Product Announcement from American BOA, Inc.

Braided Metal Hose Technology Solves Problem-Image

Problem: Oil Filtration Systems, Inc. (OFS) experienced premature failure on the welded connection for the discharge of oil from the tower to the pump on their filtration equipment.

Application: OFS of Boerne, Texas manufactures Filtration Systems for petroleum and many chemical product applications. The majority of OFS applications involve the removal of particulate and water from oils and fuels. When oils and fuels become contaminated, companies call OFS for solutions.

Solution: With the assistance of Crimp-Tite® authorized distributor, Austin Distributing, American BOA's patented Crimp-Tite® metal hose and fitting system became the product of choice for use in the discharge of oil from the tower to the pump. The Crimp-Tite® metal hose assembly has been found to be superior for dampening vibration. Vibration may cause premature hose failure due to a fracture in the welded attachment of the hose and fitting. No heat is applied in attaching the Crimp-Tite® hose and fitting. Annealed or embrittled metal is eliminated. A heavy-duty fitting is attached without heat and an elastomeric seal that dampens vibration provide a system for exceptional long-lived performance. OFS has received excellent performance as a result of these features.

Octaviano Mendoza, Manufacturing Supervisor for Oil Filtration Systems had these comments regarding the American BOA Crimp-Tite® metal hose and fitting system, "It is much quicker and more dependable than welding and very easy to install".

Try American BOA's Crimp-Tite® metal hose and fitting system for your metal hose applications and get longer-life out of your metal hose just like Oil Filtration Systems.
