Umbilical floats

BOE provides a range of floats to suit most control umbilicals. These floats comprise a pair of symmetrical half shells which are profiled to permit the line to flex within its specified bend radius.

 

Each float is manufactured using a low density composite foam core covered in a high performance impact and abrasion resistant polyethylene shell.

BOE’s umbilical floats are hinged using two stainless steel latches. The floats are designed to grip the umbilical by means of a natural rubber internal grommet.

Balmoral umbilical floats are designed to suit umbilical diameters ranging from 25mm-50mm OD. Umbilical floats can be supplied to suit larger diameter umbilicals if required.
