Composite hose are made from quality materials. The inner films and fabrics provide optimum chemical resistance. Protected with the PVC impregnated outer covers, composite hoses provide the strength and versatility for all petrol and chemical applications.
Composite Hoses are designed to meet the most demanding transfer applications such as:
Composite hoses are reinforced offering strength, light weight, flexibility and versatility for variations in pressure,
temperature and product conveyance compatibility. Composite Hose meets various Australian & International Standards and is available in sizes from 25mm – 250mm.
Transfer for road and rail tanker loading and discharging, storage tank and in-plant use
Conveyants – petrol, diesel, kerosene, black oils, tallow and heavy lubricating products
Ship-to-shore and ship-to-ship transfers, dockside and general shipboard use.
All hoses can be supplied with rope lagging. It is necessary to specify at time of ordering. Polypropylene rope is used as lagging. Lagging insulates and protects the hose from abrasion and heat transfer.
Due to the often hazardous conveyance used it is recommended that composite hose should only be used with properly fixed fittings. Composite hoses are normally fitted by the wire whipped method or by external crimp. All hoses have a 6 to 1 safety factor.
All hose assemblies must be pressure tested hydrostatically to one and a half times the maximum recommended working pressure and electrically tested to confirm continuity per:
– AS2683, AS2594, AS1180, AS2117
– BSEN13765:2010, BS5842:1980
– EN13766:2010, EN ISO 8031:2009, EN ISO 1402
A wide range of fittings can be supplied such as Camlocks, Screwed fittings, flanges etc.
Material fittings – Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Custom.
