Each product has a usage standard, and rubber tubes are no exception. Using the hose correctly not only reduces the problems, but also extend its service life. So do you know the usage specs of rubber hoses?
First, let’s focus on the material issue of rubber hoses
Each rubber pipe is suitable for a certain medium. For example, nitrile rubber hose is suitable for various oils. While silicone rubber can transport high temp liquid, gas, etc. Thus you can not use the hose to deliver medium at will. Otherwise it will cause damage to the rubber layer inside the hose. It will also reduce the service life with the time goes on.
Then there is the issue of delivery pressure
Based on the max working pressure, rubber hose can be low, middle and high pressure hose. Thus you should make sure the pressure in the . If the max pressure of the hose selected is insufficient, it will cause damage to the hose itself; if it is too large, although it will not cause damage to the hose structure, it is very expensive and may reduce the boring conveying pressure. It may affect the normal operation of the equipment.
Next is the installation of the hose
The hose is generally kept in a relaxed state when used, which not only helps adapt to the environment, but also reduces the pressure it endures. Therefore, although the rubber hose can be bent, it can not exceed its bending radius. Otherwise, the hose will be broken and damaged, which is not conducive to the long-term use of the hose.
