The Offshore Mussel Float is a robust and durable polyethylene float that has been developed for mussel farming operations in high energy offshore environments. Its modular construction and simple operation design features make it the ideal choice of float for the offshore mussel farmer when used in vertical axis systems.
The PE floats are made from robust and durable High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), which is ideal for the demanding conditions found in offshore aquaculture. Featuring two unique injection moulded end-caps, the floats are manufactured using specialist butt fusion process and control techniques.
The injection moulded end-caps have a consistent wall thickness throughout with additional structural support in the headline connection area.
180 x 250l floats can be transported with a standard 40ft Articulated Lorry
Pressure injection moulded-end cap ensures strong rope connection points and consistent 12mm wall thickness
Advanced butt fusion process and control techniques used in manufacture
Machined PE pin design for fastener arrangement for securing floats to mussel lines
Machined HDPE end-cap pin secures the rope to the top of the float
