The flexible pipe can be attached to power by securing the polyurethane straps through the hose loops. Flexibore loops are implemented at 1 meter intervals to allow secure power attachment. The polyurethane strap should wrap around the power cable securely.
Crusader Hose recommends a minimum 2% allowance for extension and swell characteristics of the hose. The extra slack in the power cable attachment compensates for the stretch of the hose due to the weight of the pump.
Generally, the extension will not exceed 2% but is important to secure the power cable attachment correctly to the flexible riser. To learn more about polyurethane strap attachment ask the Flexibore specialists, ask Crusader Hose.
Heavy duty cable ties are an alternative to polyurethane straps. For warranty to be valid, it is essential only approved electrical cables are attached.
Heavy duty cables must be doubled for each loop along the length of the flexible hose. To attach the ties, pull them up tightly to ensure the power cable cannot slide through. Extra power cable should be added to compensate for the flexibility in the hose.
Flexibore is suitable for a variety of ground water pumping applications and is simple to install and retrieve. The flexible riser is manufactured from high tenancy polyester and polyurethane to ease the difficulties of bore water retrieval.
