Hose & Fittings

Mercer Gasket & Shim is a leading manufacturer of premium quality custom hose and fittings that meet the performance criteria of a diverse range of industries.

Our knowledge of fluid system dynamics, port configurations, and materials technology enables us to provide engineering support and material selection guidance to ensure products are durable and compatible with your fluid flow system.

We can configure our hose, tubing, and connector products to meet a broad spectrum of applications, including those that involve severe temperatures, high pressures, aggressive chemicals, high purity, or hazardous conditions. Available in diameters from 0.25” up to 6.0” in unlimited lengths, we manufacture them from a wide range of materials and can fit them with any type of standard or custom industrial connection.

Quality is built into everything we produce, and our hose and fitting components are fabricated in compliance with relevant industry and government standards. Tightly controlled manufacturing processes, combined with strict test and inspection protocols, ensure their long-term reliability and durability even under the most extreme operating conditions.

The table below provides further detail on hose and fitting configurations as well as material types and performance characteristics and industries served. If you are interested in learning more, contact us today.
