WHY CHOOSE COMPOSITE HOSE

WHAT IS A COMPOSITE HOSE?

Composite hoses are made from multiple layers of spirally wrapped thermoplastic fabrics and films held together by a metal inner and outer wire helix.

Product hoses form an integral part of transfer operations. The choice and use must be based on assessments that cover appropriate use, safety and operational efficiency.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE KEY BENEFITS:

  • Lightweight
  • Highly flexible
  • Multi-purpose
  • Safe
  • Robust
  • Long shelf life
  • Versatile in manufacture
  • Relatively inexpensive
  • Relatively quick to produce

WHY USE DANTEC:

Due to the unique stronger materials in Dantec hose, we can manufacture the hose with less layers of material, making the hose lighter and more flexible than our competitors. The stronger materials also give us a higher safety factor/burst pressure.

The materials we use for our composite hose also carry out many other benefits over the regular composite hose:

  • Cast polypropylene instead of BOPP – more flexible and less permeable
  • ECTFE instead PTFE – mechanically stronger and less permeable
  • Custom made PP fabric instead of generic packaging fabrics – technical and stronger design
  • Superior assembly and end tail pitch matching design – leads to superior end fitting retention
  • Dry Fit System – it is technically cleaner/environmentally friendly using a ferrule and seal
  • All hoses hand are built on our special coated mandrel – eliminates tears
  • In house branding tape – unique marking
  • COP Safe System – insulated hoses with sensors that work with all leading cross over prevention systems

 

We also have a can do, innovative, customer focused culture with 70% of our experienced operations team having between 10-30 years experience!
