Industrial rubber hose must know–5 facts

industry rubber hoses

The fact that industrial hoses expand

Industrial rubber hose in use will also be due to the internal media temperature, pressure and other factors and expansion. This is due to the impact of temperature or pressure changes in the media inside the rubber hose, making the media molecular spacing increased, resulting in hose volume expansion.

Similar to the industrial hose, the choice of industrial rubber hose, also need to be based on the requirements of specific application scenarios, the choice of high temperature resistance, high pressure resistance and other characteristics of the hose, to ensure that it can work in a variety of environments stable and reliable. At the same time, in the process of use, also need to be based on the actual situation of the hose inspection and maintenance to ensure that it can last. The following points need to be noted:

  • Observe the degree of expansion: according to the actual situation, determine the degree of expansion of the hose or hose, if the expansion is excessive, it may have an impact on the efficiency and safety of work, and need to take timely measures to deal with.
  • Check the connection parts: the connection parts of the hose or hose may be loose and leaky, and need to check whether the connection parts are tightened to ensure their normal operation.
  • Check the wear and tear of the hose or hoses: After using the hose or hoses for a period of time, problems such as aging and wear may occur and need to be replaced in time to avoid safety accidents.

Adjust the parameters of the hose or hose according to the actual situation: according to the actual situation, adjust the temperature and pressure of the medium and other parameters to ensure that the hose or hose can work normally, but also to extend its service life.

Main Applications

  • Petrochemical industry: industrial rubber hoses can be used to convey various petrochemical products, such as oil, natural gas, chemicals, solvents, etc.
  • Metallurgical industry: industrial rubber hose can be used to convey various media in metallurgical industry, such as slag, coke, steel, etc.
  • Construction industry: industrial rubber hose can be used to convey various media in the construction industry, such as cement, mortar, concrete, etc.
  • Food industry: industrial rubber hoses can be used to convey various media in the food industry, such as juice, beer, beverage, dairy products, etc.
  • Pharmaceutical industry: industrial rubber hose can be used to convey various media in the pharmaceutical industry, such as pharmaceutical raw materials, drugs, medical gases, etc.

What properties of the hose must be understood in the application?

  • Material: Industrial rubber hoses are usually made of natural rubber, butyl rubber, nitrile rubber, neoprene, silicone rubber and other materials. The choice of material depends on the medium and working environment.
  • Structure: Industrial rubber hose is usually composed of inner tube, reinforcement layer, outer tube and connecting parts. The inner and outer layers can be made of different materials according to different media.
  • Pressure level: The pressure level of industrial rubber hose is usually between working pressure and burst pressure. The pressure level depends on the size, material and structure of the hose and other factors.
  • Temperature range: The temperature range of industrial rubber hose depends on the choice of material. Different materials have different tolerance to temperature.
  • Corrosion resistance: The material of industrial rubber hose should have good corrosion resistance to avoid the corrosion and damage of the medium to the hose.
  • Wear resistance: The material of industrial rubber hose should have good wear resistance to avoid leakage and damage to the hose due to wear and tear in the conveying process.
  • Flexibility: industrial rubber hose should have enough flexibility and bendability to adapt to various complex working environments.
  • Lifespan: The lifespan of industrial rubber hose depends on factors such as the choice of materials, use environment and use conditions. Regular inspection and maintenance can extend the service life of the hose.

Cleaning and maintenance of hoses

Regularly check the appearance of the hose: check the surface of the hose for cracks, deformation, debonding, aging, etc. If problems are found, they should be replaced in time.

  • Clean the inside of the hose: before the hose is replaced or cleaned, the internal medium should be drained first, and then cleaned using special cleaning tools. Be careful not to use hard objects to scrape the inner wall of the hose to avoid damage.
  • Timing: industrial rubber hose scrubbing time should be based on the actual use of the situation. It is generally recommended to drain the internal medium before the hose is replaced or cleaned, and then use special cleaning tools for cleaning.
  • Tools: Cleaning tools can use soft brushes, sponges, cleaning agents, etc. It should be noted that do not use hard objects to scrape the inner wall of the hose to avoid damage to the hose.
  • Method: When cleaning, first rinse off the dirt on the surface of the hose with water, and then scrub with detergent or soapy water. The choice of cleaning agent or soapy water should be based on the hose material and the nature of the medium.
  • Caution: When cleaning the hose, care should be taken not to use overheated water or strong acid and alkali solutions to avoid damage to the hose. In addition, after cleaning, the hose should be promptly drained of water inside and on the surface to avoid rust or mold breeding.
  • Prevent hose twisting and squeezing: when installing and using the hose, should avoid twisting and squeezing, so as not to affect the performance and life of the hose.
  • Regularly replace the hose: After a period of use, the hose will be aged, hardened and brittle, which then needs to be replaced in time to avoid accidents.
  • Storage precautions: unused hose should be stored in a cool, dry place, avoid direct sunlight, high temperature, humidity and other conditions to ensure the service life of the hose.

Hose Storage

  • Temperature and humidity: the place where the industrial rubber hose is stored should be kept dry, ventilated and cool environment. Direct sunlight and high temperature environment should be avoided to avoid aging, cracking or hardening of the hose. In addition, excessive humidity will also affect the performance of the hose.
  • Stacking way: When storing, should try to avoid the hose is under pressure or twisted deformation. You can choose to roll up the hose or vertical storage to avoid squeezing or pressing the hose.
  • Classified storage: different types, different specifications, different media hose should be stored separately to avoid cross-contamination or confusion.
  • Regular inspection: The stored hoses should be checked regularly for cracking, aging, deformation, cracks and other problems, so that they can be replaced in time.

In short, when storing industrial rubber hoses, attention should be paid to keep the environment dry, ventilated and cool to avoid pressure or distortion of the hose. At the same time, the hose should be stored separately and checked regularly to ensure the normal service life of the hose.

If you need to store industrial rubber hoses that have been used, please note the following points:

  • Clean: Before storage, the hose must be cleaned to avoid corrosion and damage to the hose from dirt and chemical residues.
  • Dry: cleaned hose must be thoroughly dried to avoid mold or bacteria breeding during storage, resulting in hose deterioration or damage.
  • Packaging: the hose that has been cleaned and dried can choose to be packaged in transparent plastic bags, wrapping paper or cartons, etc., to protect against dust, moisture and pollution, and facilitate storage and management.
  • Marking: For the packaged hose, it is best to mark the type of hose, specifications, use time and storage location and other information on the package, easy to find and manage in the future.

It should be noted that the storage time should not be too long, generally not more than a year. In the process of storage, the state of the hose should be regularly checked, if the hose is found cracked, aging, deformation, etc., should be replaced in a timely manner.
