This hose is made from extruded thermoplastic polyether based polyurethane (TPU) with excellent wear & tear properties. The reinforcement is made from circular woven filament polyester yarn. The "extrusion through-the-weave" production method gives a very strong bonding between cover and lining as well as firmly encapsulating the woven polyester.
The hose has high resistance against commonly used chemicals and has excellent resistance to UV radiation, hydrolysis and fungus degradation. The abrasion resistance of the TPU is one of the highest available, making the hose ideal for use in the extremely abrasive environment in open pit mines. The outer cover has been designed with extra thickness in order to add wear & tear material. This extends the useful lifespan of the hose.
Extra abrasion resistance for rugged terrain and extreme conditions
Resistant to oil and chemicals
The circular woven filament polyester reinforcement ensures very high tensile strength and facilitates easy towing with tractors without risk of damage. The interlocking weave prevents the hose from lengthwise extension when pulled or pressurized. This avoids delamination of cover or lining from the woven reinforcement and minimizes "snaking" and twisting.
This hose can operate in a temperature range from -58 F deg to +167 F deg and can withstand intermittent use up to +176 F deg.
Standard lengths up to 660ft (200 meters). Longer lengths available on request.
Smooth surfaces for easy wash down
