Undisputed World Heavyweights…

CHECKMATE FLEXIBLE ENGINEERING NOW MANUFACTURE THE LARGEST PERISTALTIC HOSES IN THE WORLD WE HAVE recently invested in more infrastructure at our Wiltshire base to cope with the growing demand for peristaltic hoses. Peristaltic hoses are used to pump viscous ‘fragile’ liquids like mustard, yeast and printing ink which are ‘shear sensitive’ which means they can’t be sloshed about as in a normal centrifugal pump.

Peristaltic hoses are also commonly used in the water treatment industry. Did you know Checkmate Flexible Engineering manufacture the largest peristaltic hoses in the world? Weighing in at about 200 kg each these massive hoses are used for pumping fish! But probably most impressive of all is we have grown our market share for supplying peristaltic hoses in the North American market to 20%.
