DGDG-EU service line bend stiffeners:

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

Bend stiffeners can be present at the interface between flexible and rigid structures.

Bend stiffeners are designed to be flexible, add localised stiffness and to protect the service line minimum bend radius (MBR), preventing fatigue, buckling or over bending.

Bend stiffeners are designed to meet defined tension and angle combinations and are specified as either dynamic or static.

Polyurethane bend stiffeners are near neutral buoyancy.

Bend stiffeners comply with API 17J.
