Rhinoflex Hose Construction
Rhinoflex hose construction is unique consisting of many spirally wrapped plies of thermoplastic fabrics and films held together by internal and external wire helices.
The fabrics and outer wire provide most of the longitudinal and radial strength of the hose and the films prevent the contents from escaping.
This type of hose is not vulcanised or bonded like rubber hose, the integrity of the hose is maintained by the tension of the interlocking inner and outer wire helices.
This method of construction makes the wall of the hose highly corrugated. This imparts a high degree of flexibility but also allows elongation under pressure to be quite high compared to most rubber hoses.
Rhinoflex hoses, compared to rubber hoses intended for similar applications, are generally much lighter and more flexible. This is the main advantage of Rhinoflex
hose, particularly where the hose is to be handled frequently e.g. road tanker, ship to shore and in Plant service.

Our hoses include oil hose, fuel hose, PTFE hose, tanker hoses, ships discharge or ship to shore hose, and highly robust chemical hoses.
Our flexible fuel hoses can be used for road tanker loading and offloading in plant applications where a robust flexible hose is required with a proven safety record.
Rhino lightweight fuel hoses or oil hoses are designed for suction and discharge of leaded & unleaded petrol, diesel, fuel oils, hydrocarbons with 100% aromatic content and Aviation spirit.
Rhinoflex hose construction is unique consisting of many spirally wrapped plies of thermoplastic fabrics and films. Rhinoflex hoses, compared to rubber hoses are generally much lighter and more flexible yet still providing robust chemical hoses for safe delivery. Here at Rhinoflex, we supply chemical hoses where the hose is to be handled frequently e.g. road tanker, ship to shore and in plant service
