Choose the right layflat hose for your app depends on several factors. Including the type of fluid that you transfer, the working pressure required, the temp and work condition, the length of the hose and the required flow rate.
Here are some key factors to consider when select the right layflat hose:
Consider the type of fluid that will transfer through the hose, including its chemical composition, viscosity and temp. This will help you select a hose material that is compatible with the fluid and can bear the temp and chemical of the fluid.
Make sure the max work pressure of your app. Then choose a hose with a work pressure rating that exceeds the max pressure demand to ensure the work will be safe and reliable.
Consider the temp range of your use, like the temp of the fluid and the work condition. Once the temp is much higher than that the hose can bear, layflat hose may fail. Thus choose a hose that can handle the extreme temp and remains flexible at the same time.
Hose size and length
Select a hose size and length that will provide the required flow rate for your use without causing excessive friction loss.
Consider the work condition in which the hose will be used, including exposure to sunlight, ozone, chemical and wear. Choose a hose that can bear these factors.
Select the proper connector for your work based on the type, the size and the material.
With these factors, you can choose the right layflat hose for your work. Thus you can make sure it will perform reliably and safely under the conditions.
