Maclan Corporation, a custom manufacturer of high quality polyurethane and rubber products, has been providing problem solving solutions to the phosphate industry since 1975. With their expertise manufacturing rubber products, Maclan offers custom flexible suction and discharge hoses.
"We were challenged with piping that became misaligned over time," said one customer. "We needed a product that could adapt to flexing and vibration, with connections that eliminated the misalignment." These are common obstacles facing customers, that are overcome by using Maclan’s flexible suction and discharge hoses.
Rubber is used for suction and discharge hoses because of two main engineering properties: it resists oil and various other corrosive chemicals as well as being extremely abrasive resistant. The combination of steel wire with a polyester cord and rubber wear tubes provides strength and durability even in the harshest conditions. A key benefit of Maclan's custom hoses is the flexibility, which allows it to be easily fitted to existing equipment. Flexible suction and discharge hoses are the solution when rigid piping becomes misaligned overtime or terrain is uneven.
"Offering a wide range of options gives our customers solutions that save them time and money," according to company spokesperson Maegan Wallace. Maclan manufactures flex hoses with a variety of construction types, end types and flange configuration. Hose can be built with neoprene, SBR, natural rubber or butyl wear tube, polyester tire cord, high tensile spring steel wire, and weather-resistant EPDM, SBR or neoprene cover. End types include rubber-lined or unlined steel nipples, built in both fixed and rotating flanges and soft or plain ends. Maclan offers lengths up to 25 feet, hose diameters from two to 36 inches and PSI ratings of 150 and 300.
"Our customers also appreciate our quick turnaround time," Wallace added. Maclan delivers reliable solutions, hand made to meet customer's demands.
