About Industrial Hoses
Industrial hoses are flexible tubing used to transfer solids, gases, and liquids. Industrial hoses are subject to harsh environments where they may be bent, coiled, continuously run over, and more. Many different industries use specialty hosing in various applications. It’s important to know what industrial hosing is right for your specific industrial need.
Types of Industrial Hoses
Every type of application may require a different hose with specific properties. Whether your project requires the transfer of non-hazardous materials, water, or dangerous chemicals, we have the right industrial hose for your unique job. Some common types of industrial hoses you may need include:
Oil Resistant Hoses:
Oil resistant hoses are used for the transfer of fuel or other chemicals. Many of the substances carried by these hoses are considered dangerous or harmful. Generally, oil resistant hoses are made from a combination of rigid and flexible PVC.
A layflat hose lays flat when not in use, making it easy to coil and store. Layflat hoses are typically made from PVC and are most commonly used to transfer water from one location to another. Layflat hoses are popular for both irrigation and construction.
Chemical Fume Extraction Hose:
Chemical fume extraction hoses are used to ventilate fumes created during a chemical process safely. They are made from materials that are chemical resistant.
Light Material Handling Hose:
Light material handling hoses are used to move goods such as dry powders, foods, and more.
Dust Collection Hose:
Commercial and industrial businesses use dust collection hoses to collect dust and other fine particulates.
WRAS hoses are used for the transfer of drinking water. WRAS hoses meet safety and hygiene requirements. WRAS hoses are most often used for campsites, festivals, and more.
A ventilation hose is used when hazardous gases or fumes must be transferred. Industries such as chemical, agricultural, and manufacturing often use ventilation hoses to handle gas, smoke, fumes, and dangerous pollutants.
