Guidance Note 101 - Revised Jan 2015
24 November 2015
Re-ending of High Pressure Hoses Used in Water Jetting Applications
It has been common practice in the high pressure water jetting industry to re-end high pressure hoses when a hose has sustained locally generated damage to its outer casing or threaded connections. In the 2008 Edition of The WJA Code of Practice it was stated that re-ending was a "necessary, normal and essential procedure for jetting hoses" and was allowable under certain named circumstances.
However, to comply with the latest British Standards it has become necessary to revise that guidance and this has been done in the latest 2012 Edition of the WJA Code of Practice. This note clarifies that guidance and states the Water Jetting Association (WJA) position on the subject.
