A hose and accessory testing service designed to test all industrial hoses and accessories available at Doornbos Equipment. This convenient and cost-effective service for maintaining and testing the integrity of hoses also has important implications in reducing personal risk, to injury from burst and leaking hoses, and potential contamination or pollution with subsequent costly compensation or clean-up operations caused by hose failure.
Doornbos Equipment’s experienced team are able to conduct a number of essential checks to detect any internal damage within a hose. The team carries out visual external inspections for obvious signs of wear and abrasion, and then check the internal conditions of each hose. This system checks for partial blockages, deposits, internal tears and pop-corning defects that would otherwise go undetected. The teams also pressure check hoses with compressed air or with water to one and a half times greater than the rated application, to detect any leaks. Once tests are completed, test results are provided which comply with todays stringent standards.
‘Our hose testing engineers are experts in their fields, with a minimum of 15 years of experience. This means they can thoroughly test all hoses and, if the customer requires, can also investigate the cause of hose problems and provide solutions to prevent recurrence. They can also replace hoses, implement regular maintenance and repeat testing programmes, taking much of the burden from our customers.’
Steve Buxton, UK Rental Manager
Doornbos always provide a first class service from the initial phone call until the delivery of the top of the range equipment.
Nothing is ever to much trouble, even if the call is out of hours.
The staff are all very friendly and polite but most of all their professionalism is beyond reproach.
Buxton Water have been using Doornbos for the past 15 years or so. They supply parts, rental units and from time-to-time service some of our own equipment. James' enviable level of technical knowledge is always available, along with the wider Doornbos team, who can offer solutions to any issues very quickly. I have nothing but the highest marks for the BEST customer service and the total commitment to keep our business moving.
Doornbos have offered their services to us for over a decade to date.
Throughout this time they have ensured that our vacuum tanker is up to the job, carrying out running repairs & servicing in a timely fashion and offering guidance to any queries put forward through recommendations from their highly skilled and experienced personnel. I would happily recommend them as a very professional company to any business.
