Hose Assembly and Testing
Hose assembly services include the capability to crimp up to 10″ flexible industrial and 2″ 10,000 psi well intervention hoses. Utilising German-built Uniflex crimping machines which are both PLC controlled and date logged.
Abdex has the only Parker Black Eagle certified workshop in Asia Pacific, with the ability to assemble and test this family of products from stock.
In addition to this, we are also approved to assemble and supply the Gates Black Gold range of oilfield products, including BOP and cementing assemblies. We have facilities for hose bundling (umbilicals) and Hydraulic Flying Leads (HFLs). Providing a range of hoses compliant with API17E or ISO13628-5. And ensuring DNV-GL-approved hose assemblies for the marine and oil gas industries.
Testing and Flushing
Pressure testing and certification is a key element of what we do. Whether it’s a graphed data-logged test certificate from our NATA accredited high pressure test rig or a DNV witnessed test, we can perform the most demanding test requirements.
These hose assemblies are NATA approved up to 5000 bar, with hydrostatic testing. We can test with medical-grade air where cleanliness is important, such as in Air Breathing or Pharmaceutical assemblies.
For offshore and subsea applications we can also flush to a cleanliness level as outlined in NAS 1638 or ISO 4406.
Abdex can inspect and recertify hoses according to manufacturer’s guidelines and recommendations. This can include External Inspection and repairs. As well as Internal Borescope Inspection.
