A hose is a flexible tube used for transferring fluids from one point to another. The hoses are designed depending on the expected performance and application. Some common hose factors include pressure rating, lengthy, chemical compatibility, and size. Most hoses are constructed with PVC, nylon, polyurethane, or polyethylene, depending on the pressure rating and environmental needs. Advanced technology has made it possible to create hoses from special grades of polyethylene such as LLDPE and LDPE. Most hoses are designed to operate in line with flanges, spigots, clamps
, and nozzles that help to control fluid flow. The main types of hoses include Air Hose
, Chemical Hose, Fire Hose, and Material Handling Hoses
among others. When selecting a hose, it is prudent to put a lot of focus on the fluid or gas that will be moved and operating pressure. Make sure to visit our page to see the full range of hoses and pick the ideal option for your facility.
