At the Offshore Technology Conference this week, several hose providers were touting new and innovative designs. ERIKS North America highlighted its innovative, reliable, and cost-effective solutions for the offshore oil and gas industry, including its Flexion hydraulic hoses and Hose Maintenance Management program.
Flexion hydraulic hoses are proven to handle 50% more pressure than required by industry standards and to provide a superior bending radius over alternative hoses. In addition, they offer increased abrasion and ozone resistances that are 10 times better than industry standards.
Designed and manufactured to achieve increased levels of impulse life, exceeding the SAE standard requirements, these hoses 0ffer an increased level of flexibility during operation from their design and manufacturing process without any adverse effects on performance. When put to the test against the SAE, EN and ISO standards, Flexion provided 2.5-times the abrasion resistance and 5-times the ozone resistance through the quality of materials and
They are available in a variety of sizes and styles, including medium pressure, high pressure braided and ultra high pressure spiral designs.
In addition, attendees learned about ERIKS North America’s Hose Maintenance Management program, which has been documented to save customers a total of $9.7 million over three years. The unique program enables plants to improve operational productivity and safety, while reducing the total cost of ownership for hoses and related coupling products.
“ERIKS North America has served the offshore energy industry for decades in different capacities,” said Shawn Courtney, President and CEO of ERIKS North America. “As ERIKS North America has grown, so have our product offerings, as we strive to be complete problem solvers for our customers, providing them with reliable solutions and trusted services they need for the oil and gas industry’s most demanding applications.”
