Colex International Protectaflex reaches over 1000 PSI in independent burst tests

Posted: Monday 10th March 2014

In recent independent tests Colex International had a section of Protectaflex with a 10mm NeuVend inner hose tested to its limits.

Due partly to the support from the closer fitting cover, the inner hose actually sustained pressures of up to 1000 PSI without issue, which is over 25% higher than the pressure rating of the inner hose. Only when pushed beyond 1000 PSI did the inner hose show signs of failure.

Even then, the hose still did not fail catastrophically and continued to run at 900 PSI without any sign of leakage between the layers.

As can be seen from the photo, although the hose had reached its fail point, it did not rupture and the cover remained intact.

Colex International Protectaflex is the next generation dual containment hose system, offering all the benefits of existing products but in a smaller, lighter, and more manageable format.

Due to its lighter weight, and reduced packaging, Protectaflex offers a significant reduction in shipping weight, therefore lowering your carbon footprint.
