Hoses have been widely used over many years for LPG transfer in dock-side applications. However, offshore transfer of LPG requires hoses to operate in demanding, dynamic environments. LPG hose construction for a given application depends upon the product being transferred and the operational parameters. In particular, refrigerated LPG has a different set of hose system transfer requirements to that of LPG at ambient temperatures.The design, manufacturing and prototype testing of LPG hoses for offshore applications have been witnessed, reviewed and approved by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). One or more standards may apply, depending upon the particular application.
