Buckley Industrial

Buckley Industrial is a long established company servicing a range of customers in the Power Generation, Chemical, Food Processing, Paper and Petrochemical industries throughout the UK and Europe.

Buckley Industrial is a world leader in hose inspection and hose testing. An inspection and hose testing can largely reduce the risk of accidents, leakages, unexpected outages and environmental pollution, and companies are starting to take these aspects serious to reduce these risks.

The hose inspection procedures are;

Hydrostatic Testing- Their facilities are of the most advanced available. The custom build test rigs with sensitive computer tracking equipment give them the ability to detect micro leaks, and defects in flexible hose assemblies.

Visual Inspection-Allows them to pick up on mechanical and corrosive damage, or wear and tear which can occur during installation, use, and storage.

Internal Inspection-This test the internal structure, as a hose can pass both hydrostatic test, and visual inspection, but still have imperfections. This could lead to failure shortly after being test, so the hoses are inspected using a videoscope which will pick up the smallest of damages.

Vacuum Testing- A recently upgraded testing rig will test hose assemblies to a total vacuum state (-29.92 inches of Mercury).

They can supply a wide variety of Hose and Hose Connectors, including the following; Metallic Stainless Steel Braided Hose Assemblies, Hose Couplings, PTFE Convoluted & Smooth Bore Hose, Rubber Hose, PVC Hose, Composite Hose, and Hydraulic Hose.

At Buckley Industrial after supplying and testing hoses, they will manage the life of each individual hose, from the day it is issued to the day it is retired.
