Looking For a Standardised Solution to Preventing Hydraulic Hose Failures Across Your Site?

Hydraulic hose failures are synonymous with the mining industry – no doubt you have, or know someone who has, experienced one on site. With most mobile and fixed plant operations relying on hydraulic equipment, it is important that the risk of hydraulic hose failures is addressed with a simple standardised solution.

HoseMateTM is a purpose designed product affixed to hydraulic hoses to ensure hose separation, eliminate external abrasion, and prevent hydraulic hose failures. The patent-protected design allows two hoses of different widths to be positioned together, while maintaining a gap between them, and permitting 360-degree hose swivel. Our innovative hydraulic hose clamp is the only product manufactured from a specifically selected polyurethane material. This durable material is capable of withstanding the extreme conditions of mining operations – including heat, hydrolysis, and offers excellent abrasion resistance.

We have received promising feedback from a number of mine sites across Australia who have employed HoseMateTM. Notably, a site in Western Australia that applied HoseMateTM across their entire Loader fleet experienced a 66% reduction in hose failures. This feedback demonstrates the importance of using HoseMateTM as a standardised preventative solution across site – you too can also see a significant reduction in safety incidents across site.

Benefits of standardised preventative measures across site:

Consistent minimisation of risk

Using HoseMateTM on all hydraulic equipment across fixed and mobile plants ensures a uniform level of protection is provided. All hydraulic hoses are protected against external abrasion to the same extent. This high level of consistency minimises any risk of neglect or oversight on forgotten machines / equipment.

Ease of maintenance

Simplify your planned and unplanned hydraulic maintenance process with HoseMateTM. Traditionally, products like cable ties and spiral fixing have different operating expectancies – where products may cause secondary risks and fail at different rates.

Using the same product – HoseMateTM – across site, ensures familiarity of installation and upkeep. Employees will be training on how to use one product. This will instil a sense of confidence in maintenance crews, reducing the margin for mistakes, and streamline the maintenance schedule.


Optimise inventory management

Procurers and purchasers – listen up! Are you buying multiple different types of hydraulic clamp products? Simplify your planning and make the switch to HoseMateTM, the standardised solution – and only manage stock of one product.


Improve your sites environmental footprint with HoseMateTM. HoseMateTM is designed to extend the service life of hydraulic hoses. When employed across site, this can lead to a significant reduction in the frequency of hose replacements, and subsequent disposal of non-recyclable hydraulic hoses. This reduction in hose replacements means less waste generation and lower demand for raw materials.  

Not only does HoseMateTM improve the longevity of hydraulic hose operation, the purpose designed product reduces hydraulic hose failures. These failures often result in hydraulic fluid leaks which can be hazardous to surrounding ecosystems – and contaminate soil, fauna, and water sources.

These spills can be reduced by using the same product across site.

Reduced downtime

Ultimately one of the greatest concerns when managing a mining operation is productivity.

HoseMateTM is the only product solely dedicated to eliminating external abrasion and reducing hose failures. This prevention of hydraulic hose failures leads to significantly reduced downtime due to maintenance or hose replacements – translating directly into improved productivity and cost savings.


By adopting HoseMateTM as a standardised solution across site, companies can expect to see streamlined maintenance procedures, enhanced safeguarding against hose failures, and the opportunity to exemplify their commitment to safety.
