Tether Clamp

Tether Clamp

Tether Clamps are often used to keep a dynamic flexible pipe, umbilical or cable in a desired position. They are often used when fleixbles are in close proximity and help avoid clashing. The tether clamp is installed on the flexible and is then connected to a seabed anchor or gravity base using a tether system.

Tether Clamps are designed to withstand high differential axial loads on the flexible pipe, umbilical or cable, together with high tether loads to the anchor, while coping with all the usual challenges of clamping onto flexible structures.

Tether Clamps can also be supplied with bend protection such as bend restrictors and bellmouths.

The Tether Clamp incorporates a unique swivel design, which permits 360-degree rotation, thereby eliminating torsional loads on the flexible riser, umbilical, or cable.
