Fluid Transfer SYSTEMS

If you travelled on a DMU or DEMU in the UK in the last 20 years then it’s almost certain you’ve been moved, heated, cooled or lit by systems that use AB Hoses & Fittings Ltd. fluid transfer products or services.

We are a “one stop shop” for all of your fluid transfer system needs, working with all hydraulic, hydrostatic, pneumatic, air conditioning and toilet systems on heritage rail to the latest modern rolling stock, for OEM’s, rolling stock manufacturers, operators, maintainers and leasing companies.

We undertake;

  • Parts supply
  • Bespoke flexible and solid hose manufacture
  • Repair, Service and Overhaul of pumps and motors
  • Maintenance/Installation services
  • Continuing Product support and improvement
  • Engineering consultancy for fluid transfer systems
  • New system design, build and installation
  • UK distributor for Serto AG rail components


We are RISQS registered and assured for fluid transfer related activities.

We select the market leading products we use through working with our technical partners and customers and recognise the need for compliance – EN45545 being a prime example – and product reliability and through-life cost reduction.
