This lightweight, medium-duty water suction and discharge hose, with its full vacuum rating of 29" Hg, has a clear PVC tube for applications requiring low temperature flexibility, such as construction, agriculture, and mining. It is resistant to moisture, oils, alkalis, and weak acids, and its blue rigid PVC helix reinforcement offers maximum resistance to flex and crush damage. It is capable of functioning effectively at temperatures ranging from -40 to +150 degrees F (-40 to +65 degrees C), and is fitted with aluminum cam and groove couplings for convenient fitting and extension.
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.
