Hose Making & Pressure Testing

As the official Hydrascand distributor in Scotland, DH Marine can supply a wide range of hydraulic and pneumatic hose and couplings to suit most applications.

Hose Making

Getting customers back up and running again when things go wrong has always been a priority at DH Marine.

That's why we've teamed up with Hydroscand and invested in a dedicated hose making section, complete with hose cutter and swaging machine, which means that in many cases we can make up a new hose whilst you wait!

If it's out of normal hours and you need a hose in a hurry, you can contact our 24/7 emergency on call engineers and they will normally respond within 2 hours to get you out of a fix.


We stock hoses for use in a wide variety of applications and industries, including:

  • shipping, fishing vessels and pleasure boats
  • cranes and other lifting equipment
  • construction and demolition mobile plant
  • materials handling
  • agriculture
  • commercial vehicles
  • industrial process plant

Couplings & Fittings

We have set up a dedicated stores that contains couplings, adaptors, plugs, valves, clamps, clips, 'O' rings and Dowty washers for a variety of systems, including:

  • BSP
  • UNF
  • ORFS
  • DKLO
  • DKSO
  • SKL
  • SKS
  • Banjo

Hose Testing

Along with our hose making capabilities we have invested in a pressure testing machine. It can test up to 43,000 psi (3,000 Bar) and can be used to test a range of fluid carrying components, including hoses, pipes, valves, cylinders and couplings. The max. component size is 1590mm x 795mm x370mm and there is no restriction on hose length.

The machine uses a water/oil emulsion to generate the pressure, and a digital control system allows for a variety of test parameters to be set, with a test certificate produced as evidence for assurance purposes.
