How to choose the right industrial hose in 7 steps
A perfect match
What makes an industrial rubber hose a perfect fit for every factory worker and application? Choosing the right industrial hose for the transfer and conveying of liquids and gases is a tough one for every manufacturer. Why? Because each industrial plants differ. A lot. They vary when it comes to applications, environment, people and, of course, the product itself. And what about establishment? Is there indoor or outdoor machinery? Do the activities of employees take place inside or in an open space? Because of all the possible situations, we set up a useful guideline: S.T.A.M.P.E.D.
What is S.T.A.M.P.E.D.?
At GOODALL, we use S.T.A.M.P.E.D. — a 7-step-guideline for manufacturers to choose the right industrial hose. Therefore, this guideline is essential in the selection process. It defines and highlights seven characteristics about hoses, from size to pressure and the attachment onto the application or machine. Once we have finished step 7, we compose the ideal fundament for developing the right industrial hose.
Step 1: Size
Industrial hoses cover distances between machines, vehicles, devices and factory workers. Therefore, the length of the hose needs to be determined. Also the inside diameter needs to be determined according to the purpose of the hose.
Step 2: Temperature
Industrial hoses transfer liquids, gases, steam of various types of temperatures.
What is the maximum temperature that the hose should be able to convey?
Step 3: Application
Maybe the most important question of choosing the right industrial hose:
what is the actual application of the hose? Will it be used indoors or outdoors, by workers or by machines or vehicles? For offshore or onshore usage?
Step 4: Material
In order to develop the perfect industrial hose, we need to know the material of the
product that is conveyed through the hose. Is it liquid, gas or steam? Does it contain acids of other aggressive substances?
Step 5: Pressure
The product is transferred through the hose via pressure or vacuum. After defining the material of the product, the required pressure or vacuum needs to be determined. Thick liquids, for example, require a higher pressure than steam.
Step 6: Ends
Industrial hoses used at factories and plants are connected to several machines, vehicles and devices. Therefore, the type of end connection of the hose needs to be determined.
Step 7: Delivery
The last step of this guideline is delivery: the date when the hose is required.
Choosing the right industrial hose. Together.
