Mining and construction in a large excavation with heavy machinery and construction equipment.


When carrying out excavations, ground and surface water frequently needs to be managed, whether it is pumped to a holding facility, silt collection system, or from an intermediate point on to the discharge area. Either way, the hoses transferring the water to the connecting the pieces of plant need to be tough enough to handle rough and sharp ground surfaces on the outside, high velocity water containing small abrasive particles on the inside, as well as other factors such as high and fluctuating operating pressures, and ‘industrial grade treatment’ when being moved around.

We tailor the products we offer based on the environment and application, and we also provide advice on the pro’s & con’s of each option so our customers are in a position to make an informed decision which option is best for them.

Rock Drilling

Rock drilling rigs are utilised for many applications – pretty much wherever numerous or large diameter holes are required in rock bearing ground such as support piles for buildings & structures, Geotech investigation, blasting holes in mines
& quarries etc.

A critical part of these rigs is the dust & particle extraction system which removes the rock cuttings from the hole and enables the efficient operation of the drill. The components of the extraction system are connected by large abrasion resistant hosing which United Flexible supplies to numerous drill operators around NZ. We stock a range of hoses purpose built for this application, and with quality and service life which is second to none. Talk to us for details on this range.

Dredging & Slurry

When creating, expanding, or cleaning out sediment buildup from bodies of water such as large ponds, underwater channels, ports, river mouths etc, dredge pumps and cutter suction dredges are often the go-to solution especially where it is out of reach of other methods.

The material dislodged by the dredge is sucked up and the slurry is usually pumped to the shore via special purpose slurry hoses. The requirements for slurry hoses vary depending on the equipment used and the application, and United Flexible works with our clients to determine the application specific requirements to ensure the hoses supplied are fit-for-purpose and will provide a long service life.
