About Us

Hydro-Gas Couplings has been a trusted name since its establishment on June 26, 1963. Originally focusing on manufacturing dry break couplings for the Oil, Petroleum, and Tanker Industries, we’ve evolved over the years. In 1983, Karl Häring took over the company, marking a new chapter in our journey.

Expanding our offerings, we began producing a diverse range of Pneumatic, Manual Lubrication, and Liquid Transfer Equipment to cater to a wider range of industries. From our humble beginnings in Booysens Reserve, where we initially operated from rented premises, to our current 2000 sqm factory in Wadeville, Germiston, we’ve grown and adapted to better serve our customers.

Our focus gradually shifted towards Lubrication & Liquid Transfer Equipment, which has become our core business. To align more closely with this market segment, we registered ‘LUBECONSULT’ as a trade name, while ‘HYCO’ remains the registered trademark of our equipment.

A significant aspect of our offering is that 75% of our equipment is manufactured locally in South Africa, ensuring quality and reliability. Our Manual Lubrication solutions cater to a wide array of industries across Southern Africa and selected overseas markets. From mining and construction to agriculture, fishing, and general industries, as well as certain O.E.M’s, our products serve diverse needs.

At Hydro-Gas Couplings, we pride ourselves on delivering efficient solutions that meet the demands of modern industries. Contact us today to explore our range of Manual Lubrication and Liquid Transfer Equipment, proudly manufactured in South Africa.

To offer a complete range of products for our target markets, we import various accessories from Europe, including:

  • Grease Nipples
  • Drip Feed Oilers
  • Oil Level Gauges
  • Pneumatic Quick Couplers


We also import a selection of Semi Rotary Wing Pumps YL series and Full Rotary MS25 series to cater to diverse industry needs.

At Hydro-Gas, we’ve earned a reputation as one of the leading manufacturers in the markets we serve. Our focus on quality and innovation sets us apart in the industry.

In July 2018, Karl Häring, our former leader, sadly passed away. The company is now under the management of Debbie and Craig Häring. They are dedicated to upholding the high quality standards of our lubrication equipment, which is widely utilized across various industries and equipment.
