Save Money on Concrete Hose Accessories

Concrete hoses

Concrete and plaster pumping equipment and hoses especially, get a lot of wear and tear over the course of many jobs. Replacing hoses can be expensive and is not always necessary. Did you know that you can have your used hoses repaired for a fraction of the price of a new one? This goes beyond the usual servicing, because needed parts are actually replaced and tested.

United Equipment Sales can save you money on your existing concrete equipment by having us do any of the following repairs:

 Install a new weld-on end (metal ring part) to convert your regular hose to a heavy duty hose out of it. We fill the grove with steel so it takes longer to wear it through. They come in different sizes from 5” to 1 1/2 “ to fit all your needs. There are different types: heavy-Duty, Metric, Grooved, Male/Female. Each one is machined on computer-controlled equipment from quality carbon steels.

Install a new clamp and snap couplings
Grooved, heavy-duty & metric, both non-adjustable and some adjustable sizes. All of our clamps have been redesigned with very “user-friendly” handles and come with gaskets and safety pins. They are also all steel construction (not ductile iron), for added strength and gold colored zinc coating or painted green.

Install a ferrule (metal end) When have a bad end, we cut off the hose behind the original ferule and replace it with a new stem and internally expand it into the ferule (which grabs the hose on both sides so that it can’t back up).   We can use a heavy duty or a threaded end. If you need an adaptor, we also manufacture our own with threaded end, with coupling. Size vary from 2 “ to 1 ½”.

Slabjacking accessories

You can also replace different sizes of shotcrete nozzles for shotcreting tunnels and swimming pools. They come in 2 sizes: 1 ½” to 2 ½” nozzles with tips. They can get really worn out after many jobs.

NOTE: a clean out ball should always be used after every job to make sure that you get 99,9% of the cement out of the hose. This will extend the life of your hose and equipment.

The good news is that we ship anywhere in the world. Most of the cases we can turn around your order in less than 3 days depending on the amount the work needed. Accessories can be shipped the same day.
