In the last piece, we learned the reasons that why we need to focus on the storage of a sweeper hose. Then next, let’s talk about the factors that affect the storage of the rubber hose.
Temp and humidity
In order to store hoses well, the indoor temp should be above zero and below 35℃. Based on the test, 15℃ is the best. As for the indoor humidity, it should be no more than 60%.
Industrial hoses should avoid direct sunlight and strong artificial light. Because that will degrade the rubber You can also paint the windows in the storage room red or orange to avoid sunlight.
Ozone and static
Do not store items that can generate ozone and static electricity together with this sweeper hose, because ozone and static will destroy the rubber material of the hose. Such items include electric motor, mercury product, high voltage electrical machine, etc.
Except for this specific sweeper hose, all industrial hoses can not be mixed with chemical raw materials. While these include fuel, volatile matter, petroleum, etc. They also content metals such as iron, manganese, copper, etc.
The storage location should keep a certain safe distance from the heat source. Because in the heat environment for a long time will reduce the property. But if you can not find such a place, you can place a heat insulation board in the middle.
Frequent changes in the magnetic field will cause the metal wires in the hose to generate current. Then it will cause the hose to heat up and deform. Therefore, there can not be magnetic field changes in the storage room. While items that cause magnetic field changes include cable, high frequency generator, etc.
