Precautions For Using Silicone Hose
Silicone hose occupies a very important position in our lives, it can be used in all aspects of our lives and work, is an indispensable accessory product. It is often used in life, but do you know how to use silicone hose correctly?
1. Working pressure
In the process of conveying materials, silicone hoses will be affected by the pressure brought by the materials, which requires that the pressure resistance of silicone hoses must be good. Under normal circumstances, it needs to be twice the actual working pressure, and the burst pressure of the silicone hose should be three to four times the normal working pressure of the hose. Only hoses that meet the above standards are qualified silicone hoses.
2. Correct installation
The silicone hose has good elasticity at room temperature, and its bending radius is very small, which can be bent greatly without wrinkling. But even so, you should avoid bending the silicone hose during installation, and at the same time pay attention to the size of the hose, because these will affect the smoothness of the material transportation.
3. Use process
When using the silicone hose, avoid pulling on the hose, not allowing it to bend excessively, let alone bend it at the root. If the silicone hose needs to be stretched and deformed with the operation of the machine when the machine is working, the silicone hose should be kept loose to avoid the sudden increase in the pressure of the material and the explosion of the hose.
4. Working temperature
Temperature is an important factor that affects the aging of silicone hoses. It can accelerate the reaction of oxygen in the air with the hoses, thereby accelerating the aging of silicone hoses. Therefore, it is necessary to avoid the existence of heat sources around the work of the silicone hose. If it cannot be avoided, products such as heat insulation plates or protective sleeves can be added to isolate or reduce the damage of the silicone hose to the temperature.
