These fenders are best employed for berthing Submarines because they provide a better contact area vertically.
“IRM” Hydro-pneumatic Fenders are best employed for berthing Submarines. One of the most important criteria for using a Hydro-pneumatic fender is High Energy absorption Capacity and low reaction force, which is a vital factor for submarine applications. The Hydro-pneumatic fender provides a better contact area vertically, which cannot be achieved through any other fender system and hence makes it, the most ideal for submarine use.
- Performance can be adjusted by altering the air-water ratio
- Required draft can be adjusted
- Low hull pressures
- Self-adjustment during tidal variation
- Low installation and maintenance cost
