This hose is specifically designed for the pressure washer industry, where pressures up to 4000 psi are required, and its construction reduces damming, which can cause clean spots. Its nitrile synthetic rubber tube is resistant to oils and its RMA Class B synthetic rubber cover is rated for medium oil resistance, which means that it will undergo a maximum volume change of +65% while maintaining at least 50% of its tensile strength after exposure to oil. Its braided steel wire reinforcement provides the strength necessary to reach and maintain its maximum pressure rating of 4000 psi. This hose is capable of functioning effectively at temperatures ranging from -20 to +250 degrees F (-29 to +121 degrees C), and it comes equipped with two male NPT swivel couplings. Typical applications of this hose include surface cleaning operations such as parking decks and lots; beef, dairy, and poultry operations; gas stations; garages; and auto mechanic shops.
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.
