FLEXITEX

Agriculture: Mandals Flexitex Standard is a general purpose hose for use in agricultural systems.
Also suitable for irrigation. Mandals Flexitex Extra is more reinforced fluid transfer hose for agricultural systems, but it may also serve as drag hose in umbilical system, or for irrigation.

​Lighter hoses are used as supply hoses for irrigation and as feeder hoses for slurry systems.
Our hoses are resistant to most industrial and agricultural.

Oil & Gas: Mandals Flexitex Extra is intended for more demanding fluid transfer, f. ex. for drill water supply to onshore rigs, as a feeder hose for larger irrigation and slurry units in the agricultural sector or as a general transfer hose for non-flammable liquids in construction, mining and industry. It is easy to store and deploy/retrieve, adapts well to the terrain and can be routed around obstacles. The design ensures minimum stretching and a very high pressure rating to wall thickness ratio. The rubber blend has excellent chemical resistance and little or no reaction to H2S or saline content. Lengths up to 200 meters means less couplings and less pressure drop.

Mandals AS offers hoses especially designed for use with umbilical drag hose systems. This ensure environmentally friendly and safe manure distribution, and also prevent hard-packing of the soil.
