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 4 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.
A wide range of fittings can be supplied such as Camlocks, BSP fittings, flanges etc.
Plasticoat composite hoses are made from quality materials. Their inner films and fabrics provide optimum chemical resistance. Protected with the PVC impregnated outer covers, Plasticoat composite hoses provide the strength and versatility for all petrol and chemical applications.
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.
