Hose Making & Pressure Testing

We can make up a range of hydraulic and pneumatic hoses to suit most applications.

Hose Making

Dedicated hose making facility

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

Using the right components for hose assemblies is vital, because fit, performance and material selection significantly affect operational reliability. That's why we've teamed up with Hydroscand and invested in a dedicated hose making facility, complete with hose cutter and swaging machine, to make up a new hose assembly 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.

Using their knowledge and experience our dedicated team are able to provide advice if necessary, so you don’t leave without a solution.

Hoses

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.
