High-pressure steam hose
Goodall® has done a lot of research during the past few years in the field of
high pressure rubber steam hoses. Over the years we have improved the compounds and materials we use. Especially the rubber compounds of the tube and the cover has been drastically improved.
The effect of a damaged steam hose
It is very important to work with the right high-pressure steam hose to prevent dangerous situations. One of the most common cause of failures of steam hoses is 'popcorning'. This occurs when microscopic water particles penetrate into the pores of the tube of the hose and remain trapped. When you connect the hose to the steam network again, the enclosed steam will expand in the tube with a factor 1600x. This sudden increase in volume will cause the formation of steam bubbles in the tube, and the rubber will be blown out from the tube.
Another common damage of hoses is corrosion of the steel reinforcement wire. Those wires can corrode and will cause weakness to the steel braiding.
Suitable high-pressure steam hoses
To prevent damage, Goodall has designed two different Inferno steam hoses that are resistant to rust and popcorning and withstand heavy use. The Inferno ISO 6134-2A steam hose is braided with zinc-plated wire, increasing the corrosion resistance three times. The Super Inferno is our top steam hose and market leader. It beats other products with a safety factor that is much higher as the ISO standards.
