HIHTL Descriptions

A Hose In Hose Transfer Line (HIHTL) is comprised of a primary hose within a secondary encasement hose. Primary and secondary hoses have a wide range of end connections and hose materials available. A wide selection of hose sizes are also available to meet specific pumping system requirements. Secondary encasements of up to 8-inch diameter are available. Heat trace and insulation are also available for freeze protection and/or to maintain process temperature.

End Fittings

RBTS can accommodate a wide range of fitting styles and pipe combinations. We have developed several zero clearance unions (Patents 6682102B1 & 6913291B1) for the encasement hose, allowing the connection of the primary hose in zero clearance and confined areas.
