SPIR STAR® has many years of experience in the manufacture of hose assemblies used in high-pressure water-blast applications. This know-how is used specifically for the development and production of hose assemblies.
For water-blasting SPIR STAR® recommends thermoplastic high-pressure hoses reinforced with spiralized high-tensile steel and also offers water-blast hoses with a maximum working pressure of up to 3,200 bar (safety factor of 2.5:1).
- Multiple applications of water-blasting hoses
Hose assemblies made by SPIR STAR® are used e.g. for sewer cleaning, pipe cleaning and cleaning of shell and tube heat exchangers, water-jet cutting, concrete refurbishment as well as for surface cleaning of any kind. For these complex and demanding tasks, its product range provides a wide selection of hose types and special hose fittings.
- Long service life – The water-blast hose DuraLlife Flex®
The approved and tested DuraLife Flex® high-tech hose is the ideal hose to use in pipe cleaning applications. Its special manufacturing process greatly reduces abrasion of the cover, thus increasing the service life of the hose assembly.
- Ultra–High–Pressure – The water-blast hose for maximum pressure
The hose types of the UHP®-Series (Ultra-High-Pressure) are used up to 3,200 bar. High-pressure combined with a maximum flow rate ensures a fast and optimum cleaning result.
- Matching fittings – Designed specifically for water-blasting hoses
The OnePiece Fittings® and the Blast-Pro® fitting series were specifically developed for use in small-ID tubes which can e.g. be found in heat exchangers. Compared to standard fittings, these fittings are considerably shorter, which makes tube cleaning with bends easier. Another advantage is the fact that the crimping of the sleeve only negligibly enlarges the hose OD. As a result, hose types with a larger inner diameter permitting higher volumetric flow can be used.
