First, let’s take a look at what myth everyone has about the quality of hose use.
1. The thicker the wall thickness of the hose, the better the quality. Many friends who use domestic hoses often pass this point on. The hose is composed of an inner rubber layer, an outer rubber layer and a reinforce. The wall thickness is the sum of the three-layer structure. In the concept, the larger the wall thickness, the greater the pressure the hose will bear. But in fact, the core factor that affects the pressure bearing size of the hose is the reinforce. Include the structure, material of the reinforce layer and other factors.
2. The better the transparency of the hose, the better the quality. Many friends in the food and medical industry often have this view. They think that hoses that can see the flow of media are of good quality. While rubber hose is not clear and can not see the flow of media inside are of poor quality. This view is actually a myth. Because whether it is clear or not refers to the inherent features of the material itself. And has little to do with the quality of the hose.
3. The smelly hose is of poor quality. This issue is of particular concern in the food and medical industry. Many customers believe that hoses used to transport food should not have any smell. In fact, rubber hoses also contain an inherent smell to the material itself. This smell has no impact on the quality of the hose and the medium transfer. In addition, food hoses are absolutely not allowed to contain any other odor.
4. If there is a problem with the hose during use, most people will think it is a quality problem. This is also common. In fact, there are many reasons for problems that arise during use. Incorrect selection, crimping problem and installation problem can also cause hose fail.
