Ensuring flexible hose assemblies are well maintained is essential to the productivity, reliability and safety of any operation. HoseCo’s Flexible Hose Management Programs assist in successfully delivering services taking a holistic approach and applying them to small scale packages right through to large facilities.
Design Consultation and Datasheet Development
Working with our clients to develop best practice specifications is one of the most effective ways to improve the performance of Flexible Hose Assemblies on facilities. Drawing upon our experience from around the globe we can assist in the design element of a project for a wide scope ranging from Hose Assemblies to Offtake Hoses, Bunkering Systems and beyond. Associated documentation can also be produced including GA Drawings, Datasheets, Policy Documents, Preventative Maintenance Plans and much more.
Audit and Inspection
All Flexible Hose Management Programs rely on the integrity of the available data. This can be ensured with regular auditing and inspection of Flexible Hoses onshore and offshore. HoseCo have inspection teams able to be mobilised anywhere, anytime.
Flexible Hose Assembly Register
Data compiled from audits and inspections is compiled and collated into a Flexible Hose Assembly Register. HoseCo manages this data and uses it to create alerts and schedule maintenance. This also acts as a reporting tool to demonstrate the effectiveness of the program. Access HoseCo Flexible Hose Assembly Registers online from any device anywhere.
Maintenance, Replacement and Recertification
Hose management programs drive the maintenance strategies of flexible hose assemblies. The programs take into account the criticality of the application, price, availability of replacements, service life of the assembly, and its suitability for refurbishment and or recertification.
Hose Management Programs assist clients with the overall compliance and traceability of their assets. Assigning unique identifiers and using labels, tags, barcodes and or RFID chips in a variety of materials HoseCo can ensure that every Flexible Hose Assembly on a facility can be
identified. Historical information on the Flexible Hose Assembly and the Material Document Register documentation can also be verified, referenced and stored.
HoseCo develops training tools and coordinates bespoke courses for clients. Delivered internally or externally, our programs ensure all levels of staff receive appropriate training, from awareness through to hands-on technical assembly.
Early Detection: identifying potential failures and taking preventative action reduces downtime, and mitigates safety and environmental risks.
Asset Integrity: maintaining asset integrity and compliance maximises the serviceable life span and reliability of hose assemblies.
Data Quality: reliable and accurate documentation enables traceability, ensuring correct maintenance and replacement schedules are adhered to.
