders to realign ships with shore facilities.
