Wellman Bore Hose Specifications & Materials

Hose Construction
Mandals Wellman Hose is manufactured in Norway using “through the weave” technology, where the thermoplastic polyether based polyurethane (TPU) lining and cover are formed in a single extrusion process to provide a tough composite riser with excellent wear and tear properties.


The textile reinforcement is designed to support the weight of the submersible pump, the column of water, the power cable and the riser itself, with a minimum 2:1 safety factor. Additionally, torque on pump start-up is accommodated without damage to the riser. The pre-attached and strong loops allow for easy attachment of the power cables for the submersible pump.


Quality Control
Mandals Wellman hoses are manufactured to the highest standards and quality control procedures and are warranted to be free from defects in workmanship and materials.


AISI 316 Stainless Steel Couplings
The potable water approved Wellman couplings are especially developed by Mandals to ensure easy installation and secure operation in the long term. They can be reused as needed and help ensure that the hose is coupled properly every time.
2”/51mm - WHC51
3”/76mm - WHC76
4”/102mm - WHC102
