For hot water and saturated steam, general high-pressure rubber hoses cannot work properly. However, steam hoses with braided steel wire reinforcement can provide the best solution. It is mainly used to transport steam and control heat. The hose is very soft and resistant to vibration. It consists of three parts: hose, steel wire and outer surface. Steam hose is made of high-quality black smooth synthetic rubber (mainly EPDM), which has high temperature resistance. Therefore, the hose can safely convey steam.
What is steam?
Steam is the gaseous state of water, In industry, steam is used as a source of heat or propulsion. According to the difference in temperature and pressure, steam is divided into three types: dry steam, wet steam and superheated steam. These different forms of steam can be used in various applications, and the correct selection of hoses is required to ensure the correct transmission of steam. Some common applications are: Heating, Propulsion, Cleaning, Moisturization, Humidification, Atomization
Types of steam hoses
ISO 6134 has classified steam hoses to convey saturated steam into two types:
Type 1: Low pressure steam hose
Corresponding temperature: 164°C
Maximum working pressure: 6 bar
Type 2: High pressure steam hose
Corresponding temperature: 210°C
Maximum working pressure: 18 bar
