Trelleborg designs and manufactures specialty hoses for materials handling for abrasion resistance, slurry, water and chemical applications.
Our speciality hand-built hoses are manufactured from high quality rubber compounds including NR, SBR, NBR, EPDM and silicone. Trelleborg designs and manufactures a variety of hoses, expansion joints and pre-formed hose bends for the mining industry including slurry hoses, suction hoses, discharge hoses, muff hoses and delivery hoses.
All hoses are designed and manufactured to suit specified applications; our custom built hoses takes into account the following factors:
- Wear resistance
- Product temperature
- Chemicals resistance
- Ore or material being transported
- Exposure factors such as UV and Ozone
- Flange arrangement
To achieve the required working pressures, Trelleborg mining hoses are constructed of woven cord materials such as rayon, polyester or aramid fibers and steel reinforcing components in the form of spiral wire or rings and flanges. These hand built hoses may also be ceramic lined. Trelleborg mining hoses are available with inside diameters up to 1200mm and working pressure of 1.4MPa.Trelleborg works closely with end users on hose audits and wear monitoring to ensure the most suitable hose is selected for the application and preventative / predictive maintenance systems developed. Additionally, wear indicators in our hoses are also available. These wear indicators alert operators when the mining hose wear material is worn to a pre-agreed percentage via a LCD or flashing light, negating the need for internal inspections or hose removals for inspection. Trelleborg mining hoses are supplied with integral or loose fitting flanges
