Truco hose solves problems and creates opportunities A commitment to meeting changing demands in the mining industry has resulted in Truco (Transvaal Rubber Company) releasing a new range of PVC hoses, additions to its range of small bore rubber mining hose, as well as a new range of air/water colour hoses. The range of reinforced PVC hose is available in two colours, transparent opaque and blue. The hoses are available in sizes from 3 mm to 25 mm ID, with other sizes available on request. Depending on the hose size, working pressure ranges from 4 bar to 9 bar. Burst pressure is a minimum of 2.5 times working pressure. Typical applications include air and water, sanitary, food and fuels. The hoses are non-toxic, non-marking, corrosion-resistant and have a temperature range of -10°C to +65°C.
