R&D / Quality Management


Factory Acceptance Tests

Trelleborg Oil & Marine hoses are submitted to extensive Factory Acceptance Test Program according to international recognized standards (API Spec 17K; G.M.P.H.O.M. 2009) and specific project requirements.
Each hose is released by Quality Department only if it demonstrated his ability to withstand this Factory Acceptance “Torture” session.
Standard factory acceptance tests include Visual inspection, Hydrostatic test, Adhesion test, bending test, vacuum test… and we can also propose specific tests like tension and kerozene.
Customers or their representatives are welcome to attend these test sequences and witness the quality level of Trelleborg Oil & Marine Hoses.

Do you know?

outer cover

Outer Cover

The outer cover of our hoses is made with synthetic rubber. This rubber is specially formulated to be un-sensitive and highly resistant to UV rays from the sunlight, high temperatures like exposure to the flair radiation, seawater and the aggresions like abrasions during the operations. The rubber is made in our factory, his quality and performance insure a perfect protection of the hoses during the many years of service. Protection againt abrasion can be increased with an additional PolyUrethane (PU) layer.
tube vs fluids

Tube vs Fluids

The material selection for the inner liner of a hose is crucial. The typical function of a liner is to be compatible with the conveyed fluid, ensure the lowest possible permeation rate, exhibiting best mechanical properties and compatibility with operating temperature !
Crude oil, LPG, pure sulfuric acid, ammonia, seawater, each application is specific and requires a particular inner liner.
Finally, rubbers compound are not equal, when a compound is selected TRELLEBORG deploys in house expertise in rubber formulation to provide the best suitable compromise ensuring highest levels of quality.
