PITTSBURGH, November 7, 2016 – Goodall® has announced the DuraCrimp® coupling system is now available with Thermoflex steam hose.

Lewis-Goetz, an ERIKS company, and its subsidiaries are the exclusive distributors of Goodall® products. Jeremy Lloyd, North American product manager for Lewis-Goetz, said that Goodall® steam hoses and the DuraCrimp® coupling system work together to minimize hose maintenance costs without sacrificing safety and durability.

“Steam is a critical application in the refining and petrochemical industries,” Lloyd said. “But working with steam can be costly and dangerous. Goodall® steam hoses are made with superior compounds, enabling them to last three times longer than average hoses and exceed a burst pressure test of more than 2600 PSI. Through Goodall® hose and crimping products, we’re able to provide a complete solution for steam applications, and we guarantee a safe, leak-free connection.”

The DuraCrimp® coupling system is an exclusive and innovative crimping system for the next generation of Goodall® steam hoses. Featuring a bolt-free connector, the DuraCrimp® coupling system eliminates steam leakage found with bolted clamps and failure risks associated with loose or warped bolts. The ergonomic system provides a permanent connection and long service life, while reducing installation time and preventing hose kinking.

Thermoflex steam hoses by Goodall® are specially developed for use in petrochemical and chemical refineries. Covered in smooth EPDM rubber, Thermoflex hoses offer excellent abrasion, weather, and ozone resistances, while high-tensile steel wire braided with brass-plated wire provides reinforcement and corrosion resistance.

The Goodall® factory in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada, is certified to couple all Goodall® steam hoses with DuraCrimp® fittings. Goodall® has built up a substantial inventory of ¾-inch x 50-foot Thermoflex assemblies with male-to-female, female-to-female, and male-to-female DuraCrimp® fittings installed in order to be prepared for the upcoming steam season.
