Fendering
Floating Fenders
Submarine fenders are designed to offer higher bursting strength than a
normal surface fender, the minimum burst pressures are:
2000
mm diameter and smaller = 4.9kgf/cm
2
2500
mm diameter and larger = 5.7kgf/cm
2
To facilitate water charge and discharge, flange openings are sited at
each end of the fender. In addition, submarine fenders are fitted with
a safety valve to enable excess pressure to be released, should over
compression occur.
