Mandals hoses can be utilised in many processes in the conventional oil & gas sector, whether onshore or offshore.
Conductive hose are suitable as fire hoses in certain environments. They may also be used for transporting flammable liquids in case of oil spills, or simply for transporting fuel.
Lay-flat hoses help make exploration drilling in remote areas both lighter and easier, due to light weight, transportability and ease of deployment.
Not to mention the fact that possible damage can be cut off in order to recouple the hose and continue the operation with minimum downtime.
Lay-flat hoses are even used as oil spill lenses and flotation devices. In case of old leaking pipelines a Lay-flat lining may be the best solution to fix the pipe, instead of having to exchange the entire pipeline or build a completely new one.
Mandals ULTRA is made from extruded thermoplastic polyesther based polyurethane (TPU) with excellent wear & tear properties. The reinforcement is made from circular woven filament polyester yarn. The “extrusion through the weave” production method gives a very strong bonding between cover and lining as well as firmly encapsulating the woven polyester.
