Hoses materials

The PT series is designed to make hose changes quick and easy with no technical knowledge required. We only work with high quality compounded rubbers, reinforced with 2 to 6 individual layers of braided polyamide and with an outer layer made to strict tolerances to ensure perfect compression. The characteristics of Tapflo hoses enable them to last approximately 30% longer than other hoses on the market. They also fit the majority of other hose pumps.

For the hose inner layers, 8 materials are available to suit the diversity of the pumped fluids.
