A revolutionary turning point in rescue tool technology making your procedures safer, quicker and easier.
CORE™ Technology: Safer, Easier & Quicker
WHAT IS CORE TECHNOLOGY?
CORE or COaxial Rescue Equipment Technology refers to the way hydraulic oil is directed from the pump to the tool and vice versa. A traditional dual hose (twin line) system consists of separate pressure and return hoses connecting pump and rescue tool. A CORE system consists of only one hose: a high pressure inner hose surrounded and protected by a low pressure outer hose. What makes this coaxial hose design possible is our patented CORE coupler. This coupler has a built-in, automatic return valve that eliminates the need for a dump valve on the pump. Switch tools any time: Simply connect the hose and you’re ready to go!
WHY CORE TECHNOLOGY?
CORE Technology is a revolutionary turning point in rescue tool technology. More than just a new tool, hose or pump it is a new hydraulic system that fundamentally changes the extrication process. When lives are at stake, it’s all about speed and safety. Compared to working with a traditional system, working with CORE is safer, quicker & easier. Once you try CORE Technology and discover its unprecedented benefits, you will not want to go back to a traditional system.
ONE-HOSE SYSTEM (HOSE IN HOSE), PROTECTED POWER
High Pressure Hose inside and protected by low pressure hose
One step auto-lock coupler: Couples and locks in just one push; Two step uncoupling system: Accidental uncoupling impossible during rescue operation
Holmatro tests every individual hose according to all appropriate safety norms
ACCORDING TO INTERNATIONAL SAFETY NORMS
4:1 safety ratio for both pressure and return lines and Tested by independent bodies according to EN 13204 and NFPA 1936 (certificates available)
PARA-ARAMID FIBER REINFORCED HOSE (NO STEEL)
No risk of kinking or pinholes, like with traditional steel reinforced hoses
QUICKER & EASIER
CHANGE TOOLS UNDER FLOW
Quickly Change tools any time without operating a release valve on the pump while being efficient by saving precious manpower
UNIQUE PATENTED CORE COUPLERS mounted directly on the tools (NO pigtail hoses!)
No hose entanglement due to the 360 degree rotating couplers on both the tool and pump and no swinging pigtail hoses when carrying the tool
SIMPLE SET UP
Connect CORE hose to pump or tool with or without pump running
COUPLING AND UNCOUPLING WITH ONE HAND
Uniquely designed with special rips on both hose ends, you can connect & disconnect a tool with one hand while standing
PARA-ARAMID REINFORCED HOSE
Uniquely designed to not kink, the hose is lightweight – about 40% lighter than traditional steel-reinforced hoses – and is easy to roll/unroll and maneuver
