Find the Best Suppliers of Chemical Hose in Louisiana

Chemical Hose in Louisiana

Louisiana is consistently one of the highest producers of petroleum throughout the United States. There is a large concentration of crude oil refineries and natural gas processing plants located in Louisiana that contribute to the incredible levels of production of these fuels and petrochemicals.
Reliable chemical hoses and fittings play an essential part in the continued production of petroleum, natural gas and petrochemicals. The heavy machinery used for these industries all rely heavily on different types of hoses in order to run efficiently. In the event that a chemical hose, (or other type of hose,) fails and needs to be replaced, it is imperative that a replacement hose can be purchased and delivered in a minimal time frame. Increased lead times result in lost production and reduced profits.
Finding a reliable supplier of hoses, fittings and couplings is essential to keeping your business running smoothly and minimizing downtime.

Large Inventory is Vital

A supplier with a large inventory of products will be able to efficiently service a wider variety of customers. The key to minimizing lead time is to have this inventory of products on hand and providing fast shipping options to get the products to customers more efficiently than ever before.
Dealing exclusively with large corporate suppliers with limited inventory is no longer the only option for customers in Louisiana. With the evolution of fast shipping methods, it is now possible for businesses in Louisiana to efficiently products from suppliers in Texas. This gives customers access to a larger variety of high quality products from a larger number of suppliers while also minimizing downtime.
The top suppliers will have a large inventory of different chemical hoses on hand including products with different levels of abrasion and chemical resistance to serve any unique requirements. These hoses can be made with different tube or cover materials. Tube materials may include XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene, UHMWPE (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene), EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) or Viton. Cover materials are predominantly EPDM to handle atmospheric exposure while protecting the hose against chemical residue of the application. Other types of chemical hose include what is referred to as "Composite Hose". Differing from your typical rubber hose construction of vulcanized tube, reinforcement and cover; composite hose is a multi layer construction of various films and fabrics with an inner and outer helix. The layers provide a light weight hose with a high degree of flexibility. Composite hoses can be up to 30% lighter and have 3-4 times the bend radius of conventional rubber hose.


Quality Products at Competitive Prices

Alternative sources of supply help to drive competition among suppliers, resulting in high quality products at very competitive prices. Large corporate suppliers were previously able to charge higher prices for hoses and couplings because they were the only game in town. This is no longer the case as customers can receive exceptional quality products at very competitive prices from a variety of suppliers. These innovative suppliers are stepping up to provide customers with larger inventories of products, competitive pricing and customer service that are not consistently available from local suppliers in the US.

Excellent Customer Service

Large corporate suppliers are not known for providing a high level of customer service. Despite these drawbacks, customers would be forced to purchase from local suppliers because there were not any other viable options.
With more suppliers available, it is now possible for customers to shop around to find a supplier that offers a higher level of customer service. The top hose suppliers are members of The Association for Hose and Accessories Distribution (NAHAD) and are focused on providing consistently exceptional products and customer service. This includes staffing industry professionals in order to better assist customers with any possible industrial hose and coupling need.
Discover a supplier with the largest inventory of products, highly competitive prices and unbeatable customer service the next time you require a chemical hose in Louisiana.
