Understanding The Types Of Industrial Hoses

Monday, May 23rd, 2022

Industrial hoses are larger and more powerful than those used for domestic works. They can also be used for a range of purposes other than simply water carrying. In this post, we’ll take a look at the different types of industrial hoses and what their applications are.

Although all of these hoses are used in an industrial environment, they each have a different use as outlined below:

Chemical fume extraction hoses

Chemical fume extraction hoses are used to remove chemical fumes from a room or area. For example, they’re often used in laboratories where chemicals are being mixed together and heated, as well as in chemical plants that have large amounts of chemicals stored or processed on-site. Chemical fume extraction hoses can be found in many other places: pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities; food processing plants; electronics manufacturing facilities; paint manufacturing facilities; adhesives manufacturing operations.

Dust collection hoses

Dust collection hoses are used to collect the dust that is produced when machines are in operation. They’re installed around a machine’s ductwork, where they pick up any dust that has been released into the air. Dust collection hoses can be made with a variety of materials, including rubber and plastic. They can also be reinforced with wire mesh or steel rings to increase their durability and longevity.

Dust collection hoses are typically used in industries where there is frequent exposure to fine particulate matter such as sanding operations or manufacturing facilities like foundries or mills (where metal such as iron ore is crushed into smaller pieces).

High-temperature hoses

High-temperature hoses are used in applications where the hose is exposed to high temperatures. These hoses are made from materials that are resistant to high temperatures, such as polyurethane, polyethylene and polypropylene. These hoses are used in applications such as aircraft engines, power plants and furnaces.

Light material handling hoses

Light material handling hoses are designed to handle light materials such as liquids and fine parts. They are used in applications where a small amount of material is being moved and require little or no pressure. These are also known as “unrated” hoses, as they do not meet the standards for use in high-pressure applications.

Light material handling hoses are used in industrial settings for food and beverage processing, storage tanks cleanup, chemical transport, lubrication systems and paint spraying equipment.

Ventilation hoses

Ventilation hoses are used to remove fumes and odours from a building. They’re used for a variety of applications, ranging from removing smoke from fires in factories to removing chemical vapours from laboratories. The materials used to make ventilation hoses depend on the application. Some ventilation hose manufacturers use PVC because it’s lightweight and inexpensive, while others prefer rubber because it’s more durable.

Each size of ventilation hose has its own purpose with some sizes being more suitable for high-pressure applications than others. Ventilation hoses are available in diameters ranging from 4 inches up to 48 inches.

How To Identify The Correct Hydraulic Hose Fitting

Tuesday, April 5th, 2022

Hydraulic hose fittings are important for machinery in a host of different industries, including construction and water and waste management. These fittings are used to connect hydraulic hoses to other equipment parts. They’re commonly made from plastic, brass, or stainless steel, depending on the industry and application. A range of fittings are available, and to ensure the machinery operates correctly and doesn’t become damaged it’s important to always select the right fitting.

If you’re not sure where to begin, read on for our guide to how to identify the correct hydraulic hose fitting.

1. Check the type of fitting

The first step is to check the type of hydraulic fitting you’re working with. It’ll either be crimped or reusable. It’s generally easy to tell the fitting type but newer equipment tends to have a crimped fitting. Reusable fittings are made up of a socket and nipple. Crimped fittings are permanently sealed using a crimping machine.

2. Find the right port connection

It’s essential that the port connection on the fitting matches the hose so that the equipment operates smoothly. If you know the type the hose connection you can easily check what the other part should be by searching online.

3. Identify the seal type

For a properly sealed and secure fitting, it’s important to identify the correct seal type. You’ll also need to note its size. Seals for hydraulic hoses are either o-rings, mated angles, or tapered threads. O-rings have the seal included. Mated angles use straight and parallel thread types with the male and female units forming the seal. Tapered threads have external threads on the male unit and internal threads on the female.

4. Determine the thread’s fitting design and size

Various types of threads are used for hydraulic fittings that each have different designs and sizes. You need to identify the thread type to choose the right hydraulic hose fitting. Some types are more commonplace in certain regions of the world whilst others are widely used internationally.

Enquire with Norosco
