With lightweighting always a priority in motorsport, the ability to design and manufacture complete microbore fluid transfer assemblies in exotic materials becomes ever more important.
With a history dating back over 30 years in their sphere of fluid transfer, FHS have been constantly tracking the advances in motorsport technology to ensure that they provide solutions for systems that deliver advanced levels of consistency, on a par with technologies employed in other areas of the racecar.
In dealing with many major teams in F1, WRC and Endurance Racing, FHS’ expertise has grown alongside their customers’ demands for lighter, more efficient and more durable assemblies with the result that they are now positioned as system designers and manufacturers.
In today’s Formula 1 car, the hydraulic applications are particularly demanding and with the space for ancillaries being squeezed by ERS components and energy stores, it is essential that completed fluid transfer assemblies are made as compact as possible.
Thanks to innovative joining processes such as FHS Swagetite – where small bore titanium tubing, for example, can be permanently joined to a flexible hose with complete reliability – this can be achieved with tubing as small as 3mm in diameter. The integrity of the join has been proven particularly effectively in the rugged stages of WRC competition the world over.
To provide the end-to-end solution to a fluid transfer problem, FHS have – over the years – developed partnerships with many like minded global businesses. This has given them an undeniable edge in being able to integrate world leading ancillaries into leading edge motorsport assemblies. Products such as:
Pall Filtration – the most comprehensive range of filters for today’s motorsport industry
Circor Industria solenoid valves – miniature products built to aerospace standards of precision
In addition to FHS stock-in-trade range of hose and fittings which are being developed constantly, their customers are supported with the following range of products and services, all of which can be found in detail on the new website:
Quick Disconnects • Flexible couplings • Protective Sleeving • 3D Prototyping
