Ocean currents increase the chance of abrasion damage of supported lines within tubes. Centralisers allow any flexible or rigid line, or multiple lines, to be centered in an I-tube, J-tube, tunnel, or larger diameter pipe.
Centralisers prevent the supported line from touching the inside of the tube into which they are being pulled, preventing abrasion damage.
Centralisers are installed onto the cable or pipe prior to deployment and pulled in as one unit. Their low coefficient results in reduced installation loads when the line is being pulled in.
