PVC steel wire hose is a flexible hose. It adopts clear PVC and has a high-quality spiral steel wire reinforce. While such reinforce makes the hose strong and durable. Therefore, such PVC hose is suitable for a wide range of apps. PVC steel wire hose is a good choice for agriculture, mining, oil and gas. While it can transfer water, gas and solid in these industries
Structure of PVC steel wire hose
The inner tube is clear PVC. Thus you can see the flow of the liquid or gas easily.
The reinforce is a spiral of high quality steel wire which makes the hose strong and durable.
The outer cover is also clear PVC material and it’s to protect the steel wire reinforce.
The end fittings are to connect the hose to the piping system. These fittings can be various materials such as PVC, brass or stainless steel.
PVC steel wire hose is flexible, thus you can bend it into tight spaces. The flexibility of the hose depends on the diameter and the thickness of the reinforce. In general, smaller diameter with thinner reinforce is more flexible. While larger diameter with thicker reinforce may be less flexible. However, even larger diameter PVC steel wire hoses can be flexible compared to other types of hoses. The flexibility also depends on the ambient temp. Colder weather makes the hose less flexible and more stiff.
