For hot water and saturated steam, ordinary high pressure hose cannot work normally. However, steam hose with braided wire reinforce can provide the best solution. It’s mainly to transport steam and control heat. The hose is very flexible and vibration resistant. It consists of three parts: hose, steel wire and outer surface. The steam hose absorbs high quality black smooth synthetic rubber (mainly EPDM). While it’s the best material to withstand high temp. Therefore, the hose can transport steam safely.
The steam hose is a specially designed high pressure hose. Proper use of steam hoses is important to protect the personal safety of customers.
Notes when use a steam hose
1. You can’t replace the steam hose with a hydraulic hose. Although hydraulic pipes can withstand higher pressure. But they are relatively bulky. What’s more, hydraulic hose can not withstand high temp. Besides, it’s easy to cause steam leak and then cause hurt. Therefore, you should use special steam hose to transport the steam.
2. Never replace the steam hose with low pressure and low temp rubber hose. Because it will cause huge safety hazards. Besides, the cost will be much higher than that of steam hose.
3. Use hoops instead of special joints for steam pipes at will. With a pressure of more than 10 kg, just need a few thin steel wires to tighten. Thus there will be huge safety risk.
4. Never focus on the check and change of steam hose regularly. Steam hose is the item subject to wear and tear. Customers want to change it for several years. But they can’t realize that the safety brought by regular repair cannot be measured by money.
