In our daily life, you may heard steam pipe. But have you ever heard steam hose? It’s mainly in industry for cooling system and steam transfer. While it’s specially suitable for food factory to transfer water and saturated steam. It’s unusual in our house. Thus you may not know it. Next let me introduce you that.
What is steam hose
Also called steam rubber hose, it’s mainly for water and steam transfer. It consists 3 parts, inner tube, reinforce and cover. The tube and cover absorb heat resistant synthetic rubber. Cover is flexible and light in weight. While the tube is durable and oil resistant. Besides, the min burst pressure is 4 times of working pressure. Thus it’s safe enough for general industrial work.
Types of steam hose
It suitable for water or steam transfer. While the temp should be within 150℃. It has great heat resistance. While the min burst pressure can be 10 times than the working pressure.
Armed fabric hose
The difference with common hose is that the cover is zinc coated metal wire. As this can effectively strengthen the hose. Then improve the pressure resistance. It’s generally used in complex environment. However, it request high security.
It’s widely used in electronic, aerospace, etc. There is not any mechanical impurity on the hose. Besides, it has high strength and chemical stability. Moreover, the corrosion resistance and insulation are also good. In another hand, it can process to different shapes like S.
Silicone steam hose has great temp resistance. It’s also nontoxic and odourless. Besides, the pressure and moisture resistance is great.
Above are the common types. While you have to choose the proper one based on your work condition. If you have no idea, just contact OrientFlex. We will offer you the best solution.
