Split barge cylinders
Manufacturing in compliance with all major standards
In a Split Barge the hull of the whole barge splits longitudinally consisting of two major parts (port and starboard halves). Both are mostly symmetrical in design and are hinged together at the deck and operated by hydraulic cylinders.
When the vessel splits the load is dumped rapidly, which means the barge has to be very stable in order not to capsize or otherwise get damaged as the load is released.
Our experience with high capacity, harsh environment, and dependable cylinders makes us ideal for supplying systems for split barge functions. We are able to design system components for maximum submersible durability and corrosion resistance while using redundant seals internally to ensure a long and dependable service life.
