The Slurryflex SB-Series Soft-Wall Mining Hose, like the SA-Series Hard-Wall Mining Hose, has an abrasion or chemical-resistant inner layer made from hard-wearing rubber and a protective outer layer which shields it from extreme weather, chemicals, and oils.

Unlike the SA-Series, this hose has a soft reinforcement layer instead of a rigid wire helix. This soft-wall construction gives the hose greater flexibility, while resisting internal pressure, and allows it to be moved more easily. Flexible rubber construction allows for rotation or movement on site, and minimises misalignment and vibration.

The SB-Series Soft-Wall Mining Hose is suitable for discharge applications only because of the soft wall construction.

Slurryflex hoses are the most flexible, longest lasting slurry hoses on the market, as shown by independent testing. Slurryflex Grade A rubber gives you long term resistance to abrasion, cutting, and tearing.

All of our mining hoses are custom made in Australia according to your specifications. We have the largest mining hose factory in Australia and use a hot vulcanisation process to produce a robust, premium hose. Talk to us about your requirements and we’ll help you choose the right hose for the job.
