Company Introduces Improved B757 Lavatory Hose Design

Says Current Design Leads To "Consistent Failures"

In response to problems experienced by the current design, Co-Operative Industries has introduced an improved Lavatory Supply Hose for use on the Boeing 757-200.

The new FAA PMA approved design features improved strength and flexibility along with corrosion resistant fittings and collars. The improved lavatory hose is also resistant to heat, abrasion, kinking, chlorines, and repeated freezing.

The original OEM hose design has resulted in consistent failures in the field. It is subject to cracked and punctured elbow fittings that result in aircraft delays and cancellations. Co-Operative Industries' upgraded lav hose design offers a solution to this problem. The improved hose assembly features a stainless steel elbow with a wall thickness that is double that of the original design. The silicone hose material provides insulation and flexibility, while offering the added strength and durability of Kevlar, Stainless Steel, and Nomex overbraids.

"This design is considered form, fit and functionally interchangeable with its predecessor. In comparison of price, the Co-Op design offers a significant cost savings. Our kick-off operator has had the upgraded hose in service for a number of years with no failures and excellent operational results," states David Wright, VP of Business Development. Co-Operative Industries Lavatory Hose Assemblies are interchangeable with Boeing P/Ns 10-60871-363, 10-60871-365, and AS4471-12-0260.

Co-Operative Industries is an ISO9001:2000 and AS9100B registered company based in Fort Worth, TX. The company designs and manufactures electrical wiring interconnects, ignition leads, and flexible conduits for airframe, engine, ground support equipment, and space applications.

In addition to manufacturing capabilities, Co-Operative Industries also provides Part 145 repair services such as check & test, overhaul and repair, and S/B incorporation for many of the aircraft wiring harnesses in service today.
