Maintenance of Rubber Hose

Maintenance of Rubber Hose

Rubber hose is a common rubber product. It is often used in automobiles, cranes, loaders and other engineering machinery. It acts as air hose, water hose, oil hose, etc., providing an indispensable role for the normal operation of equipment. However, incorrect use and storage will often cause damage to the hose, so do you know how to maintain it?

During transportation and loading, rubber hose should be handled lightly, if the total amount is too large, you can use a forklift and other machinery to assist. Then the rubber can't be bent too much, and there should be no heavy objects squeezed, otherwise the structure of the hose may be damaged. Moreover, there should not be some chemicals such as acid and alkali salts that are easily corroded with the rubber tube and some sharp objects around the rubber hose. To prevent scratches due to accidents during transportation

Before installation, you must first confirm the nature of the material to be transported, and then use this to select a suitable material for the rubber tube that can carry this material. The temperature resistance is good, and if you use a nitrile hose with poor temperature resistance, it will affect the efficiency of the work. After that, the actual working pressure cannot be greater than the rated working pressure of the rubber hose. If the pressure is too high for a long time, the hose may crack or even break, seriously affecting the normal operation of the equipment. In addition, it is not possible to work alternately in humid air and water for a long time, which will cause the water-soluble substances in the rubber tube to ooze out, which will seriously reduce the life and performance of the rubber tube.

After the use of rubber hose, if the conveyed materials are corrosive, it is best to clean them and dry them so that no materials remain inside. As for other general materials, it is recommended to wash and dry Store. Afterwards, the storage area cannot be exposed to direct sunlight and needs a dry and ventilated back sun. There should also be no heat source near the rubber tube, because high temperature will accelerate the aging of the rubber tube, which is not conducive to the purpose of storage.
