As a hose practitioner, have you ever experience such situation that a client inquiry “I want PVC hose, 20 bar, 100℃”. When you talk with and send client hose details, he tells you that not this. Actually some users can’t recognize white or transparent hose like PVC hose, PU hose, silicone hose and even highly transparent Teflon hose, because they look like the same. Let me introduce the differences between PVC steel wire hose and PU steel wire hose next.
Steel wire hose can be divided into two series, steel wire spiral hose and steel wire braid hose. Braid hose is more suitable for high pressure requirement applications while spiral hose is suitable for ventilation and dust suction. I introduced the differences between them in the previous article and will not talk to much this time.
What’s the different between PVC steel wire hose and PU steel wire hose?
We can see from the name that PVC steel wire hose is made from PVC while PU steel wire hose is made from PU. Structures are similar that both has a inner tube, a cover and steel wire reinforcement. The difference is that the steel wire of PU hose is copper coated with an anti-static copper wire inside. The temperature scope is from -20℃ to 70℃ for PVC hose while it’s -40℃- 90℃ for PU hose.
PVC hose is transparent and nontoxic with a small bending radius. It has certain acid, alkali and pressure resistance.
Besides the characteristics that PVC hose has, PU hose has excellent corrosion, positive and negative pressure resistance. It remains prototype in vacuum and flexible in extreme low temperature. Long lifespan is also an important advantage.
PVC steel wire hose is suitable for even all industries like agriculture, engineering, industry, food process to transfer water, oil, powder and other materials.
PU steel wire hose is widely used in irrigation, mining, wine factory, food and medicine industry, pump and sandblast to transfer particle like dust and sawdust.
