A Summary of Industrial Hoses

Everyone is familiar with the types of hoses used to wash your car, water your plants, or carry out other jobs around the home. However, in terms of industrial hoses, there are many types beyond the simple, lightweight, durable hoses you would use in everyday life. Instead, industrial hoses are used in a broad range of applications and settings. Choosing the right industrial hose for your intended applications is critical and will depend on many requirements. 

Water Hose

As stated, the common water hose is used around the house and is comparatively smaller than industrial hoses. In addition to being much bigger, industrial hoses can be used for applications including fertilizing farms, wastewater drainage, fire departments, large machinery, tank cleaning purposes, and more. Because industrial hoses are designed to withstand a great deal of pressure, they are made from high quality materials such as PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and EPDM rubber (ethylene propylene diene monomer).

Air Hose

Air hoses, as their name suggests, are used in sprayers, compressors, blowers, and other pneumatic lines where air pressure needs to be controlled within specific ranges. Industrial air hoses are made from sturdy materials such as premium rubber. They are most commonly found in construction sites, mines, and other industrial workplaces where they help operations run smoothly while being strong enough to withstand the rugged environments in which they are used.

Beverage and Food Hose

In the beverage and food industries, hoses are frequently used to add or take out liquids, juices, alcohols, milk, and oils from their containers. Hoses of this type are commonly made from high-standard polyurethane so they are able to manage any type of liquid and are durable enough to last for years, even in constant use.

Chemical Hose

Despite their toughness, there are certain liquids that beverage and food hoses are not able to handle. These include strong and hazardous chemicals that require special hoses. In these situations, operators often utilize chemical hoses that are designed to extract or inject acidic chemical substances. The main advantages of chemical hoses are their ability to resist dangerous conditions and their non-stick inner tube, which also makes it ideal for high-temperature materials. These hoses are made from materials such as metal, Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), and rubber.

Material-Handling Hose

Material-handling hoses carry out a similar function to ventilation hoses, in that they are used to transport materials from one location to another. They can transmit things like cement, particles, powder, strong fibers, and more. There are many other hoses that could be categorized as material-handling hoses. These include sandblast, concrete, pulp, and plaster hoses. These hoses are made from materials such as polyurethane & PVC blends, Nitrile, polyurethane, and PVC.
