Hoses and Fittings

At Pacific Hoseflex we’re the experts in all kinds of hoses and fittings for fluid transfer applications, including bitumen transfer. We understand how vital it is to purchase the right bitumen transfer hoses and fittings to ensure seamless operations and compliance with industry standards. 

To help you make the right decision, here are 5 questions you should always ask before investing in bitumen transfer products – outlining the innovative solutions at Pacific Hoseflex. 

  • Do the products comply with Australian standards? 

One of the most important questions to ask is whether the bitumen transfer products adhere to all relevant Australian Standards. At Pacific Hoseflex, we offer hoses and fittings that comply with the Australian Standard (AS) 2475, specifically focusing on “Threaded hose connection fittings for bituminous materials.” 

This commitment to compliance ensures that the products meet stringent industry regulations, guaranteeing safety and reliability in bitumen transfer operations.

  • Does your supplier have a diverse product range? 

To cater to all your needs, your supplier must offer a diverse product range that caters to a wide range of applications. 

Pacific Hoseflex offers a diverse product range tailored for bitumen transfer. This includes our VITALFLEX® Bitumen Hose, known for its convoluted and interlocked hose assemblies. 

Our range also includes a variety of fittings designed to cater to specific needs, such as Bitumen Dust Caps, Bitumen Glands, Bitumen Dust Plugs, Bitumen Fixed Couplings, Bitumen Bronze Ferrules, Bitumen Aluminium Swivel Nuts, Bitumen Swivel Nuts, Bitumen Locking Cone Internal Threads, and Bitumen Locking Cone External Threads.

  • Do you assemble hoses in-house? 

Hose assembly is just as critical as the product itself and where assembly takes place is important. At Pacific Hoseflex, we take a hands-on approach, assembling bitumen transfer hoses in-house, enabling us to demonstrate exceptional attention to detail and customise your hoses based on your specific requirements. 

Our in-house assembly is complemented by our Asset Hose Management System, which allows you to schedule annual cleaning and re-test reminders, enhancing the longevity and performance of your bitumen transfer products.

  • What about annual maintenance and testing?

Bitumen transfer products have to stand up in demanding conditions, highlighting the importance of regular maintenance and testing. Pacific Hoseflex simplifies this aspect by offering integration into our Hose Management System

This system serves as a proactive tool, sending timely reminders for annual cleaning and re-testing. This approach not only ensures compliance with safety standards but also enhances the overall reliability of the bitumen transfer system.

  • Are your hoses durable? 

To avoid failure and costly downtime, it’s important to ensure the functionality of the bitumen transfer products you are using. At Pacific Hoseflex, we prioritise longevity by employing high-quality materials and precise engineering. 

From Bitumen Dust Caps to Bitumen Swivel Nuts, each component is designed to withstand the challenges posed by bituminous materials. This emphasis on material durability ensures that the products not only meet but exceed the expectations of professionals in the bitumen transfer industry.
