Floating hoses are flexible, buoyant pipelines designed to transport slurry and sediments from a dredger to its disposal area. Armoured self-floating hoses are robust, buoyant pipelines equipped with additional armor layers for enhanced durability and protection against abrasion and external damage. Tapered Floating Hoses are mainly divided into A hoses and B hoses. They are generally used as the first dredging hose at the stern of the TSHD. Engineered for high durability and flexibility, these hoses are critical in dredging operations.
