Composite hose has an important position in the industry. Maybe you don’t know much about it. Let’s take a look at what composite hose is and how to classify it.
What is a composite hose
Composite hose consists of multi-layer polymer film and synthetic fiber. While the inner and outer layers are wound with spiral metal wires. The reinforce provides strength. And the outer layer is colored for wear and aging resistance. The the inner spiral steel wire layer is stainless steel or aluminum alloy. While the outer wire is stainless steel or galvanized steel.
Composite hose combines the features of various materials. Thus it has light weight, high and low temp and corrosion resistance. Besides, the hose is flexible and soft. Thus it is more and more popular in modern industry.
How to classify composite hose
1. Multi-purpose oil-resistant composite hose
Mainly to transfer fuel, oil liquid or gas, such as gasoline, diesel, and other products.
2. Multi-purpose chemical delivery hose
It’s to deliver corrosive chemical liquid and gas products, with excellent chemical resistance.
3. Vehicle hose
The hose is for tank truck, soft and light, suitable for frequent bend and move. It has long service life.
4. Dock oil hose
Generally, it’s for for wharf ships. It has reinforced structure and belongs to heavy duty type. Besides, it has excellent chemical resistance and will not crack even if frequent bend.
5. Paint conveying hose:
Mainly used in paint products. Because it has excellent solvent, wear and oxidation resistance.
6. Low temp resistant hose:
It’s used in low temp environments. It’s also suitable for low temp products such as LPG, LNG, propane, dry ice, etc.
7. High temp hose
Mainly serves in high temp conditions such as hot water and hot oil.
