DGDG service line bend restrictors - limiters

Service line bend restrictors are used during installation and service to prevent the over-bending of flexible flow-lines, umbilicals and cables.

Bend restrictors are designed to be flexible but lock at a bend radius greater than that of the service line, providing protection to the line from buckling or over bending.

Bend restrictors are designed to a specified bending moment.

Bend restrictors are usually present at the interface between flexible and rigid structures.

Half elements are fitted together with corrosion resistant fasteners.

Polyurethane bend restrictors are near neutral buoyancy.

Bend Restrictors comply with API 17J.
