What is an Industrial Hose?
An industrial hose is any hose designed specifically to safely withstand the extreme pressures or temperatures and resist the attacks of caustic or abrasive chemicals associated with industrial processes. Industrial hoses may consist of loose lengths or prefabricated modular units which include application specific fittings. These hoses are typically constructed with a flexible outer sheath of chemical, heat, and lubricant resistant rubber reinforced at various points with a textile or metal braided sheath. The union between the hose and fittings are also designed to carry high pressures, and the fittings themselves are typically robust, heavy duty variants. Industrial hoses are generally used in hydraulic, pneumatic, high pressure lubrication, and chemical process systems.
Hoses destined for use in industrial processes generally have to contend with four factors which the common garden hose doesn't. These are high pressure, temperature extremes, mechanical stress, and chemical attack. Some industrial hose types have to deal with most if not all of the above as part of their regular operational regimens. These four aggressive environmental factors are countered in different ways and which may be applied separately or collectively depending on the hoses' end use.
