Don’t throw away your electrically-heated hoses after they become clogged with PUR adhesive—Instead, send them to IMMCO. We’ll clean them for a fraction of the cost of a replacement hose. Cleaning typically costs ¼ to ⅓ of the cost of a brand new hose. We offer a super-fast 2-4 week turnaround time for most hoses.
Get Your Hoses Performing Like New
PUR Adhesive is great for a wide range of applications, but the material has a major drawback—With each cycle, a thin layer of PUR cures on the inside of your hose.
Over time, the layers build up until the hose capacity is greatly diminished, and it becomes unusable. The hose will still heat, but you’ll find it impossible to achieve your desired pump rate.
At this point, most manufacturers just buy a replacement hose and throw the old one away. A replacement hose might cost $1,000, $2,000, $5,000—or even more! What if you could get your hose cleaned for $200 to $1,000? Well, now you can.
At IMMCO, we will first examine your hose for defects and then test it to ensure it heats properly. If the only problem is a buildup of PUR adhesive, we will thoroughly clean the hose, so it performs again like it did when it was new.
Warning Signs of a Clogged Hose
How do you know when your hose is clogged? PUR hot melt adhesive starts to build up the second you run it through a new hose. Over time the pump rate will start to slowly decline. The best way to determine if your hoses are in need of cleaning is to monitor your pump rate—once you see a drop it’s time to send it to IMMCO for service.
Will Cleaning Restore the Hose to its Original Condition?
Yes! Our proprietary process will completely clean all PUR adhesive from the core of the hose. Keep in mind that we cannot repair hoses that do not heat or have an RTD sensor that isn’t working. If we are unable to clean the hose for some reason, or the hose fails during our final pressure test, you pay nothing. You only pay if we successfully clean the hose.
Hose Cleaning Service Cost
Hose cleaning costs but a fraction of what you would pay for a replacement and it’s just as effective of a solution.

Instead of investing thousands in new replacement hoses, turn to IMMCO for prompt and professional hose cleaning service. Not only will our services get you back to achieving desired pump rates, but our turnaround time and pricing can’t be beaten.
How Should I Prepare My Hoses Before Shipping?
Coil the hose while it is hot and then plug both ends. If you try to coil while cold, you stand the very real chance of cracking the Teflon core and destroying the hose.
How Should I Package and Ship My Hose?
We generally recommend that you ship via UPS, however, you can use any carrier that you like. If you’re sending more than two hoses, you might find it less expensive to ship it by LTL.
What if My Hose is Irreparably Damaged?
If we are unable to clean your hose, we will give you a 20% discount on a brand new hose. We carry hoses for the following machines:
Nordson®, Slautterback®, Meltex®, Graco Pyles®, ITW Dynatech/LTI®, Robatech®, and Dittberner® are trademarks of each of the above companies. IMMCO makes compatible heated hoses to fit all of the above company machines. IMMCO is not affiliated with any of them.
Keep in mind that we can only clean hoses that are clogged with PUR Adhesive.
