Reducers and Y Pieces

Reducers and Y Pieces

Reducers and Y pieces enable terminals to load and off-load from a wide range of tankers. They are self-supporting within the hose string.

The Reducer and Y pieces are designed to split the flow of oil from a single larger diameter hose to two smaller ones. Floating concentric reducers are used to reduce a large diameter mainline to a smaller diameter tail line.

The metalwork is fabricated to industry guidelines and then closed-cell polyethylene foam buoyance is added with a protective polyurethane elastomer skin.
