Flotec's Rail Hose Management Programme offers

on-site condition hose reports, recommendations for product and installation improvements, and an on-site replacement hose fitment service.

The Flotec Rail Hose Management Programme sees the engineering team visit various track maintenance machines to examine and report on areas of concern, including:

  • Hose damage

  • Hose abrasion

  • Hose pressure

  • Incorrect routing

  • Excessive wear


Once the area of damage has been identified, Flotec will develop an effective engineering solution. This involves replacing the faulty hoses and correctly routing them to increase hose route efficiency, increase performance and prevent hose failures on essential performance parts.

Utilising the Gates MegaTuff, Flotec are able to provide a long-lasting solution to hose abrasion.


The innovative cover, made of a specialist hybrid compound, makes the hose not only exceptionally resistant to abrasion, but oil, ozone, UV rays, chemicals and weathering.

Once the programme is complete, fully trained site engineers issue reports on hose assemblies to offer a preventative, proactive service for the maintenance, repair and replacement of hoses, assemblies, oils and lubricants.

Flotec also provide further assistance in future planned maintenance activities in order to deliver a long-lasting host maintenance strategy. For example, Flotec offers fully pre-assembled hose kits for quick and easy installation. This, along with safe hydraulics training, provides a significant decrease in maintenance, repair and overhaul costs.
