Proper maintenance of large diameter oil hose
Choosing the right hose for the job is essential to increase uptime and safety. The wrong choice can lead to unnecessary downtime, higher costs, and higher risks. Maintenance technicians and plant managers must consider the material, construction type, end connectors, and application of the hose. They also need to monitor hose performance regularly to determine if it needs to be replaced.
When sizing a pipe, it is important to consider the distance between the endpoints and the pressure loss that will occur when using the hose. This is due to friction between the inner surface of the fluid and the length of the hose. The inside diameter of the hose (ID is a measurement of the straight-line distance between the two farthest points on the inner surface of the hose, usually expressed in inches or fractions of inches. Metric sizes are also available, but are not always necessary to meet exact specifications. Jason has a large number of hoses in the oil and field category. These products are designed for a wide range of applications, including inhaling and venting petroleum-based fuels, delivering liquefied natural gas and removing steam from gasoline. This multilayer high pressure rubber hose features an external clockwise PVC helix for easy dragging. A safety ohmic grounding wire embedded in the wall of the flexible tube prevents static buildup. The hose can withstand the harshest industrial and agricultural hydraulic systems while still providing the highest flow rates and buoyancy. The plasticizer in the rubber elastomer provides flexibility to the hose, and when they are heated they break down and harden.
Any combination of oxygen and heat can speed up the hardening process. Another effect is thermal aging, which is caused by running the hose in a hot area for a long time. This condition can cause the hose to lose flexibility and harden, which can cause the pipe to burst or leak. Hoses that show signs of heat aging, hardening at room temperature, or other signs of heat hardening may need to be replaced. You can also replace the hose with one that operates continuously at a lower temperature, such as a hose made of metal. After removal from the application, the hose may show signs of hardening or cracking. This indicates that the hose has been exposed to aerated oil that causes oxidation of the inner tube. Pinholes and leaks in hose covers are common causes of hose failure. In addition, fluid leaking from the lid (e.g. oil or kerosene or gas) can cause corrosion of the wires around the fitting. This damage may be due to incorrect assembly techniques or lack of proper lubrication, it may be due to rubbing against foreign objects - other hoses, clamps of the wrong size, sharp corners or brackets.
The main raw materials of large diameter oil hose include fluorocarbon, nitrile rubber and fluoropolymer. Nitrile butadiene rubber Buna-N is the most common phosphate ester based hydraulic fluid (Skydrol(tm)) hose. Neoprene is also a synthetic rubber compound similar to nitrile butadiene rubber and has good tolerance to petroleum products. This is the best material for use with phosphate ester based hydraulic fluids (Skydrol(tm)). Polytetrafluoroethylene or PTFE is another commonly used fluoroplastic chemical in which carbon atoms are shielded by fluorine atoms. This gives PTFE strong interatomic bonding, making it chemically inert. A variety of other materials are also used to make large diameter oil hoses. Hose reels must be made of corrosion-resistant, durable and heat-resistant materials for use in toxic environments. Customers can specify a variety of specifications. Some of them include size, end, and intended application. Pressure: The hose must be able to withstand any expected pressure. This is especially important when the application requires pressure changes or surge pressure. Delivery: The hose shall be delivered to the customer on the specified date. This ensures that the hose is in good condition and can be used without repair.
