Oil delivery hose is a kind of rubber hose that can transport oil materials such as gasoline and diesel. It is generally made of nitrile rubber. Besides oil resistance, petroleum transfer hose also has good air tightness, temp resistance and anti aging property. Thus it is really popular in industry. However, rubber oil hose often serves on internal short distance oil pipes or temporary oil transfer pipelines. While it seldom delivers oil in a long distance, why?
Nitrile rubber pipe has excellent oil resistance, which is the the best among general rubbers. But it is indeed not suitable for long distance oil delivery.
Why nitrile oil delivery hose is not suitable for long distance use?
When using rubber hose to transport oil over long distances, you must not only consider the oil resistance. But in fact, you should also consider the pressure, stiffness, toughness and cost. Nitrile tube has a certain resistance to weather. But it can not meet the needs of the changing outdoor environment. Moreover, although the quality of nitrile pipes is high, the price and cost are also high. Therefore, the steel pipe is more suitable for long distance oil deliver. While nitrile fuel hose is ideal for the use in a short distance. For example, automobile, machinery, etc.
