Rubber fenders are divided into many types, including cylindrical rubber fenders, semi-circular (D-type) rubber fenders, DO-type rubber fenders, DA-type rubber fenders, drum-type rubber fenders, etc., each rubber fender Each has its own different characteristics, advantages and scope of application. I will introduce it to us below.
1) Cylindrical rubber fender:
Features Low reaction force, small surface pressure, reasonable energy absorption; strong adaptability to the rolling and pitching of the ship when berthing is not affected by the size of the ship, widely used and easy to repair equipment, especially suitable for old-fashioned docks.
2) DA type rubber fender:
Features It has the characteristics of high energy absorption and low reaction force; the product has higher stress dispersion and long service life; the front end is equipped with a guard plate to reduce the surface pressure; standard complete equipment methods are various; replacement is convenient.
3) Semi-circular (D-type) rubber fender:
Features Moderate reaction force, higher energy absorption than cylindrical type; easier operation of the equipment; because of the small width of the bottom, it is especially suitable for the application of frame type wharf and ship side equipment.
4) Drum rubber fender:
Low characteristic reaction force and large energy absorption; surface pressure below 25 tons/m2; small decrease in mechanical properties of tilt compression; ∏ type rubber fender: low characteristic reaction force and large energy absorption; convenient equipment; generally suitable for large and medium-sized wharfs .
5) DO type rubber fender:
Features Reaction energy absorption is higher than D-type fenders; Equipment strength and service life are greatly improved compared to D-type fenders; Suitable for framed wharfs.
Arch type (V type) rubber fender: Features Moderate reaction force, high energy absorption; strong equipment, convenient; suitable for all kinds of wharfs.
