Interesting fact about flexible hoses

Flexible hoses are in use for numerous applications, from industrial to domestic. They are essential for transporting fluids and gases safely and efficiently.

One of the most fascinating facts about flexible hoses is that their construction can consist of many materials, including rubber, metal, and plastic. Each material has advantages and disadvantages; therefore, it is necessary to have the correct material for the specific application.

For example, rubber hoses are often used for transporting hot gases & air, as they are flexible and durable. Plastic hoses are regular for chemicals, powders, dust and fumes, as they are lightweight and easy to install.

How to choose the correct flexible hose for your needs

When choosing a flexible hose, it is vital to consider the following factors:

  • What type of fluid or gas will be in transportation? Some materials are more resistant to certain fluids and gases than others.
  • What is the operating pressure and temperature? The hose must withstand the pressure and temperature of the fluid or gas for transport.
  • What is the length and diameter of the hose required?
  • What type of end fittings are required?

If you are unsure which type of flexible hose is right for your application, contact us; we would love to advise you.
