Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) is one of the highest abrasion resistant materials available on the market today, much more so than NitrileRubber/PVC. This is what makes our 12” TPU lay flat hoses up to 5 times more durable than standard 10” NitrileRubber/PVC hoses.
Durability is not the only factor between the two, 12” hoses have a 44% increase in transfer capacity when compared to 10” hoses. With an increase in volume of this proportion, a 12“ hose has the capacity to outproduce a 10” hose by almost 2 weeks over the course of a month.
The large increases in transfer capacity, TPU’s much longer service-life, and the abrasive superiority and over all toughness are contributing factors in Mammoth’s 12” TPU lay flat hoses quickly becoming one of the most cost effective investment for water transfer in the oil and gas industry.
