Think Layflat Hose

Many benefits of Crusader Hose layflat
for Mine Dewatering

Compactly Stored

Takes less than 1/10 of the space compared to poly pipe.

Rapid Deployment

You can deploy up to 4km in 2 days.

Easy Transport

One truck can fit 3500m of 300mm layflat hose vs 10 trucks for poly pipe.

No Welding - Continuous lengths of up to 200m

No welding workforce or machinery required. No joins required along the pipeline.

Flexibility to adapt to terrain

Continuous Layflat hose can be taken up high pit walls. Polypipe is too dangerous to handle high pit walls.


Layflay hose is easily reused on another part of the mine unlike poly, which is expensive or impossible to redeploy.

Low Environmental Impact

Transporting truckloads of poly creates more pollution than a single truck with layflat hose.

Swells Under Pressure

Swelling increases pumping volumes thereby reducing energy requirements.

Tough & Robust

Trucks can drive over Layflat hose. You can’t do that with rigid pipe.
