Maintenance and use of rubber hoses

Oct 07, 2019

Rubber hose, is a wire braided hose. The hose consists of an inner glue layer, a wire braid layer and an outer adhesive layer. Suitable for the transport of hydraulic fluids such as alcohols, fuels, lubricants, emulsions, etc.

Rubber hose applications cover various industrial production manufacturing and circulation areas, widely used in petroleum, chemical, ship, dock, tanker, agriculture, food, beverage, medicine and other industries, as well as hot and cold water, steam, ventilation, cooling, fire, hydraulic, media such as gas, water, fog, mud, sand, iron and other aspects.

The selection and use of rubber hoses should be noted as follows:

1. Correct choice of rubber hose
Determine the length of the rubber hose you need, and also check that the rubber hose is in compliance with the selected hose. Make sure that the rubber hose you will use is the most suitable. Work pressure and suction values should be carefully determined. In particular, it should be noted that sudden pressure changes or pressure peaks exceeding the maximum allowed will greatly shorten the life of the rubber tube. Both ends of the rubber tube cannot be continuously immersed in the substance to be transported.

2. Install the rubber hose for use
If you install a rubber tube with a bend radius that is less than the specified minimum, the life of the rubber tube will be greatly reduced. Therefore, before installation, it is recommended that you use the information for consultation, especially the information on the bending radius of the rubber hose.

3. Maintenance of rubber hose
Cleaning: After using the rubber hose, it is recommended that you empty the hose. If necessary, it should be cleaned.
Check: The rubber hose must be inspected after each use to ensure that it is not structurally damaged.
Pressure: Hydraulic testing is recommended if the rubber hose is subjected to severe pressure during use or if the outer layer of the rubber hose will come into contact with the delivered liquid for a prolonged period of time.
