Vetebrae bend restrictors (VBR) consist of a series of molded high strength polyurethane halves. Typically installed at the bell mouth opening, this equipment is used to protect the umbilical by limiting its bend radius. The VBR is designed to absorb any dynamic bending forces that could damage the umbilicals.
Hengtong Marine's VBR is designed for long term subsea deployment, withstanding the fatigue cycles up to project design life. Its locking radius and diameter can be tailored to client specification.
Locking Radius: Per client specification (Typical 10 times Umbilical OD).
Working life not less than 25 years.
Adjustable to client needs.
