The double layer layflat hose should undergo a series of stress tests before leaving the factory. It includes water seepage and burst pressure test, etc. There are many ways to test it. These all help to detect the quality problems.
The test method is as follows:
1. The sample. The length is more than 1.2m, and the number is 3.
2. The I.D. Before measuring, cut the two ends of the sample flat, and then measure them with a plug gauge.
3. The weight. Weigh out the sample.
4. The amount of water seepage. Connect one end to the water source and close the other end to keep the sample straight.During the test, you can tie a line on the the sample or other methods prevent the water seepage from flowing into the tank. And you should collect all the seepage water within the test length into the water tank.
5. The bursting pressure. It includes straight, curved and folded bursting pressure.
When the double layer layflat hose is applied to the irrigation, it is very inconvenient to store it. At this time, you can use the reel tool. It is very convenient.
How to use reel tool?
When you wrap the hose around the reel, you should focus that the hose near the connection is not flattened. The opening and closing directions of the reel inlet valve have clear mark. Clockwise is off. If it is a single-use hose reel, there should be a safety mechanism. Ensure that the hose cannot be deployed without opening the inlet valve. Also, measures should be taken to remove the residual fire extinguishing agent in the passage in the hose reel.
The double layer layflat hose has strong tensile and bending resistance. Besides it can also work at lower and higher temperature. In fact, it is widely used in many industries.
Orientflex is a factory in the production of hoses. The company has advanced production and testing equipment, strong technical. And its products sell well in the world.
