Fire hose is a common appliance in almost every industries like metallurgy, steel making, construction, mining and community. It sprays high pressure water, foam and other flame retardant fluids to put out the fire. The traditional fire hose adapt flax fibre as the material and lined with rubber. However, a new fire hose becomes more and more popular recent years. That is the PU lined fire hose.
What is PU lined fire hose?
Just as its name implies, PU lined fire hose changes the lining from rubber into PU. How ever, it’s not that simple. The cover is also replaced with high strength polyester fibre, which has excellent flexibility and abrasion resistance. It’s also the raw material of safe belt of vehicles.
Why the PU lined fire hose is popular?
Because it has great properties. First is the high strength. The tearing strength is 3 times of the natural rubber. Second is the abrasion resistance, which is 5 times of the natural rubber. Third is the oil resistance, that’s to say oil will never corrode the hose. Last is the temperature resistance. The great property of PU makes the hose can bear 90℃, while it can remain flexible even in -70℃.
Besides the great property of rubber, it resists high pressure, weather and torsion. What’s more, it’s 40% lighter than the rubber lined fire hose. Therefore, it can reduce the fire fighter’s heavy burden and make the fire fighting more easier.
In fact, it has been the main fire hose in Europe and America. It even act as normal garden hose. In China, it became popular since 1990s because it’s expensive then the rubber hose. More important, we have to import the production equipment.
