High pressure hose s have different types and uses. Among the applications of these products can be used in industrial machines, cars, etc.
The type and material of the manufacturer can be another factor related to these products. So that this hose is made in different materials such as PVC, rubber, thermoplastic, etc.
Among the features, we can mention the high power in load bearing, which is one of the main efficiency of these products.
The number of layers and materials of this hose is different and has a direct relationship on the price of the product. The type that can be found at a reasonable price is PVC, which can withstand loads of up to 40 times. This product is formed by interweaving several layers of material and thread.
When it comes to high performance, rubber hoses have something to say. These hoses can be combined with any material with high composability feature.
For example, you can wrap a thin layer of wire evenly around the hose. Due to the formulation of these materials, they are easily matched with other materials and establish a relative adhesion with other layers, which has caused high elasticity and resistance.
The third category is thermoplastic hoses, which consists of a combination of rubber powder and PVC. This product is very affordable in terms of resistance and price. Due to the use of rubber powder, it includes some of the capabilities of rubber, although it has a much more reasonable price compared to rubber products.
Terpoplast products can withstand 50-60 bar loads. Of course, it should be noted that the number of product layers has an effect on load bearing.
Hoses have two criteria for load evaluation, which are as follows.
- burst pressure
- work pressure
It is the amount of pressure that the hose cannot bear and bursts in a short or long time.
It is the amount of pressure that the hose can withstand at that pressure for a long or short period of time.
Another criteria that can distinguish industrial hoses is the color of the product. Hoses that have rubber powder or thermoplastic in their formulation are also black in color, which can be seen as the identifier of industrial products.
Although PVC hoses can be produced in black color, it can be recognized from the type of material and physical properties that the hose is PVC.
Methods of identifying rubber, thermoplastic and PVC hoses
PVC hose has many similarities to hoses that have rubber in their structure.
The first main difference can be considered the type of material, PVC hoses are significantly stiffer than rubber hoses.
PVC hoses usually have a drier material.
PVC hoses have less flexibility and elasticity than rubber hoses.
PVC hose does not have high elasticity.
PVC hoses have a wide variety of colors.
And the main difference between these products is the price, which is much lower.
One thing that should be noted is that if used correctly, PVC hose, which is almost one fifth of the price of rubber hose, can have up to 70% of the life of rubber hose.
Thermoplastic and rubber hoses
Thermoplast hoses also have a black color due to the rubber powder mentioned above. However, for the beauty of the hose, an additional layer of PVC can be placed on the hose.
But it is difficult to distinguish between thermoplastic hoses and rubber hoses. Because both have similar physical properties and at first glance you may not notice the difference. But it can have very small differences in elasticity, stretch and flexibility.
