Hard Sleeve Testing

As fire fighters we know what it’s like to arrive on scene and not be able to get suction out of a hard sleeve. KLR takes pride in testing and inspecting every piece of hose no matter the material. Our hard sleeve testing is simple and effective.

Hard Sleeve testing includes:

  • Pulling the hard sleeve(s) from the truck
  • Visually noting any blemishes or damage
  • Checking the section for any collapsing of the liner by placing clear disks on each end during the testing
  • Vacuum testing each section
  • Finally, releasing the vacuum and visually inspecting the hard sleeve a second time
