LPG Hose

‘Orange Band’ Liquefied Petroleum Gas hose to EN 1762. For propane, butane and their mixtures to EN 589. As the hose lining is resistant to diffusion the hose is also suitable for natural gas. Use with propene (propylene) possible – pricking required. Not suitable for ammonia. Rugged and long-lasting construction with low tensile braids. Permitted working pressure 25 bar, burst pressure >100 bar. Temperature range -40°C up to +70°C (Special type LPG-LT does not crack down to -50°C). Approved by DVGW, approval No. DG-4621 AU 0049.

Lining: Nitrile rubber (NBR), black, electrically conductive, diffusion resistant
Reinforcements: Textile braids with 2 crossed tinned copper strands
Cover: Chloroprene (CR), black, electr. conductive, flame and abrasion resistant, ozone, UV and ageing resistant

Assembly and tests: For L.P. Gas hoses only suitable safety fittings acc. to EN 14422 or EN 14424 must be used which can be mounted tightly, see examples below. According to EN 1762, hose assembling must include a mandatory pressure and conductivity test.

Petroleum Hose
‘Yellow Band’ high pressure fuelling hose without helix for reel operation. Ideal for all petroleum based products. Temperature range -30° up to +90°C (temporarily up to 110°C). Electrical conductivity < 106 Ohm. Corresponds to EN 1761. Can be calibrated according to European regulations. Approved acc. to German military standard VG 95 955 Typ D. Corresponds to EN 12115.

Lining : Nitrile rubber (NBR) black, no fuel-solubility
Reinforcements : Two low tensile textile braids for extreme low volume increase under pressure.
Cover : Chloroprene (CR), black, conductive

The lining is resistant to swelling, solubility and discolouration. It is flexible at low temperatures. The cover is resistant to abrasion and weathering and furthermore provides a very good low temperature flexibility. Meets the material group NBR 1 of the EN 12115. Marking: Yellow bands every 4 mtr. Continuous, vulcanised embossing.

Chemical Hose
Lilac Band’ multi purpose hose for chemicals, acids (except for concentr. oxidising acids ), alkalis, salt solutions, alcohols, polar solvents, acetates, aldehydes, ester, ketones, hot cooling water, hot air, not oily. Temperature range -40° up to +100°C (depending on medium). Open steam cleaning up to 150°C/ max. 30 min. Not suitable for aliphatic, aromatic and halogenated hydrocarbons, fuels, chlorine, ether, tar oils and oxidising acids.

Lining : EPDM, black, smooth, seamless, el. conductive
Reinforcements : Textile braids (Type CHS additionally with galvanised steel helix )
Cover : EPDM, conductive, resistant against ozone

Application: Highly flexible hose for more than 75% of all industrial chemicals. Limits regarding medium, concentration, temperature see resistance chart. Electrically conductive connection via tube or cover without metallic contact. Meets EN 12115.

Marine Hose

‘Yellow band’ Marine Cargo Hose with vulcanised built-in nipples.

Lining : NBR black, el. dissipative, no fuel-solubility
Reinforcements : multiple low tensile textile cord layers, standard type SBS with galvanized steel helices
Cover : Chloroprene (CR), black, smooth, el. Dissipative

Specification: Marine Cargo Hoses (Bunkering Hoses ) with conical transition to the fitting and covered reinforcements. Vulcanised built-in flange nipples (see overleaf). Meets EN 1765.

Application range: For bulk loading and unloading of bunkering ships and tankers, for petroleum based products up to 50% aromatic content. Temperature range from -35°C up to +82°C, temporarily until 90°C.

Marking: Yellow bands and vulcanised embossed stamps according to standard and customer requirements, stating type, size, manufacturer and production date

Safety Break-away Couplings
Safety Break-away couplings are used to prevent pull away accidents, protect terminal and loading/unloading equipment and eliminated unwanted product release. The break-away couplings has a diverted breaking point which will break at a determined break-load where upon the internal valves will automatically close on both sides. This will in a longer time frame minimize down time, save money, equipment and the environment.
