Precision machined hoses

Bredel machined hoses are optimized for perfect performance

Maximize production uptime, minimize cost of ownership

Bredel hose pumps safely handle abrasive sludge, paste and slurries at 100% volumetric accuracy. Viscous fluids with up to 80% solids in suspension can be pumped with ease.

The fluid is fully contained within the hose, meaning no moving parts come into contact with the fluid to be pumped. This makes the hose the single most important component in the pump. Only precision machined hoses, manufactured to exacting standards, can provide accurate flow rates, long-life and 24 hour reliability.

At Bredel we are one of the only pump companies to manufacture our own high-performance hoses, specifically for use with our hose pumps, using the highest quality compounded rubbers, reinforced with layers of braided nylon.

Bredel machined hoses are optimised for perfect performance

precision machined hose construction

Bredel hoses are unmatched in quality and ensure maximum performance from our pumps. The benefits of a genuine, precision machined Bredel hose will always outweigh an alternative hose from any other manufacturer:

  • Lower Total Cost of Ownership through reduced downtime
  • Consistent flow rates over the life of the hose, even with varying viscosities and temperatures
  • Fewer hose and lubricant changes compared to using non-machined hoses
  • Lower spare parts inventory through single component change
  • Using original spares protects the pump warranty

The correct hose for your application

Bredel hoses are manufactured in a range of high quality materials to provide maximum chemical compatibility and outstanding resistance to abrasives for a wide a range of applications.

The machined hose is the single most vital component for the performance, durability, and efficiency of the hose pump

Hose construction

The essential component of high-performance hose pumps is a hose that is constructed of layers of rubber reinforced by winding several layers of nylon cords. The inner and outer layers are extruded. The inner layer is available in a range of rubber compounds. After the hose is constructed, it is then machined. Machining is the final step in hose manufacture and is critical to insure that exact tolerances are held.

Innovation

As the global leader in hose pumps, we pride ourselves on new ideas and innovative products that bring the benefits of hose pumps to our customers in an ever expanding range of applications. For example, retractable pressing shoes bring ultimate clean-in-place capability.

Design

Using tools like finite element analysis (FEA), we design our hoses to perfection – right down to the position of the reinforcing layers, angles and thickness of the cord reinforcement, and the thickness of the rubber. Everything from the geometry of the pressing shoe to the pump housing is engineered to optimize the performance of the hose.

Production

Unique in the world, Bredel’s state-ofthe-art automated hose grinding facility machines every hose within fine tolerances – guaranteeing proper compression for efficiency and longevity. At our ISO9001:2000 factory, each pump and hose is constructed to the most rigorous quality controls standards.

Specially formulated hose lubricant

No hose pump can function without lubricant. Genuine hose lubricant from Bredel has been specially formulated to minimize friction between the pressing shoe and the smooth surface of our machined hoses. Lower running temperatures means more production uptime. Bredel lubricant is also safe for use in the food industry.
