Secure couplings that won’t come off under pressure
Crusader Hose offers a wide selection of couplings to suit layflat hose. We also offer a range of fitting methods, which includes swaging, wire-whipping, bolt-on and bandit clamping to complete the hose assembly.
Our Fitting Department is proud of its installation procedures. It understands that the hose and couplings are critical components designed to work together as a precision-engineered integrated system.
We are specialists in providing the best fitting service for your requirements and take pride in our excellent workmanship. You can be confident that our securely-fitted couplings will always stay attached as required. We regularly test hose assemblies to ensure they won’t leak or blow off.
Swaging is now available by Crusader Hose
Swaging is not only a safe and secure attachment method for hydraulic hose, but a popular and cost-effective one for many of our high-pressure layflat hose. Our recent investment in machinery has given Crusader Hose the capability to swage couplings in-house. Swaging is available for hose diameters from 1” to 8” and is ideal for layflat hose.
Wire whipping-a technical and skilled method
Wire whipping is a mechanical hose-binding technique. Incorporating high-quality steel wire, the hose-binding machine maintains consistent wire tension as it wraps around the hose, securing the fitting. Wire whipping is not only secure but light-weight and gives the option of cutback and refitting the coupling if necessary.
Although it is strongly recommended that hose and fittings are assembled by the same manufacturer, we do fit customer supplied couplings. In these instances, testing the full assembly is a requirement. Testing certificates will be issued. Certification fees apply.
