Floating hoses can be expensive for operators since the rubber, internal surfaces, and flange faces are frequently damaged by impact and corrosion. If damage is not handled quickly, it can result in a loss of buoyancy and, eventually, a catastrophic fuel/oil spill, with potentially costly consequences such as:
- Environmental deterioration
- Hazards to one’s health and safety
- Costs of cleanup and disposal
Costs of repair or replacement are high.
Failure or damage to any section of a floating hose that is not handled early enough might result in oil/fuel spills, which can cause major environmental damage and, as a result, financial ramifications.
Floating hose repair is a world-leading technology in Malaysia. After 50 years of brush-applied epoxy-ceramic restoration, a new dimension in repair technology has emerged. Cartridge spray elastomeric coating technology that has been proven and approved to provide long-term protection against erosion, corrosion, cavitation, and wear. Combining the efficiency and performance of vulcanised rubber coating with the simple processing of epoxy-ceramics for extraordinary lifetime enhancements using the newest cartridge spray technology.
To save money and effort, choose a liquid repair rubber coating that has been proven to work.
We provide technology that has been tried, tested, and authorised on a global scale for:
- Wear safety equipment.
- Resistance to Erosion
- Corrosion resistance
- Protection against cavitation
- Chemical Tolerance
- Noise abatement
- Resistance to slipping
- Repairs for damage and leaks
Repairing a Floating Hose’s Damaged Rubber
These rubber marine components may be used to repair damaged and broken flotation hoses, as well as other rubber marine parts. Despite the fact that they are designed to resist a lot of stress and wear over the course of their lives, repeated rips and tears can cause serious damage.
Regularly hitting the hoses by fishing boats and other vessels, or neighbouring ship propellers ripping parts off and causing major wounds while transferring and emptying fuel are just a few instances of what could be causing this. The afflicted hoses’ buoyancy element may be damaged, causing them to be submerged, which could be harmful depending on the extent of the damage.
Repairing Techniques of the Past
Vulcanization is by far the most used rubber repair procedure. Using this method, rubber components are heated and pressed together to generate a chemical bond. This therapy delivers long-term healing but is ineffectual due to its dependency on a small number of extremely particular environmental conditions and equipment. Vulcanization shutdowns are widespread as a result of the time it takes to transport specialised experts and equipment to the site.
Floating hose repair in Malaysia is available for Floating Hoses.
In this situation, cold-curing elastomers triumphed over the traditional solution. They can be used in situ instead of employing hot repair processes, and they don’t require any specialised equipment. This allows you to go back to work quickly while yet getting a long-lasting and adaptive cure.
The technique and Floating hose repair in Malaysia product should be chosen based on the type and level of damage, available work time, system pressure, and operational temperature.
