The Slurryflex SC-Series Specialty Pre-Formed Bend Mining Hose is custom manufactured to your specified angle and bend radius. It can be used to achieve a tighter bend radius than a straight length of SA-Series Hard-Wall Mining Hose.

The SC-Series mining hose consists of three layers. An inner layer of hard rubber that’s resistant to abrasion or chemicals. A middle layer containing wire reinforcement, which stops the hose from being sucked flat in vacuum applications, and synthetic fabric, to contain internal pressure. Lastly, an outer cover layer that protects the hose from the elements.

Flexible rubber construction minimises misalignment and vibration while allowing for rotation and movement. Made from Slurryflex Grade A rubber for long lasting wear resistance, every Slurryflex hose is custom made in Australia. Talk to us about your requirements and we’ll design and build a hose according to your specifications.
