This medium duty, lightweight suction and discharge hose is manufactured to retain flexibility in cold weather, with a smooth-bore tube construction that minimizes material buildup and resists a variety of chemicals found in agricultural and sanitary industries. Its tube is made of RMA Class B thermoplastic rubber, which resists aging and water-dilute acids and bases, and is rated to undergo a maximum volume change of +65% while retaining a minimum of 50% of its tensile strength after exposure to oil. Its rigid, lime-green polyethylene helix reinforcement adds strength and is resistant to water, acids, alkalis, solvents, abrasion, and weathering. It is capable of functioning effectively at temperatures ranging from -40 to +180 degrees F (-40 to +82 degrees C), and its slightly corrugated outer helix promotes low drag, ease of coupling, and resistance to abrasion. This hose comes equipped with aluminum cam and groove couplings for convenient fitting and extension. It is commonly used in waste management, construction, agricultural, marine, and manufacturing industries.
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.
