Marine supply for fendering system floating pneumatic fender Since 1992 Fendering is basically the interface between a vessel and the berth facility. This medium serves to absorb a certain portion of the kinetic energy a vessel without damage to the vessel and the waterfront structure. In the case of rubber fenders, which are generally relatively soft, the majority of the energy is absorbed through elastic deflection fo the fender. But, possibly also the deflection of the berth facility and/or the vessel’s hull will contribute to the absorption of the kinetic energy. Pneumatic Rubber Fender has been used for almost 50 years, it's also called as dock Rubber Fender or Boat Fenders. It is the leading anticollision device for marine application in the world. Marine Pneumatic rubber defense fender is used as a protective medium for ship to ship contact, ship to quay,and ship-to-berthing. Pneumatic rubber fenders are a type of marine equipments that are used to prevent boats, ships and other naval vessels from colliding against each other or against docks, wharves and piers. In other words ship fenders can be simply termed as a ship bumper. And more and more ship owner install the STS Fender on FPSO and LNG, it is more safety than other methods. Advantages of pneumatic rubber fender: 1. Advantage at inclined berthing: Ship ususally make initial contact with the dock or another ship on STS operation at oblique angle. Under 15 degrees at inclined compression, the energy absorption of pneumatic fenders doesn't decrease. The foam fender has a less decrease than solid fenders. 2. Resistance for shearing force Because of the special shape of semicircle end, it provide the best resistance against shearing force when the ship shift to th correct mooring position. 3. Low reaction force The soft reaction force of pneumatic fenders cannot lead to damage the ship and mooring facilities. The increase of reaction force of Floating Fender is not sharply. Its performance is better than solid rubber fender. And it's ruinous for the ship and mooring facilities. 4. Most economical fendering system The pneumatic fenders have simple construction than the solid fendering system. This simple structure ensure the econimal of cost. Meanwhile, because of the floating fenders can float on the water, the floating fenders can be installed by a guy Chain or rope. So it has the advantages of simple and low installation. The use of best material and accessroies ensure the low maintanance cost. 5. Adaptable to the tide The pneumatic fenders can float on the water surface depend on the change of tide. So it's the best choice for the port or quay with huge tide change. Floating fenders also can be used for the ship-to-ship operation discretionarily. Florescence pneumatic rubber fender type 1.Net-type fender: fenders which are covered by tire chain net, each end shall be linked together with one to two ring(s). 2.Sling-type fender: fenders which are designed to be used without a protection net. Material of pneumatic rubber fender An rubber roller Airbag is to be constructed of an outer rubber layer, one or more synthetic-tyre-cord layers, and an inner rubber layer. The arrangement of synthetic-tyre-cord reinforcement layers is shown in the picture below, all materials shall be vulcanized firmly.
