Satisfactory performance and appearance depend upon proper hose installation. Excessive length
destroys the trim appearance of an installation and adds unnecessarily to the cost of contraction will
cause poor power transmission and shorten the life of the hose.
|Since hose may change in length |
under the surge of high pressure,
provide sufficient slack for
|Due to changes in length when |
hose is pressurized, do not clamp
at bends so curves absorb changes.
Do not clamp high and low.
|Avoid sharp twist or bend in hose |
by using proper angle adapters.
|Adequate hose length is most |
important to distribute movement

|To avoid twisting in hose lines |
bent in two planes, clamp hose at
change of plane, as shown.
|Obtain direct routing of hose |
through use of 45° and 90° adapters
and fittings. Improve appearance
by avoiding excessive hose length.

hose should be bent in the same
