Composite hose

Product description

Composite hoses are the fail-safe add-ons to rubber hoses, providing a minimal risk of leakage due to its wire bound multiple layers encapsulating all spillage in between the layers, leaving the outside intact. They provide flexibility when it comes to installation, usage, durability and temperature endurance and are especially designed for fully refrigerated conveyance on ships, barges and marine terminals.
