Military Qualifications That Build Confidence
In the mid-1980’s, Hydrasearch developed its ER512 line of hoses and fittings. Following tests and Qualified Products Listings (QPL) approvals by the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), the ER512 line became widely used aboard Navy ships for vibration absorption, sound deadening, and movement of connected equipment. Since then, Hydrasearch has received QPL listings for six additional product lines, plus acceptance of all related accessory equipment.
Many of the products listed in this catalog comply with U.S. Military Specifications MIL-H- 24136, and MIL-F-24787. Hydrasearch products are approved under Qualified Products Listings QPL-24135, QPL-24136 and QPL-24787.
Our growth and successful penetration of the market led to the relocation of Hydrasearch’s manufacturing activities to larger facilities in 1994. One year later, we acquired Technical Products & Precision Manufacturing Company. Known for its quality line of valves and fittings, the Technical Products acquisition significantly expanded our product offerings to the defense industry, as well as to the select commercial markets worldwide, such as the petrochemical industry. In 1999 Hydrasearch acquired the Aerospace Hose and Fitting Line from Deutsch Metal Components. This acquisition continues our efforts to expand our presence in the military market.
Quality Control Ensures Reliability
Supplying high quality products is our foremost concern at Hydrasearch. We maintain an ISO 9001 registered Quality System which ensures strict adherence to requirements. Many Hydrasearch products contain special codes that can be traced to a specific heat of raw material whose chemical and physical properties have been analyzed, tested, and recorded.
Complete Customer Satisfaction
Supplying products that meet strict design and quality standards is only part of our mission. At Hydrasearch, we strive to establish and maintain close relationships with each of our customers. We pay attention to the little details that help you obtain just what you need, when you need it.
