Guide to Manufacturing and Purchasing Hoses for Offshore Moorings (GMPHOM2009)

Although hose manufacturers may choose to continue to be guided by 4th edition until it is withdrawn in June 2012, this 5th edition reflects a major review and enhancement of the 4th edition for the purpose of providing technical recommendations and guidance to ensure the satisfactory performance of elastomer reinforced, smooth bore, oil suction and discharge hose commonly used at offshore moorings.

GMPHOM 2009 consolidates:

  • Guide to Purchasing, Manufacturing and Testing of Loading and Discharge Hoses for Offshore Moorings 4th Ed (Publ 1991)
  • SPM Hose System Design Commentary (Publ 1993)

The new or significantly changed topics that are included in this latest edition:

• The guidance for Reeling Hose Systems are addressed for the first time with particular attention being given to the potential for hoses being subjected to crush loading
• the Safe Working Loads guidance for hose lifting lugs have been re-assessed based on the weights of Double Carcass Hoses equipped with typical fittings
• the design specification for Double Carcass Hoses has been clarified, together with the guidance for leak detection
• acceptance tests include new guidance for material tests and the process for stiffness testing has been revised
• the circumstances that prompt prototype tests have been clarified and new tests addressing materials, torsion, tensile loading, crushing and lifting lugs have been introduced into the prototype test program. This program now also includes guidance for the dynamic testing of prototype
