Air Gun

Air Gun

Traditional method off attaching bolted clamps primarily used on air and steam hose. This method gives increased torque compared to hand held tooling. It offers the customer the ability to cut back and re-end assemblies but can be susceptible to loosening through vibration and operator tampering.

BAND-IT

BAND-IT

BAND-IT® are the World leaders in quality engineered band clamping systems.

BAND-IT® is a specialist manufacturer of a wide array of predominantly stainless steel clamping I.D. systems that are in use worldwide, in virtually every industrial segment.

It provides a superior vibration resistant clamping system that is tamperproof. The smooth construction provides uniform, gap-free inside diameter to prevent leaks. The portable tools are available to allow for onsite coupling requirements.

Small Swager

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 the external ferrule affecting a very secure and tamper proof attachment.

This method enables us to offer a much stronger and therefore safer method of attachment that traditional clamp methods. It also aids site safety and manual handling, by having a nearly smooth swage ring/ ferrule, rather than bulky clamps.

Recent investment at Arco Hose means that we can now externally swage rubber, PVC and composite hose from 6mm to 203mm (8”) in diameter. This process enables us to offer a much stronger and therefore safer, method of attachment when securing products such as Bauer or Leverlock couplings into hard walled rubber suction hoses.

This ultimately means the assembly is capable of higher working pressures, and catastrophic coupling failure is significantly reduced when compared to traditional methods such as stainless steel straps or bolted clamps. It also aids site safety and manual handling, by having a nearly smooth swage ring, rather than bulky clamps.

Internal Swager

Internal Swager

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.

Testing

Testing

Pressure testing is our guarantee that the hose assembly has complete integrity and will be safe to use in its intended application. At Arco Hose we have a range of fixed and portable hydrostatic testing equipment that enable us to proof pressure test in accordance with ISO 1402.

Our state of the art digital pressure test cabinet enables hoses to be taken to pressure very quickly and safely, maintaining efficiency and ensuring the assembly experiences no loss in pressure.
