FreeFlex Hoses

The FreeFlex hose combines Manuli’s marine hose experience with the lessons and technology gained through designing and manufacturing collapsible and kinkable long length hoses for military and offshore oil applications. FreeFlex hoses can be crushed and kinked without damaging the hose. Once the load on the hose has been removed FreeFlex returns to its original shape with no permanent deformation.
