REIFF delivers abrasion-proof hose lines to casting house

European Distributors of Industrial Supplies

One of REIFF Technical Products’ customers is a casting house that manufactures its products via sand casting. The casting house needs highly abrasion-proof hose lines in order to prepare and carry the sand as regenerated sand is led to the mixers by hoses. The hoses which were used before did not last more than 4–6 months and needed to be replaced regularly. Each replacement of the 30 m hoses lasts 7 hours, each replacement recommends 10 workers and 2 lifting platforms.

REIFF helped to massively reduce the holding times by recommending and selling a special hose line, consisting of hose, gasket and flange, that perfectly fits the customers needs: Conti®Ultimate. This hose line has a very high quality in combination with a comparatively low price and massively reduces the amount of expensive replacements.
