On Wednesday 9th July, Masterflex-UK sent Hayley, their newest team member, to the Great Yorkshire Show in Harrogate.
Hayley was tasked with the job of finding out what type of flexible hose and ductings are currently used within the agricultural industry. She visited the show with her pen in her hand looking for answers.
The show grounds were huge, showing the best Horses, Cattle and Sheep from all over the country and competitions were being held throughout the day to judge the best home-made cheese and pies.
Interacting with various manufacturers, distributors and end users allowed research to be carried out on products already being used within this industry.
It is clear to see that the agricultural industry is certainly using many different types of flexible hoses, including:
- Polyurethane hoses and PVC hoses on various types of seeders.
- PVC Ductings and TPE Ductings on grain dryers.
- Heavy Duty PVC hose on slurry tanks and many more.
Further research is now needed to see whether parts are imported from the UK or abroad so its back to the office for Hayley.
Masterflex continues to meet customers needs by providing a high quality of customer service, quick turn around time and large product range.
