Hose & End Fittings

Supply options

Visiflon hose can either be supplied as made up and crimped hose assemblies, or as loose hose for customers to assemble themselves, using ferrules supplied by Aflex Hose, and either standard hydraulic end fittings or PTFE Tail end fittings.

Loose Hose: Visiflon hose can be supplied loose, in coils or on wooden reels if required, for Customers to assemble themselves.

For self-assembly, Customers must purchase not only the hose, but also the ferrules from Aflex Hose. If PTFE Tail design fittings are used, these must also be supplied by Aflex Hose, but Hydraulic Fittings are generally available.

Assembly must be carried out in accordance with the Assembly Instructions, and assemblers should be trained by Aflex Hose staff.

In such applications, stainless steel PTFE Tail end fittings should be used.
