Precautions for using rubber hoses

Nov 18, 2019

Industrial grade rubber hoses, whether the medium is water, gas, oil, chemicals or other, usually consists of internal glue, outer glue and intermediate layer. The intermediate layer is usually dominated by a woven component that enhances the strength of the hose.

Industrial rubber hose applications cover a wide range of industrial manufacturing and distribution fields, widely used in petroleum, chemical, marine, shipyard, tanker, agriculture, food, beverage, pharmaceutical 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 so on.

When using industrial rubber hoses, the following points should be noted:

First, Pressure
1. Make sure to use the rubber hose within the recommended temperature and pressure range.
2. The hose will expand and contract as the internal pressure changes. Cut the hose to the length you need.
3. When applying pressure, slowly open/close any valve to avoid impact pressure and damage the hose.

Second, Fluid
1. The rubber hose used should be transported with the specified medium. It is not allowed to transport the specified medium to prevent corrosion or wear.
2. Before using rubber hoses for oils, powders, toxic chemicals and strong acids or bases, check to see if the rubber hoses are supported.

Third, Bending
1. Use a rubber hose in the range of the minimum bend radius, otherwise the hose will break easily and reduce the pressure.
2. When conveying powders and granules, the smaller bending radius may be worn, and a large-diameter rubber hose is selected depending on the application.
3. On metal parts (joints), do not use them in extremely tight conditions and try to avoid sharp bending near metal parts and avoid them by using elbows.
4. Do not move the installed hoses at will, especially during the movement to avoid stress or bending of the hose joints.

Fourth, Other
1. Do not place the hose directly in a worn area or near an open flame.
2. Please do not let the rubber hose be crushed by the car, etc.
