The Goodyear Engineered Products Flexsteel 250 black rubber steam hose is suitable for a wide range of commercial and industrial steam transfer and spray applications and consists of a black tube and cover are made of Pyrosyn, a special form of EPDM synthetic rubber that is highly resistant to heat. This hose is reinforced with two layers of braided steel wire to provide the strength for its maximum pressure rating of 250 psi. It can withstand temperatures ranging from 0 to +450 degrees F (-18 to +232 degrees C), and it can be used with a variety of coupling options (not included). This hose is suitable for cleaning, heat control, fire prevention, pumping, thawing, blow-out service, steam pumps, and hoists in open-end or permanent installation operations. It is typically used in refineries, shipyards, chemical plants, steel mills, foundries, and other heavy industrial applications where severe environmental conditions exist.
Industrial hoses and hose assemblies transfer or convey air or liquid in hose systems. When selecting industrial hoses or hose assemblies, use the STAMPED method to help determine the type of hose needed:
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 and hose assemblies 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.
