If we start with the three disadvantages of our hose types
They cannot withstand high pressures : hoses of 50 mm
diameter usually have a bursting pressure of approx. 7 bar; hose of 100
mm diameter usually a bursting pressure of 3,5 bar, but higher in the case
of some types.
Since most of our hose types are highly flexible, they
are usually less suited for vacuum.
But we do supply some types of hose for vacuum and these
have a very low bending radius.
The hoses are very stable and of high quality. However,
there are applications for which they are "too good" and, therefore,
too expensive because other grades are considered adequate.
And now the advantages of our hose types :
Very high stability with the most sparing use of materials
through composite technology.
Very high flexibility. The majority of types, also those
with a diameter of 1000 mm and more, can be wrapped around your wrist,
which just shows how flexible they are.
The majority of types are very highly compressible and,
therefore, very cheap to transport.
Furthermore, the composite technology makes the hoses very lightweight.
Delivery periods are unusually short. It is even possible
to manufacture hoses for very special applications within a few hours against
The variety of hose types enables you to find the cheapest
types for your application.
The variety and the compressed type data will make it difficult for you
initially to find what you want.
You can avoid these initial difficulties !
On page 29 you will find the most important questions
: photocopy this page and fax it to us with your answers.
However, if you would like to find out immediately how
to find your way around, then please proceed as follows :
Get your bearings initially in the Table A ( Applications
). This is where you will find the helpful type numbers for Column 1 of
Table T (Types) which correspond to approx. 70 applications.
Each line is devoted to one type of hose.
We have selected just 90 from our range, the ones most frequently required.
And now, to understand Table T, please read the following
explanations on the columns ( on page 25+26) where you will probably understand
everything - except Column 8 - the first time you read it.
Finally, you will find the list price for the particular
diameter which you require on page 18.
If you have any doubts, then please fax us the completed
questionnaire on page 29.
You can rely on us to advise you - and not just at the
