2. FUNCTIONAL NORMATIVE REQUIREMENTS
2.1 Operative environment
The products described in this specification are meant for a marine operative
environment and are to meet the functional requirements specified below taking
into account this intended purpose. Materials and components which are not
subject to the specific functional requirements mentioned in this document or
specified in the normative references are in any case to be supplied by the

This document is CONFIDENTIAL and the sole property of AGIP. It shall neither be shown to third parties nor used for purposes other than those for which it has been sent.
Specific requirements for submarine hose
depth requirements
arrangement of the collars for the underwater floats, construction of the fittings
and of the underwater floats
striping of hose for the underwater installation
weight tolerances (in air and seawater)
marking.
In addition to and in order to detail the above general and specific normative
requirements, the following recommendations are to be taken into account.
Unless required otherwise, the standard diameters and lengths of the hoses stated
in the reference standards are to be considered and in particular those established in
1.2.3 d; the construction of non-standard hoses intended for special projects may
be specified separately through ad hoc requirements or Company specification.
The connection of the hose consisting of the nipple-flange assembly is to be
suitably treated so as to ensure maximum adhesion when vulcanised.
The flanges used can be ANSI B 16.5, 150 - 300 rating, either slip-on welded or
welded neck; slip-on welded flanges are advisable only for diameters of less than
twelve inches (300 mm).
Unless stated otherwise, the materials used for the construction of the nipples and
flanges are to be selected from those mentioned in the reference standard 1.2.3 d.
All flanges and nipples are to be hot galvanized.
The reinforcement of the hose, which is to be dipped in rubber, can consist of:
packs of metal cords
thicker packs of metal cords without metal spirals
two metal spirals of different sections
packs with additional reinforcement made of metal and textile cords
The reinforcement of the hose is to be smooth and capable of resisting abrasion,
ozone, oil products and seawater (chloroprene rubber). If not required otherwise,
all hoses are to have a smooth sub-surface layer in N.B.R. rubber capable of
resisting oil products.

The Contractor is to provide all necessary assistance during the guarantee period.
Moreover, all repairs and/or replacements needed to restore the efficiency and/or
reliability lost due to material defects or to fabrication defects, ruptures and/or
failures are to be carried out in as short a time as possible. Technical assistance
during assembly, installation and operational adjustments of the products may be
required.

assumed to be 76 m with the hose full of fluid with a specific gravity of 0.8
while immersed in seawater)
- electrical continuity or discontinuity
- construction and structural characteristics
- type of flanges to be used
- conditions for technical assistance during assembly and commissioning
