Mandals lay-flat hoses are “Flexible pipelines” made from TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane), and are increasingly replacing rigid piping as a more operational and cost-effective way of supplying water for the operation.
Provided the right quality hose is selected – both in terms of pressure rating, resistance and durability – this optimises high volume water transfer without any concerts of corrosion or most chemicals (check details with us prior to use).
The rapid and flexible deployment reduces cost by reducing downtime. The adaptability to the terrain, reduction of heavy transport and a more efficient work process also favours lay-flat hoses. This in turn results in a safer work environment, a greatly reduced risk of accidents and a more environmentally friendly expansion.
Lay-flat hoses are easily transported by light vehicles in areas with limited infrastructure. The longer hose lengths reduce the need for connections and manual labour. This reduces contaminating leakages and spills, as well as efficiency loss in the supply.
After use, the hose lengths may be easily cleaned, reeled up, and relocated to new sites, thus eliminating the costly dismantling and return transport of pipes.
Mandals ULTRAMAN 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.
