Choosing the right hose is often not so simple. There are countless factors to consider in the search. First and foremost, the area of application must be determined, because this provides information about the other parameters.
The pumped medium is essential in determining the hose: Is it gaseous, liquid, dusty or solid? And how abrasive or aggressive does it behave towards the hose during conveying? Depending on the application and the conveyed medium, properties such as temperature and pressure resistance (for suction or extraction) as well as flexibility are required.
In addition, hoses may have to meet special conditions. For example, for flame retardancy (fire protection) or in humid environments, certain additives help to optimize the hose for its intended use.
Are you looking for a hose with very specific properties? Our product finder will help you find the right hose for your application. Simply enter important parameters such as medium, temperature resistance or pressure behavior and you will quickly and specifically receive your desired product.
