Application: Offshore winches and single fall cranes n Main Hoist n Whip line n Winch Line

HydraPlus, the next generation of precision engineered multistand ropes deliver exceptional low rotation performance
and provide the highest strength to diameter ratio within the
Hydra range.

Maximum strength to diameter ratio


Tailored lubrication
Low rotation
Reduced elongation
Superior crush resistance
Long service life
Y

L
UA I T

Ideal for the large capacity multi-layer winching


arrangements typical to sophisticated offshore heavy-lift
cranes and subsea deployment winches, the robust Dyform
construction provides high radial stiffness and superior crush
resistance.

Benefits:

High Performance Ropes

SURE

Excellent multi-layer spooling characteristics and resistance


to crushing are essential for reliable rope performance in
these applications where load is applied directly to the reeled
rope on its storage winch which can create considerable
radial forces, crushing the underlying lower layers.
The right rope lubrication is vital to reliable performance,
thats why we tailor the lubrication applied in the manufacture
of our Hydra range to deliver optimum lubrication over a
wide range of operating temperatures including elevated
temperatures typical to heave compensation systems.
High performance offshore heavy-lift and subsea
deployment ropes from Bridon, a brand proven in the most
demanding global Oil & Gas applications.

High Performance Ropes

Benefits:

The Big Hydra is the original deepwater deployment rope


for Single-layer offshore deployment winches and offers an
optimised strength to weight ratio.

Tailored lubrication
Low rotation

L
UA I T

Long service life

Increasing deployment depths mean that the impact of


suspended rope weight can severely reduce available
winch capacity. The Big Hydra provides excellent strength
to weight ratio to maximise winch capacity for single layer
traction winch applications including pipelay abandonment
& recovery equipment.

Optimised strength to weight ratio

SURE

The right rope lubrication is vital to reliable performance,


thats why we tailored the lubrication used in the
manufacture of our Hydrarange to deliver optimum
lubrication over a wide range of operating temperatures
including elevated temperatures typical to heave
compensation systems.
Premium quality low-rotation, multi-strand ropes for
demanding Oil & Gas applications, Bridon the benchmark
for reliability.

Application: Exploration Drilling Rigs n Marine Riser Tensioner Lines

Superior abrasion & wear resistance


Crush resistant
Corrosion protected IWRC
Even load distribution
Reduced internal friction
Accurate diameter tolerance
Increased bend fatigue
Improved torsional stability
Enhanced strength to diameter ratio

Dyform rope construction reduces sheave wear


and point loading which combined with the superior
dynamic structural stability provided by the Bristar
core delivers exceptional performance and sets the
standard for marine riser tensioner applications.

L
UA I T

The constant cycling of marine riser tensioner ropes


over sheaves demands that ropes used for this
application are flexible and highly-resistant to
bend fatigue.

Benefits:
