|The hose inside diameter (I.D.) and length required to meet the application requirements. (i.e. |
2” x 20 ft.)
|Maximum temperature of product con¬veyed through the hose assembly (i.e. 200˚F).|
|Describe the actual use of the hose (i.e. Ship-to-Shore unloading, in-plant chem¬ical, tank truck |
unloading, etc.). The concentration of the product(s) must also be known.
|Air, water, the specific chemical, product, Conveyed or material conveyed (i.e. compressed air).|
|The pressure or vacuum at which the material is being conveyed through the hose assembly |
(i.e. 80 PSI).
|Type of end connections required to meet the application and be compatible with material |
conveyed (i.e. Boss Male x Boss Ground Joint).
|Date product is required (i.e. Friday, June 16, 2014).|
Date product is required (i.e. Friday, June 16, 2014). Once the information in the acronym “STAMPED” referenced above is obtained, it is essential that a hose and coupling combination meet all of the “STAMPED” requirements as recommended by the manufacturer of the various products incorporated within the hose assembly. “Always use the printed information to insure the accuracy of any recommendation.”
Do not exceed the printed, recommended service criteria.
All hose and hose assemblies have a finite life. Proper care, inspection and testing will prolong the service life and reduce the incidence of failures in service. Service life of hoses cannot be predicted because service conditions vary.
