GALVESTON – TEXAS TENDER
For the first time Gassó Equipments was awarded a tender for marine hoses in Galveston, Texas, the USA. 12u x 12″ and 9u x 10″ OIL SERVICE composite hose of 73′ length. Medium: Ethanol, MFO, MGO, NAPHTHA (PTFE lining) and VAPOR Recovery.
NEW CRIMPING MACHINE
The challenge was to manufacture, assemble, test and package 12″ composite hoses for the first time.
Our engineering department had to design and develop a new 12” mandril of 30 mtr length, 12” fittings and 12” gassoflex in record time.
In the meantime, our purchasing and technical department had to purchase and install a new 14” crimping machine.
Finally, we achieved it and shiped them in 15 weeks.
