3″ TYPE 1 (LACE UP) FLOATATION COLLARS
Flexible flotation collars are specifically designed to wrap around a flexible type hose. The collar allows sufficient buoyancy and acts as a preventive safety measure, to keep the hose away from the ship’s propellers. The flexible material allows the collar to bend following the natural curve of the hose when several products, such as diesel, cement, drilling mud, barite, drinking water, and petroleum-based products are transferred from a ship to the coast or from a boat to a platform. The necklaces are designed to be stored in the form of a flat package, ideal where space is minimal.
The “Dayglow Orange” floating collar is made of a resistant, flexible and resistant nylon material, reinforced with double strength nylon seams. The specialized internal flotation aid material is encapsulated by using a series of accordion-style pockets with appropriate brass eyelets placed along the outer edges (as shown in Diagram 1 above).
A lightweight nylon cord fitted through the brass eyelets secures the float collar along with the flexible hose. These flotation collars can remain in the hose and wind up on the reel when they are not in use. As shown in Diagram 2.
