K Flex Hose
K-Flex Hand Built Engine Hoses
At our Newcastle branch not only to we have an internal and external sales team selling industrial hose and fluid power products, but we have a unique production facility that has become a specialist in its field of making by hand EPDM, nitrile or neoprene engine hoses.
Our brand is called K-Flex and being made in-house allows us to have total control of the production process from start to finish. All of the tooling required is made and stored in-house allowing us to be adaptable in being able to offer our customers a quick response time to any prototypes or orders placed. Our tooling including trimming fixtures maintains our high level of finished part accuracy, allowing us full control on new components from initial sample through to production implementation.
Our custom-made hoses are specifically made to meet your own design and specifications and are available in many shapes and sizes, with the ability to include inserts and branched legs in all material types. We are also able to produce hoses with built in brass inserts used for sensors, pressure and flow indicators.
Our manufacturing process and attention to detail allows any shape or complexity to be made. Each hose can be labelled or marked with your own references, date, part or order number allowing you full traceability.
- EPDM hoses are ideal for use with air or water coolant, the main application being specialist engine hoses.
- Hoses can be manufactured in nitrile (nbr) for applications where oil and fuel resistance are required and with internal springs when needed for oil suction.
- Neoprene (cr) hoses are generally used where hoses have a medium resistance to oil and fuel and have good ‘under bonnet’ properties.
