Industrial plastic hoses against the power of nature
Industrial rubber hoses
When we hear the name “industrial rubber hoses”, we think of the hoses used in factories and workshops. Although these hoses are used indoors and in factories, these places are not the only ones where plastic industrial hoses are used, but also in various outdoor environments such as oil and gas industry, petrochemical field and Chemicals are also used frequently and are very practical This issue is also about machines and cases where devices should be placed in outdoor environments (soldiers). The presence and industrial rubber hoses are one of the most important parts in this regard, and when we want to work in outdoor environments. Think about it, we need to consider all industrial rubber hoses and make good choices between them.
Industrial rubber hoses are used for outdoor applications and devices (open head) and employees working in outdoor environments (underwater, coastal areas and outdoors). Various industries such as agriculture, petrochemicals and mining all have to work with water, steam, oil, gas, acid and other liquid materials, all of which are transported by industrial plastic hoses. Examples are fire services, oil platforms, or the aerospace industry, all of which operate in external environments. Another common denominator in all of this is the need for rubber hoses that are resistant to various weather conditions.
External environmental conditions
Daily use in outdoor industries makes rubber hoses extremely vulnerable. These hoses are very sensitive to both the effects of nature and human influences. The first and most important thing is that the hoses are exposed to the weather (from mild weather to stormy weather). Rubber hoses must withstand wind, rain, sub-zero temperatures, sunlight and even storms. The impact of these forces is also more evident over time. Rain creates a pool of water, the sun transmits heat and light, and the wind causes movement and cold. These weather conditions are an indispensable part of working in these industries.
24-hour variable workflow
Working in an outdoor environment means a dynamic workflow, which means that employees and devices are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Industrial rubber hoses are located on the ground and most of the time do not have guards. In addition to these conditions, the number of times the industrial hoses are used and used is not high and the lack of fluid flow in them causes them to be in a state of vulnerability and “freezing”. At the same time, hoses are exposed to human movements, trucks and machines.
Climate conditions and movement by humans and machines are difficult to define. Unfortunately, many chemical plants, drilling rigs, and factories still use conventional rubber hoses. For example, they use these hoses even to transfer water in the event of a fire. Ordinary rubber hoses and other hoses do not even have good resistance to ozone and sunlight, and after a few months of use, they start to break down, burst and flake. Accordingly, these rubber hoses do not have proper safety and cause dangerous consequences.
