Description of Pneumatic Rubber Fender
Headway Pneumatic Rubber Fenders are manufactured and tested comply with ISO 17357. Headway real Yokohama type pneumatic fenders are made by mould based on Korean production technology. The high pressure floating pneumatic rubbIt 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 absorbed when ship-to-ship (STS) transfer operations and ship-to-dock (STD) berthing and mooring operations.
It’s features are safety and reliability. Fenders are constructed of several layers of strong tirecord and are thus resistant to pressure and cuttings. Additionally, no deterioration or variation in performance. Fenders utilize the compressive elasticity of air, therefore performance deterioration due to fatigue is absent, advantages at inclined berthing. Energy absorption does not decrease sharply at inclined compression in to 15 degree. Soft reaction force the reaction force does not increase sharply even under excess load conditions.
Headway’s Pneumatic Fenders
Kemamam Port is a major seaport located on the east cost of Malaysia. In recent times, Headway was approached by Kemaman Port with a request to supply pneumatic rubber fenders for Kemaman upcoming project. Headway successfully supply and customized the specification that requested by client. The size of fender is 3.3m (Dia) X 6.5m(L), the body type is P50, Pneumatic 50, type 1, type of net is Chain-Net with shackles, swivels, large towing rings, chains, rubber sleeves and used truck tyres. Furthermore, the initial internal pressure of the fender is 50kPa, the energy absorption at 60% is 1814kNm and the testing pressure is 250kPa. The specification standard is the fender body complied with ISO17357-1:2014 certification.
