COLORNO, Italy - July 25th, 2016 - Transfer Oil has always been committed to the highest quality standards as well as to the application of the internationally recognized practices in Quality Health Safety and Environmental issues. This commitment led Transfer Oil to obtain ISO9001 – ISO14001 and BS-OHSAS 18001 certifications as well as various hose type approvals.

The globally recognized WJTA-IMCA association has recently issued a colour coding scheme recommendation aimed at hose manufacturers and assemblers. The purpose of this recommendation is to help ensure on-the-job safety by making different hoses more easily identifiable on sight.

In short WJTA-IMCA recommends that the following colour scheme be adopted to easily identify hoses at their maximum working pressure.

The colour coding scheme appears in the Recommended Practices for the Use of High Pressure Waterjetting Equipment. These practices are used in the training of operators and new employees and is a recognized reference throughout US and around the world.

Transfer Oil UHP Helix hoses new production will adhere to this new international recommendations. The switch from the old versions in Turquoise colour, to the new colour coding, its ongoing depending on stock availability of the old and demand of the new.

Transfer Oil is confident that you will welcome this change.
