One of the many added values of thermoplastic hoses is the possibility to manufacture long and continuous lengths, thanks their unique manufacturing process that does not require the use of mandrels. This peculiarity goes along well with the growing demand for long lengths without joints in several applications, including but not limited to Oil & Gas, where it’s not uncommon to see also large bore hoses in long and continuous lengths exceeding 3.000 meters / 10,000 ft. Similar requirements are a growing trend also in other industrial business segments where, for example, in a recent project Transfer Oil delivered a tailor-made hose solution based on multiple 1+½” high pressure hose assemblies, produced in continuous length of 420 meters each. To meet this very specific demand and taking greater advantage of the characteristic manufacturing process of thermoplastic hoses, TransferOil has recently invested on oversize mobile hose winders. Used as an alternative to fixed stands, these huge winders can be set to host different reels sizes, up to 3 meters tall and 2 meters wide, setting the bar of length limitation to a very high level. As an example, one of these oversize reels can load over 7.000 meters of 1” hose, or over 70.000 meters of the more common ¼” size. Of course, we can also handle smaller reels for more ordinary requirements. Mobile hose winders can be easily moved around our production plant following the production flow combining versatility and efficiency in the long length and large bore production process. thermoplastichose hose hosesolution longlength hosemanufacturing plasticsindustry hoseproduction hosewinder hosereel oilandgas
