Roadbed broom hose
With an internal diameter of 32 mm and a hardness of 70 +/- 5 shore, the hose made of natural rubber is suitable for the roadbed broom plough. The extruded version is highly abrasion-resistant and has a fabric pattern on the outside. The roadbed broom hose is supplied without an insert.Download data sheet roadbed broom hose
Hoses and moulded parts for cleaning the roadbed are wear parts and should meet the requirements for the train of machines. In addition to the roadbed broom hose, we offer the rubber star for the roadbed as a moulded part and rubber-encased steel hoses in the following dimensions: outer diameter 30 mm, length 300 mm. Please see the enclosed datasheet for the technical data.
The elastic pipe connection, which compensates for alignment differences up to max. +/- 2°, is made of steel with a galvanised surface. This elastic pipe connection is suitable for an operating pressure of 15 bar in a temperature range of -40 °C to +40 °C, for certain liquids also in higher ranges – see datasheet. The FlexMaster pipe connection is supplied in numerous lengths and diameters, as an elbow or straight pipe. Please submit your enquiry with technical data.

Hidden champion: Fire sleeve F88
Safety First – fire safety
The VIGOT fire sleeve type F88 has been the undisputed hidden champion among the VIGOT industrial engineering products for almost 50 years. This high-quality, in-house development remains convincing with outstanding fire protection properties.
MAXIMALL® hose systems offer a comprehensive selection of hoses according to DIN E N 45545-2, ISO 15440, DIN EN 50553. The hose systems conform to R22/23 HL3.
VIGOT offers the fire sleeves in the F88 SC version as extruded, silicone-coated hoses. This type is also available as F88 SC Flex, a hose with a flexible fabric construction – elastic – for long casings and as an open casing with various closure strips for subsequent installation. The coatings of the F88 SC fire protection sleeve are oil and solvent-resistant. They stand up to high mechanical stresses and exhibit good abrasion resistance. The fire sleeve has been fire protection tested and certified, among other things by Germanischer Llyod, and meets the provisions and requirements for railway engineering.
Further information about the fire sleeve is found on the separate VIGOT fire sleeve website:
