Flat-fold sleeves are strong, durable and compact hoses for the transportation of liquids, suspensions, gases and bulk products. They are used in the construction, agriculture, chemical, oil and gas and food industries. Although these hoses are inferior in strength to many other products of this group of RTI hoses, the demand for them is always high, as flat-twist hoses take up a minimum of space and weigh little, but have an impressive inner diameter.
Such hoses are in great demand in mobile systems, such as fire-fighting, transportation and fueling equipment or utility vehicles with water pumps. The hose becomes flat in the transportation position and is rolled up into a compact coil. Manufacturers produce hoses of different diameters and designs, so it is easy to choose the right product for a particular application.
