Truco Launches Shot Blast Hose Leading South African rubber specialist, Truco, has announced the launch of its sand and shot blast hose. The hose has been added to the company's extensive product range in response to customer demand. According to Shaun Whiteside, Manager of the Small Bore Hose Division, Truco, the hose is durable, reliable and has been manufactured with extended operation in mind. "The hose features a 6 mm abrasion resistant NR/SBR liner. It is also reinforced with high tensile synthetic cords and has a UV and abrasion-resistant cover." The use of multiple piles of reinforcing in its manufacture ensures that the shot blast hose does not collapse or kink while bending during operation. The hose features the standard 32mm internal and 48mm external diameter of shot blasting equipment and offers a safe working pressure of 1000 kPa with a 3:1 safety factor. The hose is available ex-stock in 15 or 30 m rolls and is supplied fitted or unfitted. The hoses are also branded with the Truco name to assist with traceability.
