The Goodyear Engineered Products Plicord Blast green rubber sand blasting hose assembly is suitable for a wide variety of industrial and commercial cleaning and finishing applications that use steel shot or sand as a medium, and consists of a tube constructed with Tufsyn (polybutadiene blend) for tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and static dissipation; and a cover made with four plies of green Plioflex (styrene-butadiene) for resistance to abrasion. Its spiral-plied synthetic fabric reinforcement provides the strength for its maximum working pressure rating of 150 pounds per square inch (psi). This hose can withstand temperatures ranging from -25 to +180 degrees F (-32 to +82 degrees C). It comes equipped with two factory-installed iron universal couplings. This hose is suitable for conveying steel shot or sand blasting in metal, stone, glass, or other cleaning or finishing applications.
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.
