A comparison of composite hoses, rubber hoses, steel hoses

Before the emergence of composite hoses, traditional rubber hoses and stainless steel hoses were commonly used in transferring liquid petrochemical products. In cases where hoses are often disassembled and move, there are some obvious shortcomings of rubber hoses and stainless steel hoses. Composite hoses are a new generation of safety hose that has better overall performance and reduces cost, it is specifically designed for the replacement of rubber hoses and stainless steel hoses.

Main Advantages of Composite Hoses

1. Lightweight and high flexibility, good pressure resistance

Compared with the rubber hose of the same specification, under the same conditions of use, the composite hose is 40% lighter than the rubber hose, and the minimum bend radius is 1/3 of that of the rubber hose. It is light and flexible, and is suitable for places with greater mobility, such as oil tanker loading and unloading. A composite hose can be used flexibly in narrower workplaces, which is unmatched by other kinds of hoses.

A composite hose has good resistance to positive and negative pressure. The working pressure of this hose can reach 1.0-4.0 MPa, and the negative pressure can reach 0.1 MPa. Under the same conditions, the pressure resistance of composite hose is also better than that of rubber hose of the same specification as rubber hoses cannot bear pressure with a large bend radius.

2. Good acid and alkali resistance

Because composite hoses use synthetic resin as one of the main material, it has better resistance to various aromatic hydrocarbons and chemicals than rubber hoses and steel hoses. It is especially suitable for some acid and alkaline liquids which rubber hoses and steel hoses are not resistant. Composite hoses have good temperature resistance and can withstand temperature from -60°C to 220°C under normal use.

3. Good conductivity

When the liquid flows in the hose, static electricity will be generated due to pressure, flow rate, friction with the hose wall, and other reasons, which may cause ignition. Composite hoses have good conductivity and is safe and reliable to use.

Why Choose ACC

  • Help customers in the selection of the most suitable and cost-effective hoses according to the transferring media and working conditions.
  • For some complicated working conditions and problems with the use of hoses, our service engineers will assist or design specific hose types for customers and offer a trial period.
  • ACC composite hoses are in strict accordance with international standards. Before the products leave our factory, they are tested according to the standard of 1.5 times the working pressure, conductivity, elongation and other tests.
  • Quality and on-time delivery are guaranteed with a reasonable quotation.
  • A professional R&D and after-sales service team, and a one-year warranty period is provided.
  • ACC offers use, cleaning and maintenance training, and assists users in regular professional inspections and provides analysis reports.

ACC composite hoses are manufactured through professional manufacturing process technology to ensure consistent quality: uniformity of hose wall thickness, accuracy of diameter size.

Advantages:

  1. The couplings of ACC composite hoses are of global standards, and interchangeable.
  2. Low failure rate - The connection of the couplings and hose is very tight. Couplings are crimped and sealed by oil resistant, acid and alkali resistant rubber seals. Threaded connection is used and additionally ferrules are used for reinforcement.
  3. Good performance - The inner and outer steel wire helix are tightly connected; good conductivity; lightweight; corrosion-resistant; good pressure resistance.
  4. High production efficiency - Generally, a single composite hose can be up to 30 meters long and only requires two people to operate. The efficiency of one composite hose production line is equivalent to four production lines with traditional technology.
  5. Repairable - The couplings can be changed. And the repaired hose has the same safety factor as a good hose, which greatly saves the cost for customers.
