Engineered for your Compatibility, Handling & Environmental needs
The unique manufacturing process techniques assure the proper gauge and pitch of the inner and outer wires at all times. Combined with the “labyrinth seal” that is self-energized by the internal pressure of the liquids and the action of all material components together, we create composite hoses of unparalleled flexibility and reliability.The result… engineered composite hose designs that don’t kink or collapse with superb flexibility; that provide great hoop strength, exceptional service life and offer superior safety and performance.
The barrier layer in all our standard oil and chemical hoses prevents permeation by both polar fluids (like methanol) and non-polar liquids (like gasoline) from escaping the hose. The hose wall is then reinforced with bulk woven fabrics that help protect the films in the hose wall from mechanical damage. This provides you a composite hose with superb structure and heavy duty cover layers that do not deteriorate due to ozone, UV, oil or chemical attack; that maintains maximum strength, flexibility and durability and that are compatible with the widest range of fluids and vapors.
Electrical Conductivity Considerations
Typically, most hose assemblies have full end-to-end electrical continuity with less than 10 ohms resistance that is achieved by bonding both the inner and outer wires to the end connections and provide full hard vacuum capability.Assemblies are also available with specified electrical resistance, semi-conductive or with non-conductive properties. This provides for a composite hose that prevents sparking and arc-over hazards and meets the electrical properties requirement of industrial applications.
Composite Hose Assemblies
Each end connection is specifically engineered, designed and manufactured to engage and make a perfect union with the hose wall and the hose shank or tailpiece. The ferrule and tailpiece are permanently engaged to the hose by the external swagging or crimping process. This provides the hose assembly that is engineered to perform to rated burst pressure and the client is assured of
100% performance of the complete hose assembly
Real Advantages for your applications compared to rubber and metal hoses…
Composite hoses are lightweight, kink proof and flexible for superb handling.
Multi-layer construction prevents catastrophic failures.
Flexibility is retained at low and even cryogenic temperatures
Fatigue-free and do not age or weather.
