How To Pick the Perfect Hose The first question you should ask yourself before buying a hose is, “What will this hose be used for?” Are you transporting a simple liquid like water? Are there potentially corrosive chemicals that could eat away at the hose and cause a spill? Is the liquid heated, under high pressure, or a gas? All of these questions should be considered before you start looking for the perfect hose.
Why Are Hose Clamps So Popular? Hose sleeves (also known as hose covers or protectors) come in many different sizes, thicknesses, and materials, from simple nylon hose protectors to heavy-duty fire sleeves. Let's take a moment to look at some of the different types of hose sleeve protectors and their uses.
Why You Need Hose Protectors Hose clamps are designed to help seal and stabilize a hose configuration when a hose is connected. They are usually made of two metal bands and a screw mechanism that squeezes the bands together. This simple design allows the user to tighten or loosen the clamp as needed.
A Quick Guide To Quick Disconnects There are some factors you should consider before buying a quick-connect coupler, such as the size of the hose system, the flow capacity, and how much leaking or corrosion is acceptable. Be sure to check the stats on the quick disconnect before purchase to ensure it will match your specific needs.
