Crimping is for light duty, low pressure and small bore assemblies such as air hose that are used in garages and the pneumatics industry and gas hoses that are used in the general industry. Crimping ferrules are a quick and easy way of forming a metal sleeve over the fitting where you find the hose tail inside the hose. The ferrule acts as a protective sleeve over the hose tail and also ensures that the fitting is safely secured.
Winster can crimp up to 13mm. Tin ferrules by hand
Swaging is used for heavier duty hoses with a higher working pressure and large bore assemblies such as jetting hose that are used in the drain clearing industry. This procedure involves using a hydraulic swaging machine to swage the ferrules, where the ferrules are again used as a protective sleeve to the hose tail and ensures the fitting is safely secured.
Winster can swage up to 32mm. Hydraulic ferrules using a machine
Bandit Clamps are another form of ensuring that the fitting is safely secured in to the hose such as water suction hose that are used in the tanker industry and layflat delivery hose which are used in the pumping industry. Bandit Clamps, compared to swaging is a good cost effective way of fitting up hose assemblies.
Winster can clamp any size.
Hose assemblies can also be fitted up manually where clips or clamps are used to ensure the fitting is safely secured. These are mainly used for low pressure assemblies.
