Chemical transfers involve special substances such as industrial fluids and paints that can be hazardous or toxic when handled manually. This is why various chemical transfer hoses are available to meet the most rigorous and demanding applications. These hoses typically feature heavy-duty composite and rubber constructions to ensure flexibility, durability, and weight requirements are met. They have been tested and proven to be reliable for critical applications.
Different hoses to meet any critical application
Many hose manufacturers carry various chemical hoses made of durable and proven materials to suit specific compounds or substances. So, you will surely find the best product that will allow you to handle and transport industrial chemicals safely and efficiently. In general, a chemical transfer hose must be compatible with the substance it will transfer, so always refer to the manufacturer’s specifications and compare the features to pick a suitable product for your application.
Chemical transfer hoses perform well in high-heat environments and applications with their robust construction and materials. For instance, heavy-duty chemical hoses with a CPE tube, steel helix, and textile reinforcement can withstand temperatures from -45 degrees Fahrenheit to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally, their corrugated cover design ensures flexibility to reduce the risk of damage.
On the other hand, EPDM chemical discharge and suction hoses suit various industrial chemicals at elevated temperatures up to 220 degrees Fahrenheit. Plus, they can withstand extreme lows from -40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Note that higher operating temperatures typically reduce the burst and working pressure of the hose assembly. You can prevent this by ensuring the hose gaskets and couplings are compatible with your hose. Additionally, ensure the hose suits your application to prolong its service life and increase your safety during critical applications.
Heavy-duty materials for reliable performance
Chemical transfer hoses come in other materials, such as FEP, PTFE, UHMW, XLPE, and composites, and all are proven capable of meeting the most rigorous industrial chemical applications. PTFE and FEP hoses feature heavy-duty fluoropolymer, rubber, and stainless constructions, and XLPE and UHMW hoses have robust composite and rubber.
