Steam is a very special medium in fluid transport. The temperature conventional saturated steam ranges from 100℃ to 230℃, at which the pressure can be up to 18bar. But it is extremely dangerous if steam leaks out, especially if it burns people.
So, high temperature, high pressure, danger, all these characteristics, we are required in the face of the steam hose selection, to be cautious and prudent, absolutely can not have any error.
Industrial grade steam hose, is a class of products which used very much. Generally, the tube and cover of steam hose are EPDM, with wire braiding reinforcement. The safety factor of 10 times, and blasting pressure up to 170bar. Especially EPS industry, high temperature, hot and cold alternate, reciprocating motion, is need to use steam hose.
For example, RSTH steam hose of Everflex is a product with extremely good performance:
Tube: Synthetic rubber EPDM
Reinforcement: High tensile wire braiding
Cover: EPDM rubber
W.P: 17 bar
B.P: 170 bar
Excellent resistance to high temperature
