Different types of Rubber Hoses

May 20, 2013

Rubber Hoses are things that are required in all spheres, be it industrial or domestic. The need for Rubber Hoses is felt in all areas where conveying matter from one place to another, in large quantities, is required. Rubber Suction Hoses are pipes that contain an inner tube, reinforcement, and an outer rubber cover. These layers improve the strength of the Hose and help it dispense the materials better. These Hoses are usually further strengthened with the use of adhesives. The use of Hoses makes dispersal of fluids like water, oil and chemicals extremely convenient. Different types of Rubber Hoses are available to buyers today, and are required in accordance with the applications.

Classification Of Rubber Hoses

  • Straight Rubber Hose: One of the most conventional types of Hoses, this one is used as a fuel hose, vacuum hose, or heater hose. It is efficient but may bend under too much pressure.
  • Curved Hose: This Hose is required for slightly more challenging applications, where the source & destination (the point from where the material transfer starts to where it eventually ends) are located.
  • Universal: This type of Rubber Hose is clamped at one end and can be bent, until it assumes the required shape.
  • Formable Hose and Fuel Hose: A Formable hose is fitted with wires inside, so as to make them flexible enough to be molded into various shapes and sizes. A Fuel Hose on the other hand, uses Metal Tubes.
  • Power Brake Booster Hose: Power Brake Booster Hose and Brake Hose are other types of  Hoses that are used for their strength, fuel resistance and the ability to withstand high pressure.
  • Other Types – On the basis of materials used for construction of Hose Pipes, ones made of unreinforced rubber and Radiator Hoses are used for vacuum hose, windshield washer hose& drain hose, and cooling purposes respectively.

Rubber Hoses are designed in differing capacities and different constructions. Any use of these Pipes beyond their strength does not only reduce their efficiency, but in some cases, may prove detrimental too. If these things are kept in mind while using, the Rubber Hoses can offer excellent performance for a very long time to come. Santosh Rubber Industry makes available a wide range of Rubber Hoses such as Fire Fighting Hoses, Industrial Rubber Suction Hose etc. for various industrial and domestic purposes.
