Goodall has announced the DuraCrimp® coupling system is now available with Thermoflex steam hoses. Lewis-Goetz, an ERIKS company, and its subsidiaries are the exclusive distributors of Goodall® products. Jeremy Lloyd, North American product manager for Lewis-Goetz, said that Goodall steam hoses and the DuraCrimp coupling system work together to minimize hose maintenance costs without sacrificing safety and durability.
The DuraCrimp coupling system is an exclusive and innovative crimping system for the next generation of Goodall steam hoses. Featuring a bolt-free connector, the DuraCrimp coupling system eliminates steam leakage found with bolted clamps and failure risks associated with loose or warped bolts. The ergonomic system provides a permanent connection and long service life, while reducing installation time and preventing hose kinking.
Thermoflex steam hoses by Goodall are specially developed for use in petrochemical and chemical refineries. Covered in smooth EPDM rubber, Thermoflex hoses offer excellent abrasion, weather, and ozone resistances, while high-tensile steel wire braided with brass-plated wire provides reinforcement and corrosion resistance.
