Complete hose assemblies are mounted with special fittings and crimped with ferrules. It is also important to ensure electrical continuity of the hose assembly when the fittings are mounted. The most typical fittings:
- flange fittings e.g. DIN (EN) PN16, fixed and swivel;
- CAMLOCK type fittings (type C or E);
- BSP male thread fittings;
The fittings are made of carbon steel, 316 and 304 stainless steel, aluminium, bronze, polyethylene. ECTFE-coated stainless steel fittings are used when highly aggressive chemicals are conveyed (ECTFE – fluoropolymer similar to PTFE).
The composite hose assemblies are frequently equipped with various couplings: TW (so called tankwagen couplings), CAMLOCK couplings, rail couplings, dry disconnect couplings and emergency couplings (breakaway).
Always confirm your choice of composite hose assemblies with Tubes International!
The composite hose assemblies intended for loading/unloading operations are produced according to the requirements of Transportation Technical Supervision and supplied with quality certificates.
