Fluted Water Hose
An extremely strong and durable water hose solution that is particularly popular hose for use on agricultural land and construction sites. Its toughened exterior prevents the tube from kinking when in use, increases grip and withstands abrasion without compromising on flexibility.
Formulated from a PVC nitrile compound, our fluted water hose is manufactured with a three layer polyester reinforced construction. It is then heat and chemically bonded to create a highly resilient water hose that is equipped with exterior longitudinal fluting to prevent kinking when in use.
Thanks to these qualities and other benefits such as abrasion resistance and flexibility, it’s a practical option for agricultural and construction site usage. We can also manufacture the same hose with a smooth exterior should it be desired.
- Flexible and kink resistant.
- Durable and strong.
- Abrasion and UV resistant.
- Suitable for outdoor usage.
- REACH, RoHS and BSI ISO 9001 compliant.
Our fluted water hoses come in a range of diameters and are usually supplied in lengths of 40 metres and 100 metres in a standard black colour. However, we are able to produce custom orders according to client requirements.
If you need alternative coil lengths or colour options, please get in touch with our sales team and they will be happy to assist you.
The fluted water hose is suitable for conveying water in a number of applications. It has proven to be particularly popular for agricultural use and construction purposes.
|Part No.||OD||ID||Working Pressure||Burst Pressure 4:1 Factor|
|AFW/12||3/4″||1/2″||135 P.S.I||550 P.S.I|
|AFW/34||1″||3/4″||80 P.S.I||320 P.S.I|
|AFW/1||15/16″||1″||60 P.S.I||240 P.S.I|
The working pressures quoted are based on the short-term burst pressures calculated at 20°C using a 4:1 safety factor.
The maximum recommended working temperature is 45°C.
Working pressures will be affected at temperatures above 20°C and the bend radius and flexibility will be affected below -25°C.
