„Polyurethane instead of rubber – for the sake of the environment!“ This is the motto under which FKM Walzentechnik is presenting its patented suction and pressure hoses at this year’s HTG Congress in Düsseldorf []. Representatives of authorities and industry experts will meet here to discuss the topic of hydraulic engineering.

The roller specialist manufactures smart hose technology for transporting abrasive media for sand and gravel extraction, for large-scale hydraulic engineering and tunnel construction. Dredging hoses made of polyurethane offer significant advantages over rubber hoses:

  • Low environmental impact due to minimal toxicity of the materials used – without plasticisers
  • High resistance to abrasion and erosion
  • Low particle input into water bodies – avoidance of microplastics
  • Significantly longer service life
  • Easy disposal
  • High resistance to environmental influences such as light irradiation, ozone or mussel infestation
  • Very short delivery times due to the location and process involved

In addition: FKM manufactures the hose in standard sizes and also in special sizes – entirely according to the needs of our customers. Further details on our hose technology can be found in our information brochure, which we will be happy to send you on request.
