This Goodyear Engineered Products Hi-Per blue FEP chemical hose assembly is suitable for conveying a wide range of chemicals and petroleum-based fluids. Its tube, made of FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene), is specially designed to resist these materials, and its blue Versigard (EPDM, ethylene propylene diene monomer) cover resists aging, chemicals, ozone, and heat. This hose is reinforced with a spiral-plied synthetic fabric and double wire helix for a maximum pressure rating of 200 pounds per square inch (psi) and full vacuum rating of 29" Hg. It can withstand temperatures ranging from -40 to +300 degrees F (-40 to +149 degrees C), and comes equipped with two factory-installed 316 stainless steel cam and groove couplings. This hose is suitable for a wide range of commercial and industrial chemical and petroleum transfer applications.
Industrial hoses transfer or convey air or liquid in hose systems. When selecting industrial hoses, use the STAMPED method:
|S = Size (ID, OD, and length)|
|T = Temperature (maximum and minimum temperatures of material being transported)|
|A = Application (industry or process)|
|M = Material (to be conveyed, type and concentration)|
|P = Pressure (maximum working pressure)|
|E = Ends (type of end connectors or couplings on hose)|
|D = Delivery method (volume and velocity)|
The inside diameter of the hose must be adequate to keep pressure loss to a minimum and avoid damage to the hose due to heat generation or excessive turbulence. The hose must be capable of withstanding the minimum and maximum temperatures that occur within the hose system. Some applications require specialized oils or chemicals to be conveyed through the system. In this case, hose selection must ensure compatibility of the hose tube, cover, couplings and O-rings with the fluid used. Industrial hoses are used in systems such as air compressors, automatic manufacturing operations, aircraft controls, and tire installation in industries including agriculture, mining, road construction, firefighting, and aviation.
