Hydra-Flex, Inc. is a nozzle and fluid-handling product manufacturer based out of Eagan, MN. The company was founded on the belief that they could find a better way to manufacture innovative and reliable fluid handling products. Hydra-Flex manufacturers quality high pressure nozzles that MacQueen is proud to offer.

Four things to consider when selecting the right nozzle for the job.

  1. Which nozzle can your pump support?
  2. What type of project will you be working on?
  3. What are the safety considerations?
  4. Is speed or water consumption more important to you?

All of the nozzles we offer feature stainless steel housings and tungsten carbide wear surfaces to withstand harsh environments and last longer than alternatives. The nozzles also feature non-conductive urethane coatings, which protect both the operator and sensitive underground utilities.
