This Goodyear Engineered Products Flexsteel Futura black nitrile rubber gasoline hose assembly is suitable for conveying gasoline, diesel fuel, ethanol blends up to E85, and biodiesel blends up to B20. Its black nitrile synthetic rubber tube resists oil, petroleum products, and aromatic compounds, and its Futurin (CPE, chlorinated polyethylene) cover resists ozone, weathering, oil, chemicals, and flame. It has braided wire reinforcement for a maximum pressure rating of 50 pounds per square inch (psi). This hose assembly can withstand temperatures ranging from -40 to +140 degrees F. It meets Underwriter's Laboratories (UL) Standard 300 and Underwriter's Laboratories of Canada (CUL) standards for dispensing flammable liquids, and comes equipped with two factory-installed cast zinc male National Pipe Taper (NPT) threaded couplings with crimped aluminum ferrules. This hose is suitable for conveying gasoline and other fuels in a wide range of commercial, industrial, and agricultural applications.
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.
