S-R’s tough hard suction hose features a custom-blended rubber lining that resists the most severe cutting and abrasive action. Spring steel helix wire with multiple synthetic textile reinforcement provides for full vacuum, kink resistance and vibration dampening.


Hard-wall (SDH) and soft-wall (SDS) stern discharge hose are designed to meet your needs. Hard-wall where bend radius is controlled, soft-wall where kinking is unavoidable.


Only the best … S-R’s unique construction includes use of nonwicking high tensile synthetic tire cord. Guarantees no-swell O.D. under pressure. No “ply ratings” … the number of plies stated is actual count.


Specifically designed to exacting specification for individual dragarm hopper dredges.

Custom Wall Thickness

Internal tube and supporting carcass wall thickness is determined based on the nature of specific compounds being handled, total hose diameter, and your service conditions. Salem-Republic’s engineers help make these determinations after getting a description of your hose working environment.[/dt_verticaltab_item][dt_verticaltab_item title=”Reinforcement Options”]

Reinforcement Options

Whether allowing for bends and turns in your process lines, or reinforced to prevent kinking, multi-ply synthetic fabrics and helically wound steel assure maximum tensile strength and ability to withstand movement and vibration in the hose made to your specifications.[/dt_verticaltab_item][dt_verticaltab_item title=”Custom Cover”]

Custom Cover

From wear-resistance to chemical resistance, your hose will be manufactured to meet your specific operating situation based on the nature of specific chemical compounds being handled, and your environment. If required for simple visual identification, hose can be provided with color-coded exterior. Color coding can also include stripes to customize identification tied to your plant safety requirements.
