Trelleborg’s engineered products operation is now manufacturing a pre-bend rubber dredging hose in China. All of Trelleborg’s pre-bend rubber dredging hoses manufactured in China will be reinforced with armored rings; a design enhancement that significantly strengthens the hose, extending use-life by up to five times compared to similar products, according to Trelleborg. This design feature is currently exclusive to Trelleborg’s Chinese manufacturing operation.
The hose is based on an existing rubber dredging hose manufactured in Europe, but has been redesigned to incorporate armored rings and ceramic block that improve the hose’s longevity and reliability.
Capable of transporting tough materials such as caprock, coral or other edged materials, the pre-shaped rubber bend can be used in a range of suction and discharge applications in various diameters and radii, including dredging pumps for abrasive slurries and loading line gravel dredgers.
