Composite hoses for LPG and NH3 transfers

Composite hoses are used in gas (Propane/Butane) and liquid transfer systems where a combination of flexibility and strength is needed. They are frequently used in ship and barge onshore/offshore applications where misalignment of hose-ends is very common.

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.

  • Light weight units, easy handling (30% lighter than rubber hoses)
  • High resistance to tensile force and high pressure
  • Flexible design which compensates for misalignments and vibrations
  • Anti-static - double end-to-end continuity
  • Durable - resistant to wear and dragging with extremely secure end fittings
  • Fail-safe - multiple layered protective functionality to prevent leakage accidents
