High Quality Armoured Hoses for Onshore & Offshore Drilling Activities

Armoured hose (armored hose) is a kind of rubber hoses covered with a layer of armor. Thanks to the protection of the armor, it has higher strength and better abrasion resistance. According to the armor material, armoured hoses are divided into polymer armoured hoses, stainless steel armoured hoses and braided stainless steel armoured hoses.

Many polymer armoured hoses are placed on the ground.

Armoured hoses are widely used in the drilling industry to connect a variety of drilling devices. Next, we'd like to introduce some armoured hoses commonly used in the drilling industry.

Armoured BOP Hose

It is used to connect the blowout preventer and various valves for controlling the well pressure. Our armoured BOP hoses are produced in accordance with APT 16D standards and can withstand minimum 1300 °F (+700 °C) flame temperature at working pressure for 5 minutes without failure.

Many polymer armoured BOP hoses are placed on the ground.

Armoured Choke and Kill Hose

It is essential to control the well control equipment. Choke hose is used to direct drilling fluids from the annulus to the choke manifold and kill hose connects the mud pump and the well high pressure pipeline. Drilling fluids can be pumped into the well through the pipeline to control a threatened blowout.

An armoured choke and kill hose is placed on the ground.
