Some Key Design Parameters of Your Custom Rubber Hose

19 Jul, 2021
Project Type: This section focuses on the intended application of the rubber hose. For instance, a hose may be used to move things as different as cold water, hot air,oil/Fuel or chemicals at your facility. Maybe it is used to protect a critical assembly or stretched along a piston up to a certain distance. Thus, based on your application requirements, it is important to describe the following:
1,Type of material being carried, or object being protected
2,Maximum working temperature or pressure a hose needs to endure
3,Burst Pressure.
4,Environmental requirements

5,Any other critical features like attachment, fittings, or assembly items

Hose Type: Xiamen Fuste allows you choose from the following materials to build your custom hoses:

EPDM: This synthetic rubber is made of diene monomer, propylene, and ethylene, which lends excellent mechanical properties to the tubing. An EPDM hose can withstand ozone, sunlight, oxygen, and various types of chemicals. The material also possesses excellent aging and weathering resistance properties and remains functional through a broad temperature range from -60°F to +300°F. Crushproof Tubing offers a UL-94 flame-retardant version of EPDM for use in high temperature and other critical environments.

Neoprene: The material is also known as PC rubber or polychloroprene rubber. This synthetic rubber assures excellent weathering and good petroleum resistance, which makes it ideal for long term use in many applications. The useful working temperature of the material is from -50°F to +250° F.

Butyl: Rubber hoses made of butyl possess excellent shock absorption properties. They assure low moisture and gas permeability, and excellent electrical insulation. The material can withstand aging, weathering, heat, ozone, chemicals, flexing, and tearing. The main use for butyl is in CBRN breathing hoses due to its ability to protect against toxic gas infiltration into an air system.

Nitrile: It is a copolymer of butadiene and acrylonitrile which contribute to its excellent physical properties. A nitrile hose can easily resist petroleum, fuels, and water. Additionally, the material has excellent abrasion and oil resistance as well as good tear resistance. The useful temperature range of the material is from -50°F to +250° F. Nitrile hoses provided by Crushproof Tubing is ideal when petrochemical resistance is required.

High Density Polyethylene: HDPE is a very common plastic material used in everything from water bottles to industrial hoses. It can be made food safe, has good weathering properties, is lightweight, comes in any color imaginable, and can be made into hoses that range from very stiff to very flexible in feel.
