To allow you to meet the strict legal requirements as a user of hoses, we only use fittings and hose material from manufacturers who can demonstrate the quality of their products in accordance with the regulations.
SAHLBERG has more than 100 years’ experience in hoses and fittings. It has supplied products to companies in the pharmaceutical, chemical and foodstuffs industries, for which specialist know-how is required. Benefit from our expertise and convince yourself of our comprehensive, all-round service for hoses: we advise, assemble, test, repair, certify and train.
Consulting and productionWhether standard or special designs with specific technical requirements, commercial and industrial customers will find the right solution in the SAHLBERG Fluid Center. In the initial procurement of hoses, our certified consultants for hoses and fittings perform risk assessments in accordance with the Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23 EC. For this purpose, they need information about the pressure, temperature, and the medium as well as the medium state - liquid or gaseous. When the risk potential has been determined, our staff provide a vendor-neutral recommendation of the best product for the required application according to price/performance criteria. This is followed by production of the hose line including a 3.1 inspection certificate in accordance with EN 10204:2005.
- Very good price/performance ratio through non-proprietary product selection.
- The hose is ready to use and the required documentation is included.
Production of assembliesWe have a wide range of products for technical components. We keep many components associated with hoses such as holding plates or mounting materials in stock so that complete systems can be supplied as assemblies.
Mobile test serviceFor many years, our professional staff, qualified in accordance with TRBS 1203, have successfully performed testing of hoses directly at customers’ sites. Equipped with a special service-van and an endoscope, our certified German Water Resources Act (Wasserhaushaltsgesetz, or WHG § 19) mobile testing service performs to the same high standards as in our own hose workshop. This includes the documentation of all work carried out by using a certificate in accordance with TRBS 1201. If a hose does not pass the test, it will be repaired or replaced on site and then a test certificate is issued again at the end.
- Free and professional risk assessment of hoses.
- An application technician determines the extent of testing.
- Safe and optimum implementation of the hose testing including documentation.
- Reliable reminder service
Reminder service for hose re-testingIn order to operate hoses safely even over many years, the German Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health (Betriebssicherheitsverordnung) stipulates regular hose re-testing. We support our customers in establishing and adhering to the re-testing period and can provide a computerized reminder service on request - Recall Service.
Training coursesIf as an operator or safety officer you are responsible for the risk assessment and testing of hoses, we recommend our training courses. In this way, we provide valuable insights into the current rules and regulations. You also get many useful tips and the opportunity to test the acquired knowledge with practical examples.
