High-pressure industrial applications are placing more stress on layflat hoses. Whether jetting water in oil fracking or hydraulic mining through a hose, flow friction reduces pressure and leads to lower productivity. Loose-fitting layflat hose couplers and bends are a major cause of friction. The friction leads to a loss in pressure and flow velocity. The move towards layflat hose specifications and safety standards is allowing more field operations to get the fit right.

If you run a warehouse, you are likely quite familiar with the skids or pallets that your inventory is stored or shipped upon. Some of these pallets might arrive pre-wrapped in plastic when they are shipped to you from a vendor, and then the plastic is quickly removed so you can access the items.
