The WG code is engraved onto one of the securing bands at one end of the hose. The expiry date is then engraved on the second band at the same end. This gives a quick visual guide to the age of the hose. Expiry dates are 12 months from the time of a new hose being issued. We also use other methods of identification including tags and colour coding ties.
All hoses which are assembled in WG's hose workshop are tested using air pressure or water pressure techniques.
WG also offer an online certification system whereby a customer is given access to a database of all the hoses which are tested to their vehicles. A unique username and password are allocated so that our clients can access information concerning a pipe on a certain tank or a land based application. This gives our customer the confidence that compliance procedures are in place, so can pass that confidence onto their clients.
