Many factors determine the selection of the right hose or hose system. Our answer to these specific requirements are precisely fitting hoses and connection systems!
The requirement to transport or extract solid or gaseous substances safely and flexibly arises for many companies in the industrial environment. Often, the very specific installation situation determines whether a product or solution is or is not suitable. The materials used must also comply with applicable technical requirements as well with any other legal or other specifications. Our answer to these specific requirements are precisely fitting hoses and connection systems! In addition to standard and special hoses, we also offer customized solutions as well as hoses and hose systems with integrated life cycle tracking functions(AMPIUS®) as part of our engineering services. Learn more about our product and system solutions made of polyurethane, other specialty plastics and technically sophisticated fabrics.

Masterflex Exhibitions and Events
The hose manufacturer Masterflex regularly participates in trade fairs and appointments related to the topic of hoses in industrial applications.
For us, a hose is much more than "a flexible elongated hollow body with a mostly round cross-section." Hoses come in countless designs for versatile applications.
If you look at the structure of hoses, it quickly becomes clear that they all consist of three components: the core, the inserts and the cover. The core refers to the layer of material that lines the inside of the hose. This means that all pumped media come into contact with it exclusively. Inserts are the components that lie between the core and the cover. These can be fabrics or textiles made of various materials, steel wires, spirals. Their main purpose is to absorb negative or excess pressure. The cover encloses the hose and protects it from all external influences.
These hoses are manufactured by a special process (clip process). The fabric material, which is cut into strips, is clamped in an external steel spiral to form a tension-resistant spiral hose. There is no need for welding, gluing or sewing.
In this technique, pre-produced film or plastic fabrics are wound up in a helical shape and overlappingly welded. In this production step, additional spring steel wire or plastic support spirals are embedded in the hose cover or welded on from the outside.
Extruded spiral hoses have an external or cast-in support spiral (helix) made of spring steel or stainless steel wire. It is either installed directly in the hose or mounted as an external helix above the ceiling and serves to protect against mechanical influences.
In this area, we apply our special expertise in the processing of cast elastomers. We cast plastics in special molds designed specifically for this purpose - and thus produce special connecting parts and precisely fitting sleeves.
Absolute customer favorites!
They are the absolute customer favorites among the transport hoses: The Master-PUR Inline and Master-PUR Perfomance suction and transport hoses. They were developed for transporting extremely abrasive media and other problematic goods. They are manufactured without internal welds and corrugated valleys and are robust, efficient and economical.
A large proportion of the hoses used to extract and convey abrasive solids are made of the high-performance material polyurethane (PUR) . Thermoplastic polyurethane elastomers (TPU) combine a wide range of requirements with their level of properties, combining elasticity, resistance and aging resistance.
Polyethylene (PE) is characterized by its high resistance to acids, alkalis and chemicals. The material has a much higher chemical resistance than PU. Hoses made of polyethylene are therefore particularly suitable for demanding applications, e.g. for transporting aggressive gaseous and liquid media or for transporting fine-grained particles such as dusts and powders in the chemical sector.
