Flexible steam hose is a common hose to transfer high temp steam or water. While in another hand, it is a dangerous work. Thus you have to pay more attention to the the method of use. The person who install and use the hose should wear protective equipment as per the regulation. For example, you should wear safety helmet, rubber gloves, etc. Then next let me show you the specific use methods.
First of all, check the steam hose
Before using the hose steam, check if the root of the hose is fixed by double strand iron wires. Then check if it is firm. Then check if there is an iron pipe at the head of the rubber hose. While the wire should also should be double-track iron wire. If you find the fixation is not firm or not meet the standard, you have to do some adjustment. Then you can make the next action.
Second, check the abnormal
Check if the steam hose is aging or get hurt. While if you find out any of them, change a new one at once. But in some cases, rubber hose is in good condition and there is only damage. Thus you can use a saw to cut the rubber hose at the damaged place. Then insert the iron pipe and fix it. You should never use it with a leak point. (The length of the fire fighting steam hose is strict. Thus if you find there was any damage on the fire fighting, replace it at once).
Because the length does not meet the needs of use. When connect two steam tubing, check if each rubber hose is smooth and free of blockage. Then you can connect them with proper steam hose fittings. If you have any questions about the use of flexible steam hose, contact Orientflex.
