OREANDA-NEWS. Continental is showcasing four “tried-and-true” industrial hose lines for the mining industry at MINExpo 2016.

The four mining hose lines are Mine Spray, Flextra Rock Dust, Brigade Mine and Spiraflex Dust. “These are hose lines that have withstood a variety of elements and conditions that are part of everyday business in the mining industry,” said Randy Kish, manager of distributor marketing for industrial hose and hydraulics. “These are some of our most popular mining hose lines.”

The hoses are specifically designed for mining industry applications. Mine Spray is a general underground hose used to control dust. It is also used on continuous mining machinery at the headface and on other mechanical machines. Brigade Mine is a flame-resistant hose used in underground mines for fire protection. Flextra Rock Dust is, as the name indicates, used for handling rock dust in underground mines. Spiraflex Rock Dust is a lightweight and flexible alternative to rubber hose primarily for underground coal mining.
