W.E. Couplings Ltd have been established since 1991, specialising in the supply of bespoke hose and fittings.
W.E. Couplings manufacture and stock a wide range of industrial rubber and PVC hose in long lengths,
which can be assembled to your individual requirements.
W.E. Couplings Ltd has developed the unique and sought-after ability to swage large bore industrial hoses. With both the bespoke machinery and practical experience of the men operating it, our UK factory is currently able to handle and externally swage bore sizes up to 24", and in the future we plan to expand on this.
In an offshore environment, after waste water has been fully treated and certified safe to be put back into the sea, it cannot just be discarded at deck level. A vertical hose string, sometimes reinforced with chain or secured to a leg of the rig, delivers the fluid straight down to the water's surface to cause the minimum amount of disturbance to any operations that may be going on, i.e. bunkering hose transfer.
