External Swaging

This process involves compressing an external swage ferrule into the outer cover of the hose, thereby trapping the hose between the internal hose-tail and external ferrule effecting a very secure and tamper-proof attachment.

Using the same principles as hydraulic swaging, Arco Hose have developed specific swage ferrules that are suitable for softer walled industrial rubber hose, ensuring the ultimate in coupling security without the fear of damage to the hose or fitting.

Arco Hose have the facility to swage both hard and soft wall rubber hoses from 6mm ID through to 305mm (12") nominal bore, with a full range of hose fittings.

Internal Swaging

Internal swaging differs in that an internal 'dolly' is forced through the internal bore of the hose, expanding a specially designed hose tail-piece and forcing it into the rubber liner of the hose.

This process produces a perfectly smooth bore, with no internal restrictions making it the perfect method for hygiene critical applications, abrasive media, delicate products and applications where optimum flow and integrity are paramount e.g. offshore applications. Arco Hose can offer this service on selected hose and fittings from 25mm (1") to 305mm (12") nominal bore.
